No, artificial intelligence can't replace the human brain, and no, we'll never really be able to make AI bias-free.
Education will experience the third-largest growth of any sector, coming in slightly behind government (44.3 percent) and "personal and consumer services" (43.3 percent).
The innovation "is heading on the path to essentially allowing anyone to be a manufacturer."
Artificial intelligence shows promise for education, but only when it comes to supporting teachers with repetitive and predictable tasks.
Will artificial intelligence make most people better off over the next decade, or will it redefine what free will means or what a human being is? A new report by the Pew Research Center has weighed in on the topic by conferring with some 979 experts, who have, in summary, predicted that networked AI "will amplify human effectiveness but also threaten human autonomy, agency and capabilities."
Google has set aside a $25 million pool to fund research work by schools and other organizations using machine learning for "social good."
IT analyst firm Gartner has named its top 10 trends for 2019, and the "immersive user experience" is on the list, alongside blockchain, quantum computing and seven other drivers influencing how we interact with the world. The annual trend list covers breakout tech with broad impact and tech that could reach a tipping point in the near future.
Artificial intelligence could have a profound impact on learning, but it also raises key questions.
H2O.ai, an artificial-intelligence platform producer, is partnering with AI4ALL, an Oakland, CA-based nonprofit working to increase diversity and inclusion in AI and to educate future AI workers about how it can be a force for social good. The goal: to democratize AI.
A competition hosted by the NYU Tandon School of Engineering is challenging humans to create algorithms for producing adaptive settlements in Minecraft. (These are the villages and cities and other environments that players create at will in the online game.) The competition addresses a fairly new area of inquiry for machine learning in games: how to develop algorithms that can design rather than play.
Rising cyberattacks, new federal requirements, and an evolving education landscape have pushed cybersecurity to the forefront for just about every district IT leader.
