A key driver of this disruption is Artificial Intelligence (AI) &ndash; one of the main technologies behind the automation of 'thinking-work'. Through games and practical activities, children will be given an introductory understanding of AI, ideas for how to use it, and an appreciation of the ethical and social dilemmas that AI will generate."</p> <p>The goal of the workshop is to develop the understanding and critical thinking skills that not only support specific curriculum-based learning goals, but start to prepare children for a future where AI will have significant impact on their lives.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Key workshop activities include:</p> <p>- Analysing the mechanics of learning</p> <p>- Distinguish between a mind and a brain</p> <p>- Rank object intelligence in a game</p> <p>- Build a 'human neural network' in a game</p> <p>- Answer the question &ndash; "can machines think"?</p> <p><br />Topics include:</p> <p>How neurons work</p> <p>- Ethics and AI</p> <p>- Statistics and probability</p> <p>- Data representation and interpretation</p> <p>- Reasoning</p> <p>- Metacognition</p> <p>- Digital Systems</p> <p>- Data and Information</p> <p>- Creating Digital Solutions</p> <p>This workshop is for secondary and upper-primary students, teachers and senior leaders, especially those whose responsibilities include STEM.</p> 141C67F26B797EBD802581B40022082E Tue, 17 Oct 2017 07:46:23 +0100 David Gurteen IntraTeam Event Copenhagen 2018 http://www.gurteen.com/gurteen/gurteen.nsf/id/intrateam18?open Link: <a href="http://www.gurteen.com/gurteen/gurteen.nsf/id/intrateam18?open">Gurteen Knowledge</a><br>Date: 27 Feb - 01 Mar 2018<br>Organizer: IntraTeam<br>Location: Copenhagen, Denmark<br><br> 3A22C017E0E082EC802581AD0048CB19 Thu, 05 Oct 2017 09:50:39 +0100 David Gurteen Perfectly Natural Retreats http://www.gurteen.com/gurteen/gurteen.nsf/id/T01576481/?open Link: <a href="http://www.gurteen.com/gurteen/gurteen.nsf/id/T01576481/?open">Gurteen Knowledge</a><br>Date: 09 - 11 Oct 2018<br>Organizer: Thora Thorsdottir<br>Location: Near Selfoss, Iceland<br><br>This retreat, taking place in Iceland is aimed at professionals who are contemplating change, grappling with work-related issues or who are simply looking for time out to recharge.<br> <br> The purpose, theme and take-away will focus on well-being, presence and ease.
