Left behind: How online learning is hurting students from low-income families

Los Angeles Times

Maria Viego and Cooper Glynn were thriving at their elementary schools. Maria, 10, adored the special certificates she earned volunteering to read to second-graders. Cooper, 9, loved being with his friends and how his teacher incorporated the video game Minecraft into lessons. But when their campuses shut down amid the COVID-19 pandemic, their experiences diverged dramatically. Maria is a student in the Coachella Valley Unified School District, where 90% of the children are from low-income families. She didn't have a computer, so she and her mother tried using a cellphone to access her online class, but the connection kept dropping, and they gave up after a week. She did worksheets until June, when she at last received a computer, but struggled to understand the work. Now, as school starts again online, she has told her mother she's frustrated and worried.

Cadence Delivers Machine Learning up to 5X Faster Regressions – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Core engine performance enhancements accelerate verification throughput by reducing stimulation cycles with matching coverage on randomized test suites. Cadence Design Systems, Inc. today announced that the Cadence Xcelium Logic Simulator has been enhanced with machine learning technology (ML), called Xcelium ML, to increase verification throughput.Using new machine learning technology and core computational software, Xcelium ML enables up to 5X faster verification closure on randomized regressions. Using computational software and a proprietary machine learning technology that directly interfaces to the simulation kernel, Xcelium ML learns iteratively over an entire simulation regression.It analyzes patterns hidden in the verification environment and guides the Xcelium randomization kernel on subsequent regression runs to achieve matching coverage with reduced simulation cycles. Cadence's Xcelium Logic Simulator provides best-in-class core engine performance for SystemVerilog, VHDL, mixed-signal, low power, and x-propagation.It supports both single-core and multi-core simulation, incremental and parallel build, and save/restart with dynamic test reload. The Xcelium Logic Simulator has been deployed by a majority of top semiconductor companies, and a majority of top companies in the hyper-scale, automotive, and consumer electronics segments.Kioxia has effectively utilized Xcelium simulation for a variety of our designs, and it addresses our ever-growing verification needs.


IIT Roorkee joins Coursera to launch 2 AI, ML programmes - Express Computer

#artificialintelligence

The Indian Institute of Technology-Roorkee (IIT-R) in partnership with leading online learning platform Coursera on Thursday launched two new online certificate programmes for professionals looking to build skills in data science, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). The six-month certificate programme in AI and ML will consist of video lectures, hands-on learning opportunities, team projects, tutorials and workshops. The programme will also teach classical ML techniques and provide hands-on programming experience with'Tensorflow' software for model building, robust ML production and powerful experimentation. The certificate programme in data science will help professionals build skills in data science, machine learning, critical thinking, data collection, data visualization and data management. "We are delighted to partner with Coursera to help fulfil the goal of inclusive education of the New Education Policy," Professor Ajit K Chaturvedi, Director, IIT Roorkee, said in a statement.


Training a custom single class object detection model with Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels

#artificialintelligence

Customers often need to identify single objects in images; for example, to identify their company's logo, find a specific industrial or agricultural defect, or locate a specific event, like hurricanes, in satellite scans. In this post, we showcase how to train a custom model to detect a single object using Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels. Amazon Rekognition is a fully managed service that provides computer vision (CV) capabilities for analyzing images and video at scale, using deep learning technology without requiring machine learning (ML) expertise. Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels lets you extend the detection and classification capabilities of the Amazon Rekognition pre-trained APIs by using data to train a custom CV model specific to your business needs. With the latest update to support single object training, Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels now lets you create a custom object detection model with single object classes.

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee has partnered with Coursera, to launch new certificate programs in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), and the other one in Data Science. IIT Roorkee will launch both these programs on Coursera in early 2021. The six-month certificate program in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will consist of video lectures, hands-on learning opportunities, team projects, tutorials, and workshops. In addition to providing the coding knowledge and mathematics necessary for building AI and ML expertise, the program will also teach classical ML techniques and provide hands-on programming experience with Tensorflow for model building, robust ML production, and powerful experimentation. The certificate program in Data Science claims to equip professionals looking to build skills in data science, machine learning, critical thinking, data collection, data visualization, and data management. The program will help develop Python and SQL programming skills necessary for a career in data analytics.


AI Helping to Transform Education in Pandemic Era - AI Trends

#artificialintelligence

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on education has been profound, with new ways of thinking about how best to teach students reverberating in institutions of higher learning, K-12 classrooms and in the business community. The role of AI is central to the discussion on every level. For the K-12 classroom, teachers are thinking about how to use AI as a teaching tool. For example, Deb Norton of the Oshkosh Area school district in Wisconsin, was asked several years ago by the International Society for Technology in Education to lead a course on the uses of AI in K-12 classrooms, according to a recent account in Education Week. The course includes sections on the definition of artificial intelligence, machine learning, voice recognition, chatbots and the role of data in AI systems.


Stanford Launches Online Program on AI in Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

The Stanford Center for Health Education has launched an online program on Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare. Designed for technology professionals, computer scientists, and healthcare providers, the program aims to advance the delivery of patient care and improve global health outcomes through artificial intelligence and machine learning. The online program will be taught by faculty from Stanford Medicine. The program's goal is to foster a common understanding of the potential for AI to safely and ethically improve patient care. "Effective use of AI in healthcare requires knowing more than just the algorithms and how they work," says Nigam Shah, associate professor of medicine and biomedical data science, the faculty director of the new program.


Learn the world's most-spoken languages with these virtual courses

Mashable

Don't let the Gen Zers fool you into thinking that the world's most spoken language is memes. While the idea of interacting by way of Spongebob clips and unflattering celebrity photos is fun, it's still not an acceptable way of communication outside of social media -- at least not yet, anyway. The list of the world's most spoken languages includes Mandarin, English, Spanish, Arabic, and Hindi, and learning them is incredibly important. Not only can gaining fluency in these languages open you up to more career opportunities, but it can also warrant you a hefty salary increase. If you want to be well-versed in these languages without using an app that pressures you every second of the day, you can pick up the World's Most Spoken Languages Bundle to beef up your multilingual skills.
