Georgia Tech's CS Degree Puts Some Certified Beef Into MOOCs - 1 views

  •  
    ""Where's the beef?" was the famous campaign slogan from the 1984 Presidential campaign. For two years, MOOC watchers have been asking the same question, as hundreds of thousands of students participated in free online courses that delivered knowledge but no certification of any real value.

IBM Predicts Computers Will Touch, Taste, Smell, Hear and See In 5 Years - 0 views

No word on a sixth sense, as yet the sole domain of humans."
