Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, January 2, 2013 3:18 AM

"A similar shift is happening in the field of artificial intelligence. Scientists aresignificantly improving machine-thinking by reverse-engineering human cognition. According to Ray Kurzweil, a pioneer in voice recognition technology and the author of How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed, the future of artificial intelligence is in pattern recognition. The basic algorithms of human thought, Kurzweil says, just aren’t that complicated. From an observation about the weather to a sophisticated joke, cognition at every level operates according to a few simple principles. Researchers have gotten lost, he says, in the diversity and complexity of individual neurons and are missing the bigger picture."

Sandra Reeb-Gruber's insight:

This is so true, even for higher education or even 'directing' / managing people in the workplace. Teel them what to do, how and when and you're lucky if they even do that (my experience is that people will often not do what you told them, but also will not take responsibility and think for themselves).

Sandra Reeb-Gruber's insight:

After the internships in teacher training programs, being assessed in this way is over. And for higher education no such assessing before hiring occurs (to my knowledge). I like the idea! It also provides the applicant teacher with clear and concrete information as to what is expected of him in his job, instead of letting them figure it out and muddle through.
