Study points to link between schizophrenia and vascular alterations in the brain

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, neuroscience

A study conducted in Brazil and reported in an article published in Molecular Psychiatry suggests that schizophrenia may be associated with alterations in the vascularization of certain brain regions. Researchers at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), D’Or Research and Education Institute (IDOR) and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) found a link between astrocytes (central nervous system cells) from patients with schizophrenia and formation of narrow blood vessels.

Schizophrenia is a severe multifactorial mental health disorder affecting around 1% of the world population. Common symptoms include loss of contact with reality (psychosis), hallucinations (hearing voices, for example), delusions or delirium, disorganized motor behavior, loss of motivation and cognitive impairment.

In the study, the researchers focused on the role of astrocytes in development of the disease. These glial cells are housekeepers of the central nervous system and important to its defense. They are the central elements of the neurovascular units that integrate neural circuitry with local blood flow and provide neurons with metabolic support.

ChatGPT Is a Mirror of Our Times

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, information science, robotics/AI

Computers and information technologies were once hailed as a revolution in education. Their benefits are undeniable. They can provide students with far more information than a mere textbook. They can make educational resources more flexible, tailored to individual needs, and they can render interactions between students, parents, and teachers fast and convenient. And what would schools have done during the pandemic lockdowns without video conferencing?

The advent of AI chatbots and large language models such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT, launched last November, create even more new opportunities. They can give students practice questions and answers as well as feedback, and assess their work, lightening the load on teachers. Their interactive nature is more motivating to students than the imprecise and often confusing information dumps elicited by Google searches, and they can address specific questions.

The algorithm has no sense that “love” and “embrace” are semantically related.

Meet the Mexican girl with an IQ higher than Einstein’s

Posted by in categories: education, neuroscience

Mexico City.- At just eight years old, Adhara Perez is the girl who exceeded the IQ of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking with 162. She dreams of being an astronaut one day, but she came to think that this would be impossible.

When she was three years old, the little girl from the slums of Tlahuac, in Mexico City, was diagnosed with Asperger (autism spectrum). “I made a mockery at school”, she said.

Her classmates called her “weird” and the teachers came to think that she would not have much future in the academy. Nallely Sanchez, mother of the child, did not realize the situation and did not want her daughter to suffer.

AI in Education: The Good, the Bad, and the Downright Confusing

Posted by in categories: education, mapping, robotics/AI

Words by pau aleikum & marta handenawer.

This article started as a discussion between friends, sparked by the release of ChatGPT last December. Instantly, our minds were racing with the massive amount of tremendously stupid and not-so-stupid applications it could have for our work at Domestic Data Streamers. It is clear that AI is a valuable tool you could use to finish assignments more quickly, but what would be lost in that process? Using ChatGPT feels like cheating; using a shortcut to finish your work, it’s so easy that it can feel as if you are not working at all. This obviously comes with a cost. If you don’t write those words, you are less likely to remember them and less likely to internalize knowledge or connect it to other fields of knowledge you already have. And that, friends, is a problem for education. The Atlantic recently declared that “The College Essay Is Dead,” and although I disagree, this calls for further exploration.

The use of ChatGPT to write academic projects has been a source of significant concern in academia. Three of the four universities we work with have already sent out emails asking that teachers acknowledge the existence of this technology and prepare for it. This is the next phase in our journey from manual calculation to technology-aided information recall, just as we evolved from adding up numbers in our minds to calculators and from basic orientation to Google Maps.

Teenager Solves Stubborn Riddle About Prime Number Look-Alikes

Still, Larsen’s most recent obsession felt different, “longer and more intense than most of his other projects,” she said. For more than a year and a half, Larsen couldn’t stop thinking about a certain math problem.

Then, in November 2021, Granville opened up an email from Larsen, then 17 years old and in his senior year of high school. A paper was attached — and to Granville’s surprise, it looked correct. “It wasn’t the easiest read ever,” he said. “But when I read it, it was quite clear that he wasn’t messing around. He had brilliant ideas.”

Pomerance, who read a later version of the work, agreed. “His proof is really quite advanced,” he said. “It would be a paper that any mathematician would be really proud to have written. And here’s a high school kid writing it.”

It’s Happening Now But People Don’t See It — Terence McKenna on AI Prediction

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, robotics/AI

I made this video with the help of Artificial Intelligence to prove the point Terence McKenna makes in this video that AI will surpass the human production in all the levels.

What did AI tools make?
- Tuning the audio quality to make it look like a podcast record, even though the audio was recorded with a low quality hand microphone in a party in 1998.
- Creating a realistic HD picture of Terence McKenna and tuning the color level, with background.

Can an Artificial Intelligence Write Better Than a Human?

Posted by in categories: education, robotics/AI

OpenAI is the developer of a new AI program called ChatGPT, capable of writing and conversing very much like a human.

On the first task, the general impression from teachers was that at best it provided a framework but not the details for lesson planning. The same was said about the letter-writing capabilities of the tool, and the composing of a rubric. On providing feedback on student work, the response was less than impressed with the comments and grading. And on writing a letter of recommendation, the comments stated that what ChatGPT came up with was “far too generic.” So all in all, the current version of ChatGPT as a teaching aid seems underwhelming.
