"The valley of death refers to the period after research has demonstrated the engineering feasibility of a particular innovation (a step beyond scientific feasibility) but before the innovation achieves adoption on a scale large enough to establish the viability of a
business model using that innovation"- if engineers are the ones capable of developing, researching, etc., why are they not rewarded?
While technologies continue to emerge in all areas of our lives, very few are aware of the large discrepancies that exist in education.
"Higher educational systems in the United States have evolved to prepare students to enter the workforce as a primary mission. As such, colleges and universities continually adapt the curriculum to align with employer needs (Ahmad, 2019; Cantú-Ortiz et al., 2020; St Louis et al., 2021). One need clearly identified globally, and also specifically in the
United States, is for individuals entering the workforce with greater AI knowledge and skills to meet 21st-century challenges (Buckingham Shum & Deakin Crick, 2016; Cantú-Ortiz et al., 2020; Kandlhofer et al.,2016). The NSCAI Report (2021), along with the NASEM report (2018) and the World Economic Forum (2022), all provide a consistent
mandate for modifying university curricula to meet the knowledge and skills workforce needs."
"This includes creating greater opportunities for scientists, engineers, medical professionals, and everyone who deals with data and information to understand the basics of machine learning, deep learning, and the various AI techniques that are impacting our lives. Note, we are not suggesting that every student needs to have a Ph.D. in AI or machine learning. We are, however, suggesting that there is a need for greater education across the spectrum of societal needs (Ng et al., 2021). It is particularly the
responsibility of educators – who are generally reflective practitioners to understand the ramifications of implementing AI in the educational system and to take active steps to prepare students for their roles as stakeholders and citizens in a world defined by the interaction of technologies (Zimmerman, 2018)"
How do we know when a system that used to be acceptable from a quality-level perspective is degrading? The quality levels are dropped while responsibilities are given to individuals with less knowledge. In an effort to reduce the costs, quality in healthcare is on a self-degrading path. Why is it happening? #corruptedpolicians #healthcare

It is a must-read article:
"This paper examines the transformative role of Large Language Models (LLMs) in education and their
potential as learning tools, despite their inherent risks and limitations. The authors propose seven
approaches for utilizing AI in classrooms: AI-tutor, AI-coach, AI-mentor, AI-teammate, AI-tool, AI-
simulator, and AI-student, each with distinct pedagogical benefits and risks. The aim is to help students
learn with and about AI, with practical strategies designed to mitigate risks such as complacency about
the AI's output, errors, and biases. These strategies promote active oversight, critical assessment of AI
outputs, and combination of the AI's capabilities with the students' unique insights. By challenging
students to remain the "human in the loop", the authors aim to enhance learning outcomes while
ensuring that AI serves as a supportive tool rather than a replacement. The proposed framework offers a
guide for educators navigating the integration of AI-assisted learning in classrooms."
An activity that can be completed weekly during the class or online (synchronously) is to read articles that contain at least 5 pages of information on a new topic within 10 min, and then summarize the findings. #fastreaders #educationdevelopment

" Today the Seminary is the leading Jewish academic institution in Latin America. Its mission is to help transform the world through education, the training of scholars lay and
religious leaders, educators, and the promotion of human rights and interfaith dialogue.
The Library showed its support in joining the effort toward such a noble goal, by mission, and with deep conviction."
Obviously, the Vatican understands the history of Judaism on Earth.
