Duke U. lands $3M training grant for artificial intelligence research


DURHAM – The National Science Foundation has awarded Duke University a $3 million, five-year Research Traineeship grant to develop a program for graduate students to develop expertise in using artificial intelligence (AI) for materials science research. The aiM (AI for Understanding and Designing Materials), program will fill a vital workforce gap by training the next generation in the new convergent field of materials and computer science research. "To achieve the promise of the U.S. Materials Genome Initiative of accelerated discovery, design and application of new materials, we must integrate the traditional tools of experimentation, theory and computation with the emerging tools of data science to transform the way we approach materials understanding and discovery," said Cate Brinson, chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science and director of aiM. The Materials Genome Initiative (MGI), launched in 2011, is a multi-agency federal government effort to accelerate the development and deployment of new, advanced materials to address a host of challenges in clean energy, national security, health and welfare. "The MGI promoted a paradigm shift from slow individual experiments and computation to the beginnings of data-driven AI approaches in materials science research," added Brinson.

Integrating AI Ethics into Higher Education Curricula in Africa – RAIN-Africa


How is AI Ethics and Responsible AI currently being taught in Computer Science and Engineering Curriculums across Africa? What issues related to this topic are relevant to students and faculty? And what roadblocks or challenges are instructors facing to bring more discussion of AI ethics to classrooms? The goal of this workshop is to foster a discussion on how to effectively integrate AI Ethics into Computer Science/Engineering programs at African Universities. This is an initial step to gather perspectives on the current situation at representative universities in different countries in Africa, and to initiate a discussion on how we can better support each other with lessons learned and share materials/curriculums to further develop AI ethics programs in higher education. After identifying the current state, the interests of students and faculty and the needs of departments in this workshop session, the goal is to continue the series with more in-depth workshops on specific topics.

One farmer finds answer to ESL students' virtual learning struggles

FOX News

For non-native speaking English students, trying to get good grades while learning a new language can be challenging at the best of times, but as classes turn virtual some students are being left behind. BUCKEYE, Az. -- Virtual classrooms are the new normal for many students, but for non-native speaking English students, trying to get good grades can be challenging in the best of times. As classes turn virtual due to COVID-19, some students are being left behind. Valeria Gonzalez, 11, told Fox News that her school in Buckeye, Az., doesn't offer a virtual English as a second language (ESL) program. All of her classes are taught by an English speaking teacher with no Spanish translation.

Dubai school ties up with MIT for first-of-its-kind artificial intelligence curriculum


Under the project, students will learn a customised version -- unique to the project -- of the popular programming language Scratch. They will also use MIT App Inventor that runs on Android devices and work on developing a robot kit in conjunction with Chromebooks. Students will study CT (computational thinking), the cornerstone computer science discipline that renders complex problems simple so that humans and computers can understand the possible solutions. This includes'pattern recognition', looking for similarities among data, and writing algorithms -- a step-by-step guide to solving a problem or task. Pupils will also learn skills such as'debugging' to identify and remove software or hardware errors and practises like'tinkering' to innovate and build on experimental models or prototypes.

Two pieces of data have been used: grades and tests each on a scale of 0–10.

Master's degree in artificial intelligence now within reach of low-income students


Researchers from Florida Atlantic University's College of Engineering and Computer Science have received a four-year, $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation for a project to make the master's degree in artificial intelligence (AI) accessible to high-achieving, low-income students. The accelerated five-year bachelor's degree in science and master's degree in AI program is designed to adapt curricular and co-curricular support to enable students to complete their degrees in AI, autonomous systems or machine learning, which are critically important areas needed to advance America's global competitiveness and national security. "Artificial intelligence is transforming every walk of life from business to healthcare and enabling us to rethink how we analyze data, integrate massive amounts of information and make informed decisions that impact society, the economy and governance," said Stella Batalama, Ph.D., dean of FAU's College of Engineering and Computer Science and a co-principal investigator of the grant. "This important grant from the National Science Foundation will allow us to recruit and train talented and diverse students who are economically disadvantaged and provide them with a unique opportunity to pursue graduate education in an exciting and burgeoning field." By preparing increased numbers of high-achieving, low-income students to become engineers in these fields, this project addresses the need for growing a more diverse STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) research population.

Tonko, Reschenthaler Introduce Artificial Intelligence Education Act


WASHINGTON--Representatives Paul D. Tonko (D-NY) and Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) have just announced the introduction of their Artificial Intelligence Education Act today, bipartisan legislation that would establish grant support within the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund the creation of easily-accessible K-12 lesson plans for schools and educators to provide students with the tools, skills and social understanding of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in 21st-Century Society. "The development of Artificial Intelligence has fundamentally changed the way we live and work, bringing untold potential in the fields of medical science, research and development, engineering, manufacturing and so much more," Congressman Tonko said. "By providing the resources for our children to learn about AI, we ensure that the next generation of our American workforce has the skill necessary to succeed in this rapidly growing field, thereby helping to drive innovation and economic opportunity. Our legislation will deliver the tools needed to teach AI to students across the nation. I thank Congressman Reschenthaler for his partnership as a co-lead of this bill and urge the support of my colleagues in Congress to help secure a bright future for both our students and our economy."
