According to McKinsey's research deep learning techniques such as feed forward neural networks, recurrent neural networks, and convolutional neural networks account for about 40% of the annual value potentially created by all analytics techniques. They estimate that these specific pieces of technology alone can create between $3.5 trillion and $5.8 trillion in value annually.Read More
This global survey with over 3,000 managers and 30 in-depth interviews reveals that 85% of executives believe artificial intelligence will enable their companies to obtain or sustain a competitive advantage. Unfortunately, less than 39% have an artificial intelligence strategy in place and only one in twenty have extensively incorporated the technology.Read More
This PwC study predicts that as much as 38% of jobs in the United States will lost to automation by the 2030s. In order for American workers to mitigate the coming disruption, they must receive more higher education and improve their performance scores.
The United States school system ranks low among developed nations: #39 in math, #24 in science, and #24 in reading. How will the United States compete globally for the jobs of the future?Read More
According to this four year study at Harvard and MIT, only 16% of the students intending to complete an online course actually do so. Despite being easily accessible and affordable, the rise of online courses and resources has not solved low educational achievement scores.Read More
Deloitte estimates that 50% of today's jobs worldwide will be serviced by artificial intelligence in 2050. Those jobs eliminated are more likely to be low-skilled labor and even white collar professions (i.e. accounting, law, financial advisors).Read More
In this study, students being lectured are 1.5x more likely to fail than students in classes with more stimulating, active learning methods. Conventional classrooms, however, continue to be driven by the lecture method because one-to-one instruction has been too expensive. Instructors do not have the time or resources to personalize every lesson or drill deep into topics where each student is struggling.
Benjamin Bloom empirically proved the achievement benefits of one-to-one instruction over the conventional classroom in 1984. 90% of students receiving one-to-one instruction tested in the 20% of student who learned in conventional classroom settings. Calling it the "Two Sigma Problem," he lamented that "most students do have the ability to reach this high level of learning" but that individualized instruction is "too costly for most societies to bear."Read More
