    John Hunter: Teaching with the World Peace Game

    I’m very fortunate to be here. I feel so fortunate. I’ve been so impressed by the kindness expressed to me. I called my wife Leslie, and I said, “You know, there’s so many good people trying to do so much good. It feels like I’ve landed in a colony of angels.” It’s a true feeling. But let me get to the talk — I see the clock is running. I’m a public school teacher, and I just want to share a story of my superintendent. Her name is Pam Moran in Albemarle County, Virginia, the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. And she’s a very high-tech superintendent. She uses smart…

    These Humans Are Teaching Cars to Drive

    Every year, more than a million people in the world die in road traffic accidents. And many of those fatalities are caused by us, by the mistakes we make as drivers. But there’s a solution. Okay we’re ready. Okay, engaging. And it’s to relinquish control of the wheel to a computer. We’ve dreamed about it for decades, and now we finally have the technology to get us very close. The rest is up to these two. They’re teaching autonomous cars how to drive. My name is Daniela Landey. My name is Steven Lin. And we’re autonomous vehicle operators.

    Anyone Can Be a Math Person Once They Know the Best Learning Techniques | Po-Shen Loh

    I think that everyone in the world could be a math person if they wanted to. The keyword though, I want to say, is if they wanted to.
