Think video games aren't art? This Minecraft opera begs to differ.

 

That's an ambitious project under construction at Virginia Tech University, where the school's music department has recruited eight high-schoolers to plot, write and build a Minecraft set for an opera to debut this December. Students are building a massive set for "OperaCraft" in the sandbox building game, and will use their Minecraft avatars to act out the opera's major roles. Voice students from the school's music department, meanwhile, will lend their voices to the project, which is set to Mozart pieces.

COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING
Supercomputing requires math, thinking skills, algebra and computational thinking and an awareness of gateways to computing. New technologies require rethinking the use of technology Cyberlearning does that for transformational learning.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, Today, 1:18 AM
In this case, I have to agree with Google's approach to cutting its power bills.  Perhaps other industries should follow Google's example.  The less we depend on fossil fuels, the better.

Artificial Intelligence Is Setting Up the Internet for a Huge Clash With Europe

Artificial Intelligence Is Setting Up the Internet for a Huge Clash With Europe | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

Neural networks are changing the Internet. Inspired by the networks of neurons inside the human brain, these deep mathematical models can learn discrete tasks by analyzing enormous amounts of data. They’ve learned to recognize faces in photos, identify spoken commands, and translate text from one language to another. And that’s just a start. They’re also moving into the heart of tech giants like Google and Facebook. They’re helping to choose what you see when you query the Google search engine or visit your Facebook News Feed.

All this is sharpening the behavior of online services. But it also means the Internet is poised for an ideological confrontation with the European Union, the world’s single largest online market.

Twitter Grace Hopper Fellowship

Twitter Grace Hopper Fellowship - Splash -

Twitter is a great equalizer where all voices and communities can be heard. It's the place where inclusion lives. Think: #ILookLikeAnEngineer, #HeforShe, #BlackLivesMatter, and many more. We're equally committed to ensuring that Twitter is a great place to work for everyone, everywhere. We prioritize inclusion and are working to advance diversity in our company. 


For the sixth year in a row, Twitter will be participating in the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. We look forward to meeting all of the awesome women coming to Houston in October. 


We’re excited to host the @WomEng Grace Hopper Fellowship. This fellowship is designed to identify and support 14 extraordinary rising college juniors (2018), seniors (2017), and graduate students in computer science, computer engineering, and related fields of study.

 
Through a series of workshops and events before and during the Grace Hopper Conference, the group of 14 Fellows will spend time with @WomEng members and other Twitter executives. We hope you can join us for what will surely be an inspiring week.
