good to see entrepreneurial revolution live and well among valley women

Twin revolutions at the start of the 21st century are shaking up the very idea of what it means to be human. Computer vision and image recognition are at the heart of the AI revolution. And CRISPR is a powerful new technique for genetic editing that allows humans to intervene in evolution.

Jennifer Doudna and Fei-Fei Li, pioneering scientists in the fields of gene editing and artificial intelligence, respectively, will be on stage discussing the ethics of scientific discovery.

Doudna, a professor of chemistry and molecular and cell biology at U.C. Berkeley, rocked the research world in 2012 when she and her colleagues announced the invention of CRISPR-Cas9, a technology that uses an RNA-guided protein found in bacteria to edit an organism's DNA quickly and inexpensively. Li is a professor of computer science at Stanford and co-director of the university's Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI). She served as director of Stanford’s AI Lab from 2013 to 2018, and during her sabbatical, she was Vice President at Google and served as Chief Scientist of AI/ML at Google Cloud. Li joined Stanford's faculty in 2009, and her main research areas are in machine learning, deep learning, computer vision and cognitive and computational neuroscience. She invented ImageNet and the ImageNet Challenge, a critical large-scale dataset and benchmarking effort that has contributed to the latest developments in deep learning and AI.

Moderating the discussion will be Russ Altman, the Kenneth Fong Professor of Bioengineering, Genetics, Medicine, Biomedical Data Science and (by courtesy) Computer Science at Stanford. He is the past chairman of the Bioengineering Department at Stanford University. His primary research interests are in the application of computing and informatics technologies to problems relevant to medicine. He hosts the Stanford Engineering program The Future of Everything.

2012 coming soon lot more oneducation

over 33 yeras we have debated education (livelihoods everyone as lifelong tecaher and learner) is pivotal to himan sustaonability - see also why adma smith clarified that western university education was never designed with youth as the custmer abd likely to be disatrous in times when much of the mlost valuable elarnking was new every few years as is the case as oiur mobile age accelerayes

when it comes to the un - the main education forum seem to be taaken ofver by the educaation system as normal- unesco is responsible foir gopal 4 reports that dont do the boxless kind of thinking thhjat the new head of unhabitat does in her filed

when gordon brown un envvoyfor education formed 30 national leaders of education commision only two led by jack m were concerend with changing tghe shytsm taking it outside teh calssroorm- the main group are concerend with more finds and another group try to match poor systems with better systems across analgous nations

jack ma soon found unctad more relevany- he is retaring hundreds of coders scouted by unctad and becoming alumni of his global bsuiess school - see also www.worldrecordjobs.com for more initaives jack does with the un concerened with putting youth in meiddle of what is innovated

jack ma has also said that hios ecooerce platforks while fine fir sme deskign of finance and of thisgs bought and sold- are noi the main pkatfirm fir happiness socail scetirs includinh educaytion health, arts and other community participation celebrations- he will focus on tehese from 2020 on with his olympics platform

some of the un eminent committes afre most concerned with education - others with new development banking
the unai (hsts about) 8 special interst groups in education which it also calls hibs- qatar which hosts wise also hose the unai refugee elarning hub- amma in india is assigned nanotechnolkgy research for the poor by world elading nanotech experts interest in including poverty in their compass

with guterres the head of in since start of 2-016 (the sdg era) - coming from lifetime serving refugees - elearning revolutions offer hope to refugees that classical system cant- the 2015 varkey million dolar teacher prize summit in duba hosted lot of outside system people

the worlds only model of community livelihood education kis brac - the summit oct 1-5 2018 will be fjurst chnace for academkics associated with jack ma and vrac to explore each lothers futures- brac was the inaugiral education lajureate at wise but the 2nd through 6th laureates have been within system people -however these profiles show that wise delegates from china in partiocula see edutech as innovation outside the system

one way to open up education youth eed is to look for mssing curricula and then cklatifu how best yo provide them

4 languagres (chinese englist mother tongue coding) need to be 10 times cheaper and this will come mainly freom peer to peer blended on;ine not classroom appriaches

financial ebtreprebeurial and open spoace literacies come from expereintial spaces not examination classrooms as do so many community microfrancjsies neeeding repliocation if youth livelihhods and being tyhe sustainability generation are to be matcjed
seeing bri as a curriculium of is our nation equkitably linked into the world suoerports and continent wkide gruds is also an example of a local to global cutrriu=iculum which needs quizes and maps shared across natin classrooms

the arctic crircles 8 nations are fantastic space for changing education - eg many schools are in remore places across north rissuis, niry canada alaska greenland idcelan- studnets are demanding tools such as augmented reality gooles so tey can experience coming to school as if they were in each others communities- watch the agedas of how innovation of education is being celebrated by youth of the 8 artci circle countreis

why mit would be norman macraes' and ER's fav spot to linkin 2013

some notes on what we love about visiting mit and student competitions are here: 1
other notes on a tour of mit norman macrae would love

as you likely know mit includes

berners lee and the web is for everyone

media lab, which began with $100 laptop is for every chilld but which now also experiments with the mobile is for every child and poorest village to transform value chains

start of massive online open curriculum

most prolific student competition space on the planet

world's number 1 job creating alumni network

dubai's most exciting youth entrepreneur research hub - legatum ...

rest of this section carries posts mainly sent to mit student networks especuially those due to linkin worldwide crowdfund searches of 2013 or student competition entries

as student crowdfund team mentioned they may be including Myanmar in their search , I thought you might be interested in attached attendee list: usaid circulation on launch of educational programs to myanmar

my family's life histories connect with myanmar and bangladesh as dads first job as a teenager was navigating raf planes in the region in world war 2 but while I have spent a lot of last 5 years understanding who's who in bangladesh - have never been to myanmar- sir fazle abed who won the first wise oscars of education -and my dad's friends at Japan Embassy in Dhaka - may call for a one day brainstorm on how to MOOC everything to do with bottom-up investment and youth collaboration models in march as phase 1 of calling for microeducationsummit (technology, education and credit) to converge post 2105 millennium goals summiting

back on myanmar- usaid appeared to say to 500 delegates Wash Dc Dec 2012 that they will mainly support a hybrid model of 4 partners - university and corporation both usa and in myanmar -this would seem to make it difficult to crowdfund myanmar unless a university in usa sets up a friendly space so that project by project the other 3: us corporate myanmar corporate, myanmar uni can be searched

another slight frustration of mine is that in dc region I am linking together several people and embassies studying how to turn orphanages into regional job creating hubs- i would have thought that myanmar might want to join in studying that model but usaid-process is making that quite hard for an individual like me to issue invitation

naila chowdhury and shafqat ullah are 2 people who guide me through what open technology can do out of bangladesh
-naila currently lives in dc region after serving grameenphone and ceo yunus technology for a long time-she and I are judges at next week's 4 yunus statewide student entrepreneur compettiion in alabama which also aims to startup the yunus university of ending poverty

shafqat links bangladeshi wizard technologists and is talking with brilliant/skoll on how ILABS can be extended across region given start made in Cambodia

apologies if too many choices mapped above - trying editorially to get both yunus and abed family members to open up all their knowledge in moocs in under one quarter is likely to mean that young people need to choose where they want to linkin and massively collaborate

there are also some fascinating green energy collaborations being written up for moocworld- i recall that when melissa launched social valuation student networking across region 4 years ago, a nobel laureate from uni of maryland declared inteerest in reconciling a green marshall plan- maryland also has some brilliant chinese students concerned with bottom up green energy networking as I found out at a recent brookings meeting on subject; the sainsbury supermarket philanthropy are a family friend back in london- with prince charles they run microenergy awards at which needs to be turned into a mooc in my opinion - journalisticly, not too hard for them to do as their family are also major shareholders in The Economist; also interesting is that one of the 2 retiring student ceos of mit100k is passionate about green while the other is being headhunted by samsung out of south korea' and the theme of the yunus prize at mit this year is education
-as geo-serendipity would have it the other norman macrae in my family tree started life as a missionary in korea
