Infographic: What Happens in an Internet Minute in 2018?

Infographic: What Happens in an Internet Minute in 2018? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"In your everyday life, a minute might not seem like much.

But when it comes to the vast scale of the internet, a minute of time goes much further than you ever could have imagined. That’s because the internet has a degree of scale that our linear human brains are unaccustomed to operating on.


Today’s infographic is from Lori Lewis and Chadd Callahan of Cumulus Media, and it shows the activity taking place on various platforms such as Facebook or Google in each 60 second span.

It really helps put an internet minute in perspective."

What Can Machine Learning Really Predict in Education? | EdSurge News

Three Ways AI is Changing Education - INC.com

Three Ways AI is Changing Education - INC.com | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Technology is everywhere, and one of the most promising new technologies of the age is artificial intelligence and its sister technology machine learning. AI and machine learning work together to make it easier than ever before to process large amounts of data. It's the same thing that Netflix uses to provide personalized recommendations based on the viewing data of every single user on the site.

Now, this might not sound like it has much to do with the field of education, but if you'll bear with us then we think you might just be surprised. In fact, AI and education go together like chalk and a chalkboard, and the rising new technology might just be what we need to overhaul the education system and to make sure that every pupil is given the best possible shot at academic success.

Here are just three of the main ways that artificial intelligence is set to come along and change the way we look at education.

Year’s resolutions, some consumers already have a jump
on health and wellness: Almost half (49%) own a wearable
device, according to PwC analysis. Of those, 45% own a
fitness band.


Beyond fitness, overall wellness is important to
consumers. They want wearables to help them:

Here are five of the ‘classic’ TED talks we think every teacher should watch and share with students, or better yet, watch together in class and engage students in constructive discussion around their themes. The speakers are leading thinkers in their fields and the themes covered include motivation (Dan Pink), leadership (Simon Sinek), grit ( Angela Duckworth), education death valley (Sir Ken Robinson), and belief in students potential (Rita Pierson).

Beyond Limits - How the internet is becoming a part of us

Beyond Limits - How the internet is becoming a part of us | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

For Professor Yuval Noah Harari from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the merging of man and machine will be the “greatest evolution in biology.”

 

“I think it is likely in the next 200 years or so Homo sapiens will upgrade themselves into some idea of a divine being, either through biological manipulation or genetic engineering of by the creation of cyborgs, part organic part non-organic. It will be the greatest evolution in biology since the appearance of life. Nothing really has changed in four billion years biologically speaking. But we will be as different from today’s humans as chimps are now from us.”

 

But what role will the internet and all its devices – ever smaller and ever closer to us – play in this great evolution? Meet E-man…

What could an AI glean about your personality by analysing your social media presence?  How would you feel about an employer scanning your video interview to feed an artificial intelligence algorithm as it compares your micro-gestures to those of proven producers?   It's a brave new world of work out there.

A Regina high school teacher is using the international smash hit video game Minecraft to teach his students math.

"I was inspired by my own kids — seeing them play Minecraft and building things," said Dean Vendramin, who teaches math and photography at O'Neill high school.

Minecraft involves building structures out of blocks.

"It's almost like playing with digital Lego," Vendramin said.

How investing in AI is about investing in People, not just Technology

How investing in AI is about investing in People, not just Technology | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

How is your organization preparing for artificial intelligence (AI)? Ask this question of businesses investing in this field today, and the answer almost always comes down to "data"-- with leaders talking about "data preparations" or "data science talent acquisition."

While there would be no AI without data, enterprises that fail to ready the other side of the equation-- people-- don’t just stunt their capacity for good AI, they risk sunk investment and jeopardize employee trust, brand backlash or worse.
