IIT-Ropar and TSW Launch a PG Programme in Artificial Intelligence


IIT-Ropar, one of the eight new IITs established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, and TSW, the executive education division of Times Professional Learning (a part of The Times of India Group), have launched a Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Artificial Intelligence & Deep Learning. The programme will be coordinated by The Indo-Taiwan Joint Research Centre (ITJRC) on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), at IIT-Ropar. Supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology, Taiwan, ITJRC is a bilateral centre for collaborative research in disruptive technologies like AI and ML. The programme, with its focus on Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, has an eligibility criterion of a minimum of 2 years of work experience in the IT industry. Though an engineering degree is a desirable prerequisite for this programme, one does not need a coding or mathematics background to be eligible.

How Machine Learning Is Transforming Assistive Technology - The Tech Edvocate


You may hesitate to embrace machine learning until you see how it's transforming assistive technology. In the past, machine learning has caused suspicion about its ability to transform the learning experience for many learners. Some teachers have been slow to trust that a machine can diagnose a learning disability, prescribe an instructional intervention, execute the strategy, and monitor its effectiveness. For students with disabilities, machine learning is equalizing opportunities in the classroom. It's also relieving some of the time-consuming burden placed on teachers when planning specialized instruction.

The End of Handshakes--for Humans and for Robots


Elenoide the android was made to shake your hand. She looks like a Madame Tussad's rendition of a prim fifth-grade teacher. She's dressed in a salmon cardigan with scalloped edges, a knee-length striped skirt, and a wig made of ashy blonde human hair. Her hands are warmed by heating pads hidden beneath the palms. During experiments, she wears white butler gloves.

A New Class of AI Ethics

CMU School of Computer Science

There is a growing consensus that artificial intelligence ethics instruction is critical, and must extend beyond computer sciences courses. Ethics and technology have always been tightly interwoven, but as artificial intelligence (AI) marches forward and impacts society in new and novel ways, the stakes--and repercussions--are growing. "There is potential for (AI) to be used in ways that society disapproves of," observes David S. Touretzky, a research professor in the computer science department at Carnegie Mellon University. One idea that's gaining momentum is AI ethics instruction in schools. Groups such as AI4K12 and the MIT Media Lab have begun to study the issue and develop AI learning frameworks for K-12 students.

Machine learning is difficult to define in just a sentence or two. But essentially, machine learning is giving a computer the ability to write its own rules or algorithms and learn about new things, on its own.

Deforest Launches Technology Practice - Leaders League


The technology practice will be headed by Etienne Luquet Farías and Israel Cedillo Lazcano, specialists in the field who will offer comprehensive and strategic legal advice in all issues relating to innovation, both in the private and public sectors. They will be responsible for the design and supervision of projects relating to the development of technology-focused startups, software and hardware IP, technology transfer, privacy policies and venture capital, as well as fintech, crypto assets, artificial intelligence and machine learning. The technology practice will assist clients in the determination of possible civil or criminal liabilities arising from the creation and use of algorithms, the assignment of rights, the drafting of codes of ethics and regulation through the use of technologies, among other needs. "Technology law involves a plurality of legal norms and technical issues, making it a particularly complex cross-disciplinary practice. Through the use of new technologies, legal problems can be solved in a new way, creating new opportunities," the firm said in a statement.

Deep learning accurately stains digital biopsy slides


Tissue biopsy slides stained using hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) dyes are a cornerstone of histopathology, especially for pathologists needing to diagnose and determine the stage of cancers. A research team led by MIT scientists at the Media Lab, in collaboration with clinicians at Stanford University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School, now shows that digital scans of these biopsy slides can be stained computationally, using deep learning algorithms trained on data from physically dyed slides. Pathologists who examined the computationally stained H&E slide images in a blind study could not tell them apart from traditionally stained slides while using them to accurately identify and grade prostate cancers. What's more, the slides could also be computationally "de-stained" in a way that resets them to an original state for use in future studies, the researchers conclude in their May 20 study published in JAMA Network. This process of computational digital staining and de-staining preserves small amounts of tissue biopsied from cancer patients and allows researchers and clinicians to analyze slides for multiple kinds of diagnostic and prognostic tests, without needing to extract additional tissue sections.

Independent scientists urge UK government to delay reopening schools

New Scientist

Delaying the reopening of primary schools in England on 1 June by two weeks could halve the risk to each child of being exposed to an infectious classmate, according to a report by the Independent Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, a recently-formed group of scientists that is seeking to provide alternative advice to the UK government. The group say that modelling suggests that waiting until September would reduce this risk further, to less than the risk to children of road traffic accidents. The group is chaired by former government chief scientific advisor David King and is separate from the official SAGE committee that advises the UK government. "The crucial factor allowing school reopening around the world has been the presence of well-functioning local test, trace and isolate protocols – something that is now accepted will not be in place in England by early June," the report says. It adds that before schools can reopen, it is important to confirm that daily new ...
