Empty description
verstelle's insight:
'When IBM’s Deep Blue supercomputer beat chess champion Garry Kasparov, it seemed the world’s fascination with the game might come to an end. But Deep Blue’s triumph actually marked the beginning of a new era of chess competition. Following Kasparov’s defeat, competitive chess players started a new form of chess, called Freestyle Chess, wherein teams composed of any number of humans and computers play against each other. The outcomes of Freestyle Chess tournaments have been startling: teams of amateur human players and less-advanced machines routinely defeat the world’s most advanced chess-playing computers. It turns out that the world’s best chess competitors today are not machines, but humans whose expertise in chess is augmented by machines'

Meet Todai Robot, an AI project that performed in the top 20 percent of students on the entrance exam for the University of Tokyo -- without actually understanding a thing. While it's not matriculating anytime soon, Todai Robot's success raises alarming questions for the future of human education. How can we help kids excel at the things that humans will always do better than AI?

Impressie Blockchain in Education 2017 #bcined2017

Impressie Blockchain in Education 2017 #bcined2017 | Open and online learning | Scoop.it

Blockchain heeft veel meer issues dan je vaak denkt. Het is meer gecentraliseerd (concentratie van macht vooral in China). De software is eigenlijk ook zeer gecentraliseerd doordat enkele ontwikkelaars de ontwikkeling ervan bepalen. In de laatste sessie werd deze technologie “fundamentally incompatible with democratic society” genoemd. Blockchain is ook niet goed schaalbaar. Bitcoin faciliteert slechts 7 transacties per seconde (bij creditcards zijn het 100o maal zo veel transacties per seconde), terwijl Blockchain heel snel groeit. Bovendien kennen veel toepassingen geen beloningen waardoor gebruikers niet gestimuleerd worden de blockchain te ‘voeden’. Blockchain is niet inherent privacyvriendelijk en ook onveilig. Als eenderde van de deelnemers niet te goeder trouw is, kan het systeem worden platgelegd. En je hebt nog steeds een middle man nodig. Als de volgorde van transacties ertoe doet, en als er geen centrale autoriteit is, dan zou je moeten overwegen om blockchain technologie te gebruiken. Bij Bitcoin is dat het geval, maar verder… Je zou beter attribute based credentials moeten gebruiken.

Future of Work: Learning To Manage Uncertainty | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
For generations, new technologies – from the steam engine to the Internet and beyond – have fundamentally changed the nature of work and the economy. But it is happening faster now while we are living longer. Where our parents and grandparents might have experienced only one, or even no, significant change in their lifetimes, you have likely already experienced a dramatic technology-driven shift in your career, and your children will likely absorb a major shift every ten to fifteen years across theirs.
