The pandemic has mounted new obstacles to building inclusive and prosperous economies and societies around the world. This is evident in every sector of our community and particularly in K12 education. Pre-existing gender gaps have amplified the crisis asymmetrically between men and women, even as women have been at the frontlines of handling the problem as essential workers. According to the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) new report, the hardest-hit areas by lockdowns are rapid digitalization and those where women are more frequently employed. …

What is AGI? AGI stands for Artificial General Intelligence. Some people refer to it as “Strong AI” to differentiate it from “Weak AI”. Many people say that we are still decades away from achieving AGI, while some of us are still arguing what it means to be intelligent.

AGI requires a machine or intelligent agent to be capable of understanding or learning any intellectual task that a human being can. If we have a powerful enough machine that could access all the existing knowledge of all human beings, does that make the machine an AGI? Will the machine then acquire consciousness and self-awareness?

When I was growing up in the 80s and 90s, I learned about Finland (the small Nordic country) as the home of Nokia, the mobile phone maker. I’m still in love with Nokia 3360. But lately, Finland is getting attention in different areas; an excellent education system and perhaps the happiest nation on earth. And not because of Nokia!

For the 4th year in a row, Finland topped a list of countries evaluated as the happiest country in the world. In my work at ReadyAI, I have interacted with Finns. …

Today we are witnessing a radical proliferation of deep fakes — online imagery that can get anybody to appear to do or say anything within the boundaries of one’s imagination, cruelty, or cunning — has started to weaken faith in our ability to perceive reality and truth.

What is deepfake?

I believe wholeheartedly in picture books. I don’t think kids or adults outgrow picture books. I hear my friends, who are parents, frequently say with a level of enjoyment and pride: “My kid is now reading independently and no longer needs the crutch of pictures. “

Although I appreciate the parent’s pride, when I hear this, I think to myself, “poor child, and poor mom and dad.” NOBODY moves on from picture books. Nobody should.

AI learning can continue offline with picture books — parents approve!

While the literary world regularly ignores children’s books as…

As the US Senator from TX — Ted Cruz’s report of leaving for Cancun, dominated the headlines, I had a Zoom call with Becky — an elementary school teacher near Dallas, Texas. We casually chatted about the extreme weather in Texas and Senator Cruz’s decision to take a short vacation while his state suffered a significant climate crisis. Becky, with anxiety, said: “Rooz, I’m not interested in the politics of climate change; I’m interested in tackling climate change through education and my classroom. Can ReadyAI help?” I replied: “Yes, I mean. No. What I want to say…

In the past 14 months, COVID-19 has left a mark on countless lives worldwide — disrupting work, schools, travel, health, and well being of billions.
