    7. How ChatGPT Is Changing Education – Guidance From UNESCO And OpenAI 

    ChatGPT Is Changing Education

    Sep 29: UNESCO, The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, released their first Guidance on Generative AI for Education. This document covers several areas

    UNESCO’s Key Guidance for Generative AI

    • A basic definition of Generative AI and some historical context – particularly regarding the origins of ChatGPT as a progression of several models leveraging the foundational Transformer technology.
    • Concerns about Generative AI in education – from shorter-term concerns such as cheating to longer-term concerns such as further expansion of the digital divide (where countries with less ability to develop such models or feed them with massive datasets will find themselves further marginalized) and whether these models will try to usurp human roles and replace human creativity.
    • Pointing out that regulation is already behind these developments (ChatGPT reached 100 million users in Jan 2023 while, as of July 2023, only one nation has released regulations to address the topic). Given the expectation that regulation will realistically always be outpaced by technology development in this space – the document outlines several coping strategies, from monitoring to education.
    • The need to educate students and teachers on both how these AIs work as well as how these AIs can be leveraged to improve education. The need to create EdGPT – a series of foundational models focused on assisting education.

    Image Source: Newswise 

    On 23Aug Scientists have created a special computer program called AtomAI. It’s good at looking at pictures taken with powerful microscopes. AtomAI uses something called “deep learning,” which is a type of computer smarts that helps it understand what’s in a picture or some writing. Deep learning is like teaching the program to figure things out by itself. It does this by using layers of artificial brain cells, kind of like the ones in our heads. These brain cells learn how to spot different parts of a picture, from simple to more complex details. Because of this, AtomAI is even better at this job than regular computer learning, and it can understand a wider range of things in the pictures.
