Human Excellence in the Smart Machine Age: An Introduction - 0 views

  •  
    "Speed and quality of iterative learning will be key. I call that high-speed, high-quality learning "Hyper-Learning." Hyper-Learning will require Human Excellence. Human Excellence requires both mastery of self and teaming excellence - the ability to have continual high-quality conversations that result in "collective flow" that enables the highest levels of human performance cognitively and emotionally."

  •  
    "So what makes an online class feel less like it's taught by a bot and more like it's a human-centered experience? The following three principles and related strategies will help faculty keep humans front-and-center of their online courses:"

Transhumanist Declaration - 0 views

  • Although all progress is change, not all change is progress.
  •  
    "Humanity stands to be profoundly affected by science and technology in the future. We envision the possibility of broadening human potential by overcoming aging, cognitive shortcomings, involuntary suffering, and our confinement to planet Earth."

Humanism & PostHumanism - 0 views

  •  
    "One's views about digital technology and "digital people"--even what one identifies as questions, problems, issues, advantages, worries, etc.--will depend upon one's other assumptions and values. Here, I want to talk about two different philosophical systems or stances: humanism and posthumanism."

What is Digital Scholarship? A Typology | William G. Thomas III - 1 views

  •  
    "At a recent talk at the University of Colorado Boulder I discussed various definitions of digital scholarship and how we might categorize digital scholarship. My forthcoming essay in the second edition of Blackwell's Companion to Digital Humanities deals with these questions in depth. This chart offers one way to consider a typology for digital scholarship in the humanities. These characteristics are offered as a beginning point. They are not meant to exclude or restrict the definition of digital scholarship. Indeed, I hope these definitions might provoke some further discussion about how to undertake reviews of digital scholarship. "

Book as Human-Computer Interface - 0 views

  •  
    "In combining the classic feeling of handling a book with the interactivity of the computer, Waldek Węgrzyn of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland, has created a new human-computer interface. His "Electrolibrary" project connects the custom made book to a PC. Providing additional information, relevant to the page being viewed, on-screen. Turn a page in the book, and you "turn a page" on the website as well."

10 Jobs Robots Won't Take Away From You in the Next 10 Years - 0 views

  •  
    "Network World - A recent slideshow, "10 Careers Robots Are Taking From You", highlighted things that, it argued, robots can do as well as humans. But most just augment and improve part of what humans do, not the whole job."

A Quadratic "Learning Map" - 0 views

  •  
    "what if we looked at education from a different perspective? What if we looked at the education and learning for that matter through four quadrants? The top row represents the individual perspective. The bottom row represents the perspective of the collective or group. The left column represents the interior perspective and the right column represents the exterior perspective. The left column can also be thought of as the human perspective and the right is the objective non-human perspective."

7 Things You Should Know About Intelligent Tutoring Systems - 0 views

  •  
    "An intelligent tutoring system is computer software designed to simulate a human tutor's behavior and guidance. Because these systems are able to interpret complex student responses and can learn as they operate, they are able to discern where and why a student's understanding has gone astray and to offer hints to help the student understand the material at hand. Intelligent tutors provide many of the benefits of a human tutor to very large numbers of students. Intelligent tutoring systems can also provide real-time data to instructors and developers looking to refine teaching methods."

    "Hersh believes there is another major factor driving the gap between retention rates in face-to-face programs and those in the rapidly growing world of distance education: the lack of a human touch."

Your Life In 2020 - 0 views

  •  
    "But if technology and the ability to be connected disappear further into the background, what will occupy our foreground? A bit of the humanity we've always valued in the "real world." Legislators who are currently fixated on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education as the key to innovation will realize that STEM needs some STEAM-some art in the equation. We'll witness a return to the integrity of craft, the humanity of authorship, and the rebalancing of our virtual and physical spaces. We'll see a 21st-century renaissance in arts- and design-centered approaches to making things, where you-the individual-will take center stage in culture and commerce."

The human body will be the next computer interface - 0 views

  •  
    "You have probably heard a lot about wearables, living services, the Internet of Things, and smart materials by now. Designers are beginning to think about even weirder and wilder things, envisioning a future where evolved technology is embedded inside our digestive tracts, sense organs, blood vessels, and even our cells."

Ray Kurzweil: This is your future - 0 views

  •  
    "technologies to reprogram the "software" that underlie human biology are already a thousand times more powerful than they were when the genome project was completed in 2003, and will again be a thousand times more powerful than they are today in a decade, and a million times more powerful in two decades. Clinical applications are now at the cutting edge and will be routine in the early 2020s."

Aaron Koblin: Artfully visualizing our humanity | Video on TED.com - 0 views

  •  
    "Artist Aaron Koblin takes vast amounts of data -- and at times vast numbers of people -- and weaves them into stunning visualizations. From elegant lines tracing airline flights to landscapes of cell phone data, from a Johnny Cash video assembled from crowd-sourced drawings to the "Wilderness Downtown" video that customizes for the user, his works brilliantly explore how modern technology can make us more human."

Google Humanlike Computer, Neural Turing Machine, Will Program Itself | Betabeat - 0 views

  •  
    "In two different tests, the NTM was asked to 1) learn to copy blocks of binary data and 2) learn to remember and sort lists of data. The results were compared with a more basic neural network, and it was found that the computer learned faster and produced longer blocks of data with fewer errors. Additionally, the computer's methods were found to be very similar to the code a human programmer would've written to make the computer complete such a task."

Dog Introductions, Humanization and Other Ways Online Ed Can Better Serve Students - 0 views

  •  
    "Online education has been touted as a way to increase access to education. But it's increasingly unclear if online learning is living up to its promise for students, even as digital learning makes its way into more institutions' offerings. The quality of online courses still varies drastically, and research shows there are major racial disparities in digital-learning outcomes. This has all left us asking: Who does online education really serve?"

The Life and Times of James Roebuck, Part 1 - 0 views

  •  
    Shortly after the invention of the quantum computer chip, and the laying of fibre optic broadband to almost every house in the UK, it had been clear that the days of teaching as a profession were numbered. Teaching had been relegated to a minority profession in a matter of years. It had been simply a question of scale. A teacher, working for 45 years, could teach maybe 1,500 children. Some lessons would be better than others, some children would get more attention and do better than others, they'd occasionally need time off and so on. Simply put, human teachers were inconsistent, and not always great. So when the new educational bodies started recording the best lectures for every subject from around in the world, annotating them in 3D, and enhancing them with CG, what could the schools do to fight back?
