Could exams be marked by AI? Ofqual launches ‘exciting’ competition

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Could exams be marked by AI? Ofqual launches ‘exciting’ competition
Freddie Whittaker, Schools Week, 2020/01/09
I really think it's only a matter of time before all student work is marked by AI. At a certain point, it will be hard to justify using human markers when AIs are demonstrably more fair and more reliable. But of course, this still needs to be demonstrated. That's where this work comes in. More...

Adoption of AI in education is accelerating. Massive potential but hurdles remain.

HolonIQ, 2019/04/05
I saw this a few days ago, didn't list it, and then needed it almost right away. That's a pretty good sign I need to list it. This summary describes how artificial intelligence is being used in education. What makes it useful are the breakdowns - differemt AI applications, different uses in education, different reasons for adoption, where AI is creating value, etc. More...

Exploring Minds: Modes of Modelling and Simulation in Artificial Intelligence

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Exploring Minds: Modes of Modelling and Simulation in Artificial Intelligence
Hajo Greif, Perspectives on Science, 2020/01/01
Ignoring the title and main purpose of the paper (29 page PDF) for a moment, I encourage people to look at the first section for a really useful discussion of the various types of models that have been proposed through the years. Models might "bear observable and pre-theoretic similarities to their target systems." Or maybe they "are structures that express interpretations of a formal theory." Or maybe they " are structures that bear a formally defined relation of isomorphism to their target system," as Bas van Fraassen suggested in 1980. Whatever your definition (semantic, syntactic, or other) "models are epistemically more central to science than theories."
All of this becomes really important if you think of minds as being (or containing) models of knowledge, the world, or whatever, whether they are representations, reflections or whatever. More...

Collective Intelligence

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Collective Intelligence
RealMedia video (in the age of YouTube, seeing a Realmedia video seems so... quaint) of a discussion of collective intelligence - though I was intrested in the remarks on patterns. "The patterns he uncovered in the data collected from his name badges and from email and more traditional documentation, demonstrated the significance of social dynamics in workplace productivity. Certain individuals acted as information bottlenecks; others as polarizers, group thinkers, or gossip mongers. Pentland shared information about these patterns of communication with individuals. Related technology might be able to detect depression by examining a person's patterns of socialization." Machines could probably detect depression - and other illnesses - in communications patterns.

L'I.A. débloquera-t-elle les mécaniques quantiques?

Les physiciens ne comprennent rien aux mécaniques quantiques qui régissent le monde. Les algorithmes pourraient-ils les surpasser? Certains sont en train de les enseigner à des intelligences artificielles et croient qu’avec leur aide, les lois de la nature pourraient être déchiffrées. Plus...
