Thank you to "Google Translate Star" (Forbes) Dr. Franz Josef Och who gave a talk to our 10th graders supporting their AI project.
Global Classroom: GISSV AI Project
"The pace of progress in artificial intelligence is incredibly fast. Unless you have direct exposure to groups like Deepmind, you have no idea how fast—it is growing at a pace close to exponential." ~Elon Musk
From October to December 2017, grade 10 has been working in a cross-curricular and transatlantic project on the implications of the development in the area of Artificial Intelligence. Together with their peers from Beatrix College, Tilburg, The Netherlands, each group chose a research question and produced a website or a film with the results of their research.
"We must address, individually and collectively, moral and ethical issues raised by cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence and biotechnology." –Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum
The students examined the ethical, economic, political, and social implications of Artificial Intelligence in their research question. They had help from numerous experts in the field, who took their time to give the students insight into their field of expertise: Thomas Weiss from Daimler-Benz, Kai Goebel from NASA, Joaquin Quinonera Candela from Facebook, Heinrich Matzinger from Georgia Tech, and Franz Josef Och from Google. The students were also invited to visit AIBrain, a company specializing in artificial intelligence in smartphone and applications in Menlo Park.
"It's going to be interesting to see how society deals with artificial intelligence, but it will definitely be cool." ~Colin Angle, CEO iRobot
The impressive outcome is presented here, so that the whole school community can enjoy the results of this unique undertaking.
