[Funding] Village Capital Education US 2018 Program: Bridging the Skills Gap (Deadline: Friday, May 11)

We are looking for new innovative ideas that transform teaching or school leadership to better prepare children with the 21st century skills they need to succeed in the future.
We are looking for new ideas that may just be in an ideation stage or may have been tested in a small scale already, but require up to US$100,000 to demonstrate their theory of change and potential for impact. Proposals that are selected to receive an initial funding of US$100,000 and go on to demonstrate success will receive further funding to scale up and impact lives across the world.

Hexagons! And other reasons to love math

“The most complex AI and the ”“new hype”“ is Deep Learning (DL): artificial neuronal networks with non-supervised algorithms that can learn from observation of huge amounts of data. This is how AlphaGo became the world best GO player in hours with just the rules of the game.
If we apply DL to education, we would be able to:
- provide automatic answers to questions that need some context to be understood.
- optimize pedagogic activities
- auto-generate exercises
- improve the analysis of the knowledge before and after training/education
- improve the recommendations for learning itineraries in order to develop competencies”
