Mind Blowing Tech in Learning: AI, VR, and AR featuring Prof. Donald Clark @DonaldClark

#artificialintelligence

Hoy traemos a este espacio esta conferencia titulada "Mind Blowing Tech in Learning: AI, VR, and AR featuring" del Prof. Donald Clark, del Center for Online Innovation in Learning y que nos presentan así: Artificial intelligence (AI) is now the most potent force in IT and will shape learning technology, allowing us to escape from the 30 year paradigm of flat, linear e-learning. During this COIL Fischer Speaker Series presentation, Professor Donald Clark debunks some myths about AI and provide real examples of AI used now in content creation, feedback, assessment and spaced practice. In addition he will talk about virtual reality (VR) & augmented reality (AR) as reviving'learning by doing' and their power to democratize experience. Donald Clark is an EdTech entrepreneur and was CEO and one of the original founders of Epic Group plc, which established itself as the leading company in the UK online learning market, floated on the Stock Market in 1996 and sold in 2005, now CEO of Wildfire Ltd. he also invests in, and advises, EdTech companies. Describing himself as'free from the tyranny of employment', he is a board member of Cogbooks, LearningPool, WildFire and Deputy Chair of Brighton Dome & Arts Festival as well as a Visiting Professor at The University of Derby and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA).


Learn Python Face Detection Udemy

@machinelearnbot

This course covers the fundamentals of Python programming, as well as an introduction to using image-processing techniques to identify a human face in live video recordings. It will be taught by myself through my desktop, and I will be coding from scratch, and step by step to insure that no ambiguity is present. This course will start out with a brief overview of Python basics such as variables, for and while loops, boolean statements, functions and more. After becoming familiar with Python, we will dive into some image-processing concepts and start on our Python script to detect human faces! This course is intended for anyone who wants to quickly pick up Python and start working on an interesting, applicable project instead of drudging along a twenty-hour tutorial.


Will AI replace university lecturers? Not if we make it clear why humans matter Mark Haw

#artificialintelligence

Many UK universities are struggling financially, but there's one option that is rarely discussed: replacing lecturers with artificial intelligence (AI) machines. This might sound like sci-fi – after all, the lists of occupations vulnerable to AI rarely include teaching, which is still seen as too creative for computers. But a growing database of information harvested from online courses – clickstreams, eye-tracking and even emotion-detection – could make AI lecturers a common feature in the near future. Forget robo-lecturers whirring away in front of whiteboards: AI teaching will mostly happen online, in 24/7 virtual classrooms. AI machines will learn to teach by ferreting out complex patterns in student behaviour – what you click, how long you watch, what mistakes you make, even what time of day you work best.

Fundamentals of Machine Learning with scikit-learn

@machinelearnbot

As the amount of data continues to grow at an almost incomprehensible rate, being able to understand and process data is becoming a key differentiator for competitive organizations. Machine Learning applications are everywhere, from self-driving cars, spam detection, document searches, and trading strategies, to speech recognition. This makes machine learning well-suited to the present-day era of big data and data science. The main challenge is how to transform data into actionable knowledge. In this course you will learn all the important Machine Learning algorithms that are commonly used in the field of data science.
