If artificial intelligence isn’t at the top of your priority list, it should be. Deloitte’s “Tech Trends 2019: Beyond the digital frontier” report shows AI topping the list of tech trends that CIOs are eager to invest in.  Terms like “cognitive technologies” and “machine learning” have become buzzwords, but these trends will strengthen–particularly as these systems begin to harness the scads of data available from which they can extract insights. But AI’s promise is more general than just data mining. Lu Zhang, founder and managing partner at Fusion Fund, describes the technology as applicable to a broad swath of commerce: “AI’s application space has developed. The AI market has great potential across various industry verticals such as manufacturing, retail, healthcare, agriculture, and education.”

Intel offers AI breakthrough in quantum computing

Tiernan Ray, ZD Net

We don’t know why deep learning forms of neural networks achieve great success on many tasks; the discipline has a paucity of theory to explain its empirical successes. As Facebook’s Yann LeCun has said, deep learning is like the steam engine, which preceded the underlying theory of thermodynamics by many years.But some deep thinkers have been plugging away at the matter of theory for several years now.On Wednesday, the group presented a proof of deep learning’s superior ability to simulate the computations involved in quantum computing. According to these thinkers, the redundancy of information that happens in two of the most successful neural network types, convolutional neural nets, or CNNs, and recurrent neural networks, or RNNs, makes all the difference.

As Congress considers updating the law guiding federal policy on higher education, college officials across the country have offered a set of three dozen recommendations related to student loans and aid, access and accountability, and the collection of key data. The Higher Education Committee of 50’s ideas for reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA) include: streamlining the Free Application for Federal Student Aid; supporting expansion in online instruction; eliminating higher ed tax credits and using those funds to expand Pell Grant access; and reverting the 90/10 rule ratio to 85/15. It also wants to develop a broad Student Unit Record Data System that would collect and disseminate student-level data, stripped of personal details, to provide better information about national, regional and institutional outcomes.

You Can Expect More Hyper-Personal AI Applications

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Fri, 2019-03-29 01:02

Brian Uzzi, Forbes

It’s about to get personal. Even more personal, that is. We’re already accustomed to AI-driven personalization of everything from book and movie recommendations to music playlists. But this year should bring what we could consider “hyper-personalization” to consumers through a range of applications focused on health, finances, shopping, and everything in between. This is due to the growing capabilities of AI applications to make cost-effective, more accurate predictions; the ever-larger pool of personal data from which such applications can draw; and our collective willingness to “opt-in” to customized suggestions and services. Here’s a quick look at four key areas in which we can expect AI-based hyper-personalization in this year.

Report: 5 models for how colleges can rethink credentials

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Thu, 2019-03-28 01:10

Ben Unglesbee, Education Dive
With students growing reluctant to take on debt and employers focusing their hiring requirements, colleges are seeking ways to measure relevant technical and soft skills and expand their offerings beyond traditional two- and four-year degrees, explains a new report from the nonprofit Education Design Lab (EDL). The report suggests five models institutions can use to address demand for a wider range of credentials, while also considering the need to keep tuition costs down and the availability of new learning technology. Those models include: becoming a “Netflix-style” curator and distributor of educational content; offering services to assess coursework and other learning experiences; cracking the code on reconciling work and life experiences with how colleges and employers measure accomplishments; and being the bridge between higher ed and employers to understand the skills they seek in hires.

Could a regulatory overhaul open up the gates for competency-based education?

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Thu, 2019-03-28 01:06

by Natalie Schwartz, Education Dive

The Ed Department has wavered in its stance on the credit hour. This week, the agency once again proposed to eliminate or significantly change the definition, a suggestion that has previously sparked widespread criticism.  Negotiators representing students, accreditors, colleges and state regulators all have a seat at the table to hash out what happens with the credit hour. What they come up with — if they come up with anything at all — remains to be seen. “How do you balance consumer protection with innovation?” Eduventures’ Lurie asked. “It’s complicated, and it’s going to take some time. The credit hour is a vestige of a completely different time and place … but the question is, what do you do to replace it?”

College Completion Rates Are Up, But The Numbers Will Still Surprise You

Elissa Nadworny, NPR
Go to college, we tell students. It’s a ticket out of poverty; a place to grow and expand; a gateway to a good job. Or perhaps a better job. But just going to college doesn’t mean you’ll finish. To unlock those benefits — you’ll need a degree. And yet for millions of Americans, that’s not happening. On average, just 58 percent of students who started college in the fall of 2012 had earned any degree six years later, according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center.

Digital Classy: 5 Reasons to go for the Online Learning Alternative

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-03-27 01:10

BY ANDREW CIOFFI, Baltimore Post-Examiner

The reasons for the rise in popularity of e-learning are not difficult to arrive at. First, there is undeniable convenience that comes with being able to carry out your studies from the comfort of your own home or the environment you think suits you best. Second, it is incredibly cheap in comparison to booking a place in a learning institution. There are plenty of learning resources available online at the click of a button, which may not be made use of in a traditional learning setting. Finally, and perhaps not so obviously as the preceding reasons, is the fact that many education stakeholders find that e-learning is just as effective, if not more, as learning in traditional settings. Let’s take a look at the reasons many have come to think learning online may be just as good as the real world alternative.

The University of Maryland University College is going national. Since its founding in 1947, UMUC mostly has enrolled members of the U.S. military and working adults in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. But amid a broad military drawdown, the university wants to expand its reach across the U.S. With a new national focus comes a new name for UMUC, which is on track to become the University of Maryland Global Campus this summer.
The institution is already the nation’s largest online public university, enrolling around 90,000 students. But if UMUC wants to keep up with quickly expanding online players like Southern New Hampshire University and Western Governors University, it will need to spend some serious cash.

This multi-institutional study examined the giving patterns of alumni of online degree programs as compared to alumni of campus-based degree programs.  Results suggest that alumni of online degree programs tended to donate early after graduation. In the case of one institution, alumni of online programs donated up to 12 percent more than alumni of on-campus programs within the first three years of most recent degree earned at the institution. In contrast, alumni of on-campus degree programs tended to donate over a longer period time than did alumni of online programs.

Who will lead in the age of artificial intelligence?

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-03-26 01:05

Daniel Araya, Brookings

At the research level, the United States remains highly invested in AI and other disruptive technologies. The National Science Foundation currently invests over $100 million each year in AI research. DARPA recently announced a $2 billion investment in an initiative called AI Next whose goal is advancing contextual and adaptive reasoning. Meanwhile, the U.S. military has created a new Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) to oversee service and defense agency efforts. More recently, the Trump administration has introduced a new executive order for developing a national strategy around AI but has offered little in terms of effective coordination. By contrast, China’s government has made AI a top priority. Where the U.S. has established a strong lead in AI discovery, it is increasingly likely that China may dominate the industrial application of AI.

Why AI needs more women

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2019-03-25 01:05

Kim Nilsson, Forbes

How can we make data more human, if as a human race we cannot even agree on what it is to be human? How do we ensure algorithms work fairly when we cannot agree on what fairness looks like? Role models are vitally important in showing girls and women that they too can work in data science and that this career choice is an option for them. I, like many others, struggle to answer this but what I do know is that giving up is not an option and that we need to make a concerted effort as an industry to make our technology work as well as it can for as many people as possible. There is an urgent need to ensure that AI systems do not discriminate inappropriately against any individual or group. If only certain groups of people build the technology then it is highly likely that discrimination will happen, even if the discrimination is not intentional.

EdExec Magazine

Edtech applications are increasingly being used in classrooms to enhance teaching and learning – however, do schools know what’s being used? What are the benefits, and are they GDPR-compliant? With technology becoming ever more prevalent in the classroom, it’s no surprise that this has evolved into the use of educational applications; teachers all over the country are utilising the benefits of apps within their classrooms. Why? Because apps are a language their pupils understand. The generation of children currently at school generally have easy access to mobile phones, tablets and laptops; as such, apps are often a great way to keep them engaged in the classroom and can provide a range of learning benefits.
