'Thought vectors' could revolutionize artificial intelligence - ExtremeTech

Despite all the recent hullabaloo concerning artificial intelligence, in part fueled by dire predictions made by the likes of Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, there have been few breakthroughs in the field to warrant such fanfare.

"Thoughts are just these great big vectors, and that big vectors have causal powers. They cause other big vectors, and that's utterly unlike the standard AI view that thoughts are symbolic expressions."

Richmond now has the highest Hispanic dropout rate in Virginia. According to Vilma Seymour, many latino students fall through the cracks because the system is not set up in their favor. This is why we need to always question the power structures that exist...


Rajat How does one confront the power structures? One at a time.. by becoming mentors. But how does one effect large scale change?

Emma Zahren-Newman On a few fronts, one might be to broaden the school system's concept of "education". Being an informed citizen is more than just being able to memorize answers for a test

Amazing game theoretic take on "The evolution of trust" or rather mistrust :\
Sit back, it will be time well spent(my score 30). Offers a glimpse into the real world of trust, altruism in face of compounding effects of fake news and "virtually" social interaction!

Simple designs may appeal to the limbic brain, but isn't design and ultimately success contextual? For example, a few successful hi-touch websites:-

Simple: Google; LinkedIn(only recently though!), Apple, Medium, Wikipedia

Complex: Facebook, eBay, Amazon, Craigslist, YouTube, Reddit

As MOOCs continue to experiment with delivery models to achieve better student outcomes in order to bridge the gap between user intent and user behavior ( as reflected in low completion rates). One could perhaps think of two broad approaches:

1)Data/AI driven: As laid out in this Berkley piece on a machine learned approach "(by).... both tracking learners’ behaviors in real-time and dynamically adapting content based on each learner’s individual clickstream history." A variant of this approach is already seen in likes of Khan Academy.

2) Human driven : By populating an online classroom with adequate number of mentors and close involvement of professors or TA's along with cohort driven peer evaluations to effectively deal with the fundamental problem of lack of feedback and collaboration in an asynchronous learning environment.
