Beyond Machine Learning: Capturing Cause-and-Effect Relationships

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Deep learning is a powerful statistical technique for classifying patterns using large training data sets and multi-layer AI neural networks. Machine learning is a statistical modelling technique, like data mining and business analytics , which finds and correlates patterns between inputs and outputs without necessarily capturing their cause-and-effect relationships. Why are there such universal human activity patterns?

Artificial Intelligence for Good: A Few Good Articles To Read #AI4Good

” He is reminding of us of shiny object syndrome and to be skeptical of technology in search of solutions. I shared a few more examples of AI-driven fundraising here ) 3) Campaign Content: Examples of nonprofits using Quilt.AI , which takes every organization’s digital imprint and lets a nonprofit to better understand data patterns in large amount of data to predict changes in human behavior.

Will Artificial Intelligence Augment Nonprofit Staff or Replace?

Beth Kanter

If AI can do the boring grunt work for a nonprofit human, use that free time on building relationships,identifying innovation solutions, and scaling services. First, the AI assistant develops and applies algorithms to ingest, clean, enrich and then searches through large amounts of data in order to recognize patterns and make recommendations.

billion in 2019; YouTube grew from 20 million users in 2006 to around 2 billion in 2019; and WhatsApp from 300 million users in 2013 to also around 2 billion.

Philgorithms: Two Examples of Data Mapping to Guide Donor Decisions

Beth Kanter

As COVID accelerates innovative uses of AI in many areas, we are also seeing more development of AI-powered data mapping tools for philanthropic advising and to support donor investment decisions. Before the pandemic, Rhodri Davies, head of policy at Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), authored the 2019 white paper, “ Machine Made Goods: Charities, Philanthropy, and Artificial Intelligence ,” describing the opportunities. “If AI4Giving Innovation Philanthropy

Educational Research in Learning Technology

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Decades of technological innovation in education have shown precious little in the way of educational gains and, more than anything else, have taught us that we need to be sceptical from the outset. Unfortunately, ‘the vast array of literature involving learning technology evaluation makes it challenging to acquire an accurate sense of the different aspects of learning that are evaluated, and the possible approaches that can be used to evaluate them’ (Lai & Bower, 2019).

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

2019) Ethical Codes As Standards of Conduct While ethics commonly applies to people in general, there is a specific class of ethics that applies to people by virtue of their membership in a professional group. Modern analytics is based mostly in machine learning and neural networks, and these in turn provide algorithms for pattern recognition, regression, and clustering. 2019) Similar functionality is also provided by IMS Global’s Caliper learning analytics (Oakleaf, et.al.,
