    Machine Learning – Part 5 – Human Body & Human Head Extraction – Flame 2020.2

    Hi everyone, Grant for the Flame Learning Channel. With the Flame 2020.2 update… Two new machine learning models… have been introduced into the Flame products. So part 5 in the Machine Learning Series… Introduces Human Body Extraction… And Human Head Extraction. Both machine learning models… allow Flame to look at an image… And identify parts of the human body. So Human Body Extraction attempts to identify the entire human structure… Whereas Human Head Extraction concentrates purely on the human Head. In both cases, you can then use the extraction… as part of a selective or composite. For example, you may need to roto someone in a shot… Or perhaps blur…

    WHICH VERSION? Windows 10 Home vs. Pro vs. Education Comparison

    The free upgrade period for Windows 10 is behind us now, and – despite some initial wording that suggested otherwise – Microsoft has drawn lines in the sand between the multiple “Editions” of Windows 10 – Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education. But what are these differences? I’m EposVox, helping make tech easier to understand a more fun through free educational videos. Today we’re going to be focusing on Windows 10 Home, Pro, and Education to see which version you need to pick up for your needs. We’ll be using the comparison charts directly from Microsoft and discussing them within more practical, realistic expectations. Let’s start with the easy one –…

    How Malala and her father Ziauddin are creating a network of education advocates to help girls learn

    Malala Yousafzai is leading the fight for a more equal world by making sure all girls can go to school. But her campaign for girls started small. When the Taliban invaded her home in Pakistan and banned girls from going to school, Malala and her father Ziauddin began to speak out. They challenged the extremists using the only resource they had: their voices. It is time to take action. So it becomes the last time that we see a child deprived of education. Every day, educators and activists around the world fight for girls in their communities like Malala and Ziauddin did. But too often they lack the funding or…

    The NBA Data Scientist

    If you’re a basketball fan, you know your team’s big stars, head coach, maybe even the rookie bench warmers. But you probably know very little about the Ph.D. mathematicians like this woman. Her job is to crunch the numbers of the game. We’re all in sort of an arm’s race to acquire information. And she’s turning basketball into a hard, cold science. My name is Ivana Seric and I’m a data scientist. For many years, Philly was a tough place to be a basketball fan. But having reached the top eight in the playoffs for a second season in a row, the 76ers right now are in a renaissance. Embiid…

    Practicum: Teaching at Beaver Works Summer Institute

    I’m Melanie Chen. I’m a computer science major at MIT. and I’m interning with Lincoln Labs this summer. Part of my internship has been helping to prototype and to help design the curriculum for the Beaver Works Summer Institute, specifically for Cog*Works. In Cog*Works, high school students are taught various applications of machine learning. We are essentially building up towards helping them develop their own autonomous cognitive assistants, sort of like Siri or Alexa. We gave each team an Echo Dot from Amazon, so they’ve been able to actually see how speech-to-text processing, when done right, can work really well, and they’ve been able to program their Echoes to have…

    Stages of Service Learning

    [Music] [Learning to Give Stages of Service Learning] There are a lot of ways to help and get involved in what is called service-learning, but how do you start?

It all begins with investigation. Take some time and look at the world around you. Think and act like a detective. What are some issues you care about?

    What Is A Food Chain? | The Dr. Binocs Show | Educational Videos For Kids

    Wohoo! I am no insect, Mr. Frog! Let me go. Hey there! What a lovely morning isn’t it? Well, it indeed is for me. I just got saved! Oops, this reminds me that I gotta tell you about the Food Chain in our Ecosystem. Zoom in. A food chain describes how different organisms eat each other for survival. The chain usually starts with a plant and ends with an animal. Just like how you saw the plant being eaten by a caterpillar and how it ended up in the frog’s stomach! The food chain comprises of the Producers, Consumers, and Decomposers. Plants are producers. They absorb sunlight which is readily…
