Have you ever wondered just how the touch screen on your cell phone, tablet, LED television, or any other device actually works? The current takeaway from the research is that there are potential benefits and risks to deploying technology in learning environments. Independent tests by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (Nist) found the failure rate for finding a target picture in a database of 12m faces had dropped from 5% in 2010 to 0.1% this year.
Fundamentally, it’s because most digital technologies provide possibilities for efficiency gains and customer intimacy. They are using technologies that offer new ways to express their art work in a realistic way for much more time. That’s because companies put the cart before the horse, focusing on a specific technology (we need a machine-learning strategy!”) rather than doing the hard work of fitting the change into the overall business strategy first.
WSJ’s Jason Bellini talks to Real Networks CEO Robert Glaser about his company’s facial recognition technology that is being used in schools and retail stores. All of the above suggest that technology, used well, can drive equity in learning opportunities. These disciplines range from more technical ones, such as computer science, engineering, or information systems, to non-technical descriptions of technology and human interaction from the point of view of sociology or philosophy.
I am interested in how young people are living today when our planet has been driven to fragility by consumption trends intimately related to the rise of mass production made possible through technologies. Beginning in the mid-2000s, companies began testing social technologies within business units and within functions such as marketing to improve critical functional tasks.
AI existed even before the internet was born, but it is now that the data processing and compute power backbone became strong enough to sustain an entire technology by itself. There are some people who worry that the technological revolution and evolution we are experiencing today is moving too fast.
