In this ‘APK Insight’ post, we’ve decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APKs, in the case of Android apps), we’re able to see various lines of code within that hint at possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect. We’ll try to enable those that are closer to being finished, however, to show you how they’ll look in the case that they do ship. With that in mind, read on.

A 5-Year Vision for Artificial Intelligence in Higher Ed

Article | February 26, 2020

Ramsey, who led the AI and machine learning solutions team for Google Cloud, specializes in AI-augmented education. He said that AI and its subsets, such as machine learning and deep learning, can address current challenges in education such as student retainment and teacher shortages. But the five-year outlook for AI will only be slightly different from what it is today, Ramsey said. “The capabilities will already exceed what the industry is using them for,” he said. “In other words, the technologies are way ahead of the applications, and it’ll take a while for the applications to catch up, because people don’t change overnight.”

How Machine Learning, A.I. Might Change Education

Article | March 11, 2020

Artificial intelligence (A.I) technologies such as computer vision and machine learning are providing new ways to revolutionize learning and skills training at universities. From doctorate degrees in machine learning (ML) to bots that aid the work of teachers, there’s accelerating interest at the college level in A.I. and ML. Research firm TechNavio projects that the A.I. market in education will grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of close to 48 percent from 2018 to 2022 (the study also noted the role of chatbots in enhancing learning—hopefully that technology pans out better for education than it did for most of the business world).
