An Action Research Report from a Multi-Year Approach to Teaching Artificial Intelligence at the K-6 Level

AAAI Conferences

In Australia, the Scientists-in-Schools program partners professional scientists with teachers from K-12 schools to improve early engagement and educational outcomes in the sciences and mathematics.  An overview of the developing syllabus of a K-6 course resulting from the pairing of a senior AI researcher with teachers from a K-6 (primary) school is presented. Now entering its third year, the course introduces the basic concepts, vocabulary and history of science generally and AI specifically in a manner that emphasises student engagement and provides a challenging but age appropriate syllabus. Reflecting on the course at this time provides an action research basis for ongoing maturation of the syllabus, and the paper is presented in that light.

Neota Logic Expands Law School AI Outreach Programme

#artificialintelligence

Neota Logic has extended its law school partnership programme, this time with the Faculty of Law at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in Australia. The legal AI and expert systems company's most recent outreach venture will see 20 UTS students develop AI applications to improve the delivery of social justice, which in this case centres around working with not-for-profits. The project, that launches next Spring is also supported by Australian law firm, Allens, whose partners will be involved directly in the programme. Allens is also the alliance partner of UK Magic Circle law firm, Linklaters. The latest educational venture follows on from several others, including last October's partnership with Melbourne Law School, where the aim was to build websites to provide legal help to the public.


Big data science and analytics is the big lure in business schools at present

#artificialintelligence

Billions of data bytes are generated from systems in both structure and unstructured format. A big data analysis solution is therefore needed to stream such huge insights and completely analyse them to accelerate the strategy flow to stimulate business growth as well as overall efficiency. Services in big data not only includes collecting, connecting and attuning data in format. Big data companies Australia empowers enterprises to have more operational efficiency as well as minimises big data security concerns. The Hadoop job market in Australia is so huge.
