AI Takes Over The Classroom: Alpha Helping Solve The Teacher Shortage

Posted by in categories: climatology, education, mathematics, robotics/AI

The teacher shortage crisis is a major concern, casting a shadow on educational quality across the globe. In this academic climate, the rise of AI in the classroom sparks both hope and skepticism. Alpha school is leading the way, devoid of traditional teachers and reliant on its AI-powered curriculum and “guide” system. This innovative approach offers a glimpse of a promising future where technology and human ingenuity merge to redefine education.

AI has become a game-changer in education by customizing learning experiences according to students’ individual learning styles and paces. Alpha’s app-based tutoring system is a prime example of this. It is personalized for each student’s strengths and weaknesses, a significant departure from the traditional “one-size-fits-all” classroom approach. For instance, consider a child who struggles with math concepts. AI can modify the exercises and explanations to suit their learning style, enabling them to understand the material better.

Moreover, this AI-driven education system offers instant and detailed feedback, which may be lacking in some schools. Such immediate response fosters a deeper understanding and encourages a more engaged learning process. This level of individualized attention is a powerful tool for enhancing knowledge and engagement.

What To Know About Where ChatGPT Is Going In 2024

Posted by in categories: business, education, ethics, robotics/AI, sustainability

It’s hard to believe, but generative AI — the seemingly ubiquitous technology behind ChatGPT — was launched just one year ago, in late November 2022.


Still, as technologists discover more and more use cases for saving time and money in the enterprise, schools, and businesses the world over are struggling to find the technology’s rightful balance in the “real world.”

As the year has progressed, the rapid onset and proliferation has led to not only rapid innovation and competitive leapfrogging, but a continued wave of moral and ethical debates and has even led to early regulation and executive orders on the implementation of AI around the world as well as global alliances — like the recent Meta + IBM AI Alliance — to try and develop open frameworks and greater standards in the implementation of safe and economically sustainable AI.

Prepare Our Kids for Life, Not Standardized Tests | Ted Dintersmith | TEDxFargo

Posted by in categories: economics, education, employment, finance, physics, robotics/AI

As a leading venture capitalist, Ted Dintersmith lived and breathed the world of innovation. He has seen first-hand how quickly automation is eliminating the structured jobs in our economy, as well as the opportunities for young adults who are bold, creative, and entrepreneurial. As Ted shifted his focus to the future of our schools, he realized that the core purpose of our schools has been lost in a wave of testing, data, and accountability. In this talk, Ted underscores the potential for our kids and our country if we educate to our innovative and creative strengths, and trust our schools and teachers to prepare our kids for life, instead of for standardized tests.

After a twenty-five year career in venture capital, Ted Dintersmith is now focused on issues at the intersection of innovation and education. In the fall of 2012, Ted served as part of the delegation representing the United States at the United Nations General Assembly, where he focused on global education and entrepreneurship. The first two films he executive produced – Most Likely To Succeed and The Hunting Ground – premiered at Sundance, 2015. His website http://www.edu21c.com describes his initiatives and he can be followed @dintersmith.

New high school curriculum teaches color chemistry and AI simultaneously

Posted by in categories: chemistry, education, robotics/AI

North Carolina State University researchers have developed a weeklong high school curriculum that helps students quickly grasp concepts in both color chemistry and artificial intelligence—while sparking their curiosity about science and the world around them.

To test whether a short high school science module could effectively teach something about both chemistry—a notoriously thorny subject—and (AI), the researchers designed a relatively simple experiment involving pH levels, which reflect the acidity or alkalinity of a liquid solution.

When testing pH levels on a , color conversion charts provide a handy reference: more acidic solutions turn test strips red when a lot of acidity is present and turn test strips yellow and green as acid levels weaken. Test strips turn deep purple when liquids are highly alkaline and turn blue and dark green as alkaline levels decline.
