While it might be easy to look at AI and consider it as simply another feature of learning technology designed to make it easier or cheaper, seeing AI for its true potential requires looking at personalized training through a completely different lens. That means understanding that each user is different. Personalized content and its presentation and accommodating personal preferences and learning styles for each of your learners (personalization “at scale”) are impossible without AI. Personalized learning involves passing some control over to learners, giving them some input into how they progress through their learning activities.

Boston Dynamics’ Handle robot recreated with Raspberry Pi

Article | August 25, 2020

You in the community seemed so impressed with this recent Boston Dynamics–inspired build that we decided to feature another. This time, maker Harry was inspired by Boston Dynamics’ research robot Handle, which stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4 feet vertically. Here’s how Harry made his miniature version, MABEL (Multi Axis Balancer Electronically Levelled). MABEL has individually articulated legs to enhance off-road stability, prevent it from tipping, and even make it jump (if you use some really fast servos). Harry is certain that anyone with a 3D printer and a “few bits” can build one.
