There's a lot of hype concerning all of these three technologies. Which are you most hopeful in terms of adding value in the classroom?
I think that a lot of colleges will be looking at Virtual Reality as an option for online courses in the next 5-10 years.
Do you think colleges can only adopt pro-actively VR when it's already adapted in other spheres of life? Do you think VR will take over the mobile phone basically?
I look forward to the advent of AI so that we can get a spellchecker that WORKS, i.e. that uses more than just dictionary look-up.
I can tell that all the human language processing AI at Google is helping them get better and better with the spellchecking in Chrome and Google Docs, etc. But the red squigglies that are about usage and not just dictionary look-up are still far from 100%.
My students need help. I want an AI-informed spellchecker please.
And if it can actually learn to do punctuation, even better. :-)
Question tho, choose between these two options 1) An AI-informed spellchecker that spells stuff out for students 2) An AI-informed spellchecker that actually helps students spell better?
Writing is over.
I'm willing to admit that.
We don't need to know how to spell in order to talk, right?
So in that sense we shouldn't need to know how to spell.
But we need AI that is good enough to listen to us talk and write it down.
Correctly spelled. So that the written record is reliable.
And that same imperative need for reliable transcription is also going to give us a spellchecker that actually works well if/when we write too.
