Microsoft deploys AI in the classroom to improve public speaking and math

Posted by in categories: education, employment, mathematics, robotics/AI

Microsoft announced new AI-powered classroom tools today. The company sees its new “Learning Accelerators” as helping students sharpen their speaking and math skills — while making teachers’ jobs a little easier — as children prepare for an even more technologically enhanced world.

Speaker Progress is a new AI classroom tool for teachers. Microsoft says it saves them time by “streamlining the process of creating, reviewing, and analyzing speaking and presentation assignments for students, groups, and classrooms.” It can provide tidy summaries of presentation-based skills while highlighting areas to improve. Additionally, it lets teachers review student recordings, identify their needs and track progress.

It will be a companion for Speaker Coach, an existing feature Microsoft launched in 2021 that provides one-on-one speaking guidance and feedback. For example, it uses AI to give real-time pointers on pacing, pitch and filler words. “Speaker Coach is one of those tools that kind of was a lightbulb tool for a lot of students that I’ve worked with,” said an unnamed teacher in a Microsoft launch video. “Being able to practice and get real-time feedback is where Speaker Coach really comes in and helps our students, and it even helps us as adults.”

Microsoft CEO says AI will create more jobs

Posted by in categories: employment, robotics/AI

Microsoft has unveiled an advanced version of its search engine Bing — complete with ChatGPT-like technology that can answer complex questions and help users make decisions.

“We are basically taking the next generation of the model — that today powers ChatGPT — and building it in right into Bing,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told “CBS Mornings” co-host Tony Dokoupil before Tuesday’s announcement.

Microsoft has been pouring billions into artificial intelligence. Last month, the company announced it is making a “multiyear, multibillion-dollar investment” in OpenAI, the AI research company behind ChatGPT — positioning Microsoft to sharpen its competition with Google in commercializing new AI breakthroughs.

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, economics, employment, internet, robotics/AI

Basically I underestimated chat gpt it is Basically much more powerful than I realized not just a Jetson society but it could even bring realities like we have seen in star trek the next generation where one can ask an AI anything and it can do anything given a task.
