Successful AI and OER hackathon using the X5GON platform

We are proud of our final hackathon at the British Embassy in Paris using the X5GON platform to make OER based education more accessible everywhere. We would like to thank our great colleagues without whom this hackathon couldn’t have happened Sahan Bulathwela, John Shawe-Taylor, Colin de la Higuera, Davor Orlic, Kristijan Perčič and colleagues from UCLIC Sheena Visram and UCL Computer Science Dr Dean Mohamedally and of course all the Osnabruck, Nantes, UCL and JSI students competing.

AI for the Common Good: F’AI’R Education Hackathon

K4A is facilitating a  hackathon supported by the UK Science and Innovation Network at the British Embassy in Paris, the United Nations ANCSSC, and H2020 project X5GON to allow students at several international universities to take part in an early requirements capture process, leading to design and build stage to develop a working prototype that supports Open Education with AI. Join us in this endeavor and see here for more details.

Public consultation on new United Nations center in Artificial Intelligence

The Slovenian Ministry of Education, Science and Sport held a meeting on 25 October, to discuss the setting up and role of the International Research Center for Artificial Intelligence under the auspices of UNESCO. The purpose of the Center will be to provide an open and transparent environment that, in addition to research, technology and discussions in the field of artificial intelligence, will provide stakeholders worldwide with public-policy support in the preparation of artificial intelligence orientations and action plans. K4A has played a key role in the founding of the center.
