Trump’s Plan to Keep America First in AI

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2019-03-02 01:08

Tom Simonite, Wired

“AI has really become a transformative technology that’s changing industries, markets, and society,” says Lynne Parker, who leads work on AI in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. “There are a number of actions that are needed to help us harness AI for the good of the American people.” Parker previously contributed to work by the Obama administration that, a month prior to Trump’s election, led to reports on AI’s potential and societal implications, and a plan for future research. She is also working on a new national AI research strategy, slated for release soon.

You have around 20 minutes to contain a Russian APT attack

Catalin Cimpanu, ZD Net

Governments and private organizations have around 20 minutes to detect and contain a hack from Russian nation-state actors. New statistics published today by US cyber-security firm Crowdstrike ranked threat groups based on their “breakout time.” “Breakout time” refers to the time a hacker group takes from gaining initial access to a victim’s computer to moving laterally through its network. This includes the time the attacker spends scanning the local network and deploying exploits in order to escalate his access to other nearby computers. The “breakout” metric is crucial for organizations, as this is the time they have to detect infections and isolate hacked computers before a simple intrusion turns into a compromise of its entire network.

The Best VPN Services for 2019

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2019-03-02 01:03

Max Eddy , PcMag

A VPN, or virtual private network, is one of the smartest ways to protect your online privacy and maintain your data security. We’ve tested scores of them, and these are the best VPN services for Windows. When you access the internet over Wi-Fi, do you think about who might be spying on your data, or even stealing it? If not, you’re in the majority—unfortunately. Everyone ought to be using a virtual private network, or VPN, whether it’s at a coffeeshop or even at home. Yet when PCMag ran a survey on VPN usage, we found a surprising 71 percent of our 1,000 respondents had never used a VPN at all. Even among net neutrality supporters—who you might think would be better informed on security and privacy issues—55 percent had never used a VPN.

Working to Close the Gender Gap in IT

David Raths, Campus Technology
What is the current state of the gender gap in the higher education IT workforce? According to the latest research from Educause, there’s good news and bad news: On the one hand, the number of female IT staffers has been increasing; on the other, fewer women are being promoted into CIO positions. In a Dec. 6 webinar, D. Christopher Brooks, Educause’s director of research, described the glass ceiling women face in higher ed IT: “For staff members, we are pretty close to parity in terms of distribution between men and women holding those positions. The place we run into problems is as people move up the ladder in terms of managerial responsibility,” he noted. “Between 2016 and 2018 we saw a slight dip in the percentage of women holding CIO positions. We have made some progress, but we are still confronted with some pretty serious glass ceiling issues prohibiting women from moving up the management chain.”

BY LAURA ASCIONE, eCampus News
Internet, or education? If you ask Gen Z, the internet wins: an astonishing 64 percent of Gen Z would rather have unlimited internet access and no college degree than a college degree and no internet access, according to a new study. According to Reality Bytes: The Digital Experience is the Human Experience, it seems the internet and being connected are absolutely necessary for Gen Z-ers. The study, conducted by The Center for Generational Kinetics and commissioned by WP Engine, is a follow-up to a 2017 study.

How Blockchain Is Helping Dallas Students Tell Their Story

Tom Vander Ark, Forbes

Working with North Texas school districts, community colleges and universities as well as Dallas County Promise, Kutty assembled a team to build a technology platform that will give students ownership of their academic transcripts and access to stackable, lifelong credentials. The benefit of a distributed ledger technology like Blockchain is that it allows employers and colleges to have instant verification of a multiple-source transcript. For convenience and security, that beats a paper transcript received in the mail. Once students grant consent, Greenlight gives employers and colleges the ability to see all credentials in one place. It’s like LinkedIn but with credentials verified by institutions.

Across the Country, Universities Are Answering the Call for Innovation

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Thu, 2019-02-28 01:03

By Dan Sommer, EdSurge

Notably, they are expanding their continuing education departments—the arm of the school that has the most flexibility, can move quickly, and is organically connected to the local community. Once considered an unassuming part of the university serving a limited demographic, today’s continuing-ed departments resemble innovation labs, able to launch new programs, engage with outside partners, and respond to employment trends—all with the support and structure of the university. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that jobs for software developers will grow by 30 percent between 2016 and 2016, creating an additional 250,000 such openings available. This ’ crystallizes just one of the many opportunities—and challenges—these continuing education departments face. In my experience working with continuing-ed departments to bridge that gap, and speaking with deans of both large public research institutions and small private colleges, there are three specific areas of innovation that I am excited to see taking root: increased accessibility, more affordability, and a commitment to meet the fast-changing needs of local employers.

Michigan rural areas search for high-speed internet

By ZARIA PHILLIPS, News-Advocate

Frustrated by a lack of access to high-speed internet, some rural communities in western Michigan and the Upper Peninsula are inventing their own solutions. It will be years before solid high-speed internet cables can be run through the U.P., according to the region’s lawmakers. That causes problems now. Northern Michigan University in Marquette faced declining enrollment because students couldn’t do homework or take online classes, said state Rep. Sara Cambensy, D-Marquette. So the university put hotspots on the cell towers all over the U.P. and enrollment recovered.

Policy Briefs Authored by UPCEA, OLC, and WCET to US Dept of Ed and Other Policymakers

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-02-27 14:36

UPCEA, OLC and WCET

UPCEA, OLC and WCET—have issued a set of policy briefs relating to necessary changes to federal regulations affecting the professional, continuing, and online education community. These papers address competency-based education, financial aid for the 21st century student, regular and substantive interaction, and state authorization. The organizations have jointly issued these papers while talks relating to the ongoing rulemaking session are currently underway at the Department of Education to provide additional information to policymakers about the challenges that contemporary learners, and the institutions that serve them, often face. While many of these topics will likely be addressed by the current Department of Education negotiated rulemaking committee, the organizations recognize that others may require Congressional action.

Survey: Faculty Development Most Important Teaching and Learning Issue for 2019

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-02-27 01:11

By Dian Schaffhauser, Campus Technology

For the sixth year in a row, the topic of faculty development has turned up among the top three “teaching and learning issues” in an annual survey done by Educause. This year that same issue was also No. 1, getting 25 percent more votes than the next top choice: online and blended learning. As the survey explained, faculty development refers to the work of helping instructors produce active learning activities that will engage students and help them achieve learning objectives; online and blended learning refers to the creation of courses that will serve students both on campus and remotely.

A Q&A with Alt-Ac Thomas J. Tobin

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-02-27 01:04

Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Ed

My advice to everyone working on a Ph.D. or other terminal degree: look beyond the department walls. Ask after people who studied in your field and landed successfully in other areas of higher education. Find out what they did to get prepared not to be a faculty member—things like taking courses in the business school as electives or interning with an academic press. Spending even twenty minutes at a time talking with colleagues and exploring options can pay big dividends after the excitement of getting your doctoral hood turns into “what comes next?” For those of you who have established careers and are looking to make a wise move to something bigger, more stable, or more engaging: you’re in luck. Consider trying out various alt-ac roles, such as speaking, consulting, writing, and publishing.

The phenomenon of multitasking across three or four internet-connected devices simultaneously is increasingly common. Researchers were curious to know how often this happens during online education, a method of delivering college and even high school courses entirely via an internet-connected computer as opposed to a traditional face-to-face course with a teacher physically present.

As MBAs decline, U of Miami shifts to specialization

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-02-26 01:07

By Natalie Schwartz, Education Dive
Applications to MBA programs have slid downward for the fourth straight year — a trend from which not even elite institutions have been immune. In fact, more than two-thirds (70%) of two-year, full-time MBA programs saw a drop in applications in 2018, including heavy-hitters like Harvard, Wharton and Stanford. Experts offer several explanations for the waning interest in the degree, including a strong job market, declining international enrollment, and students growing wary of high tuition and loan payments. Amid these circumstances, some colleges have been shutting down their MBA programs entirely, citing low demand. Yet others have been able to buck the trend. At the University of Miami’s business school, MBA enrollment grew 12% last year, and officials note a rising interest in its specialist master’s programs.

The technology behind OpenAI’s fiction-writing, fake-news-spewing AI, explained

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-02-26 01:04

by Karen Hao, MIT Technology Review

The language model can write like a human, but it doesn’t have a clue what it’s saying. The passages of text that the model produces are good enough to masquerade as something human-written. But this ability should not be confused with a genuine understanding of language—the ultimate goal of the subfield of AI known as natural-language processing (NLP). (There’s an analogue in computer vision: an algorithm can synthesize highly realistic images without any true visual comprehension.) In fact, getting machines to that level of understanding is a task that has largely eluded NLP researchers. That goal could take years, even decades, to achieve, surmises Liang, and is likely to involve techniques that don’t yet exist.
