Udemy, the largest online learning source, just published its Udemy for Business 2020 Workplace Learning Trends Report: The Skills of the Future (48 pp., PDF, opt-in). As Forbes noticed, the report claims that it is now key "to prepare workforces for the future of work in an AI-enabled world." The report states that "In the world of finance, investment funds managed by AI and computers account for 35% of America's stock market today," citing a recent article in The Economist, The rise of the financial machines. For their part, in the report, Udemy notes that AI is reshaping the world of work. The organization notes that 65% of the leaders cited that AI and robotics are an important or very important issue in human capital.

With each passing year, parents are getting more worried about how their children will fare once it's time to take that step from school to the workforce. They have good reason to fret. Some 17 million Americans under age 30--about one third of the under-30 population--are saddled with student debt. Many are worried about their career prospects despite having invested--heavily, in some cases--in education. The cost of college is being hotly debated.


Computational Neuroscience Coursera

@machinelearnbot

This course provides an introduction to basic computational methods for understanding what nervous systems do and for determining how they function. We will explore the computational principles governing various aspects of vision, sensory-motor control, learning, and memory. Specific topics that will be covered include representation of information by spiking neurons, processing of information in neural networks, and algorithms for adaptation and learning. We will make use of Matlab/Octave/Python demonstrations and exercises to gain a deeper understanding of concepts and methods introduced in the course. The course is primarily aimed at third- or fourth-year undergraduates and beginning graduate students, as well as professionals and distance learners interested in learning how the brain processes information.


Self Assessment Why do we wish to be a Data Scientist?

@machinelearnbot

All of us know and Google Trends have validated the fact that anyone even remotely associated with'data' wants to be a'Data Scientist'. Be it professionals or high school students, this is the latest craze of technology world. There has been a huge surge in the number of people who have enrolled in one or the other eLearning portals like Udemy, Coursera, DataCamp, etc. Leaderships are ready to change their innovation strategy focusing more on churning of their used/unused data to get insights of every aspect of their present/future business model. Even small businesses like the restaurant in the city center downtown wants to strategically classify their guests and with all this buzz around, I literally needed to live on an isolated island to stay away from this. Allow me to begin with a thought-provoking analysis of aspiration agenda for this new generation aspirants by Eric Weber.


Gamified maths, AI & videos in primary school in Finland

Teachers should use teaching methods that utilize technology in the most efficient way. During action research a motivating learning environment was developed, with a digital learning game and the flipped classroom pedagogy. The target group was first year pupils in a primary school. There were seventeen pupils in the class: nine of them were girls and eight were boys. The experiment was held during five weeks and there was one lesson per week.
