Study shows improvement in students' attitudes and test scores after teachers change their own mindset — and instruction — around math.
Lukasz Kidziński hit on the idea of a competition, in which teams from around the world would compete to design artificial intelligence algorithms that would, along with virtual bodies informed by Scott Delp’s data and models, learn to walk, run and eventually navigate obstacles.
Researchers Marinka Zitnik, PhD; Monica Agrawal; and Jure Leskovec, PhD, have designed a new system to deal with the literally billions of possibilities when considering any two drugs — out of about 5,000 on the U.S. market — and one of around a thousand different side effects.
