Meet the algorithm that can learn “everything about anything” The most recent advances in artificial intelligence research are pretty staggering, thanks in part to the abundance of data available on the web. We’ve covered how deep learning is helping create self-teaching and highly accurate systems for tasks such as sentiment analysis and facial recognition, but there are also models that can solve geometry and algebra problems, predict whether a stack of dishes is likely to fall over and (from the team behind Google’s word2vec) understand entire paragraphs of text. (Hat tip to frequent commenter Oneasum for pointing out all these projects.) One of the more interesting projects is a system called LEVAN, which is short for Learn EVerything about ANything and was created by a group of researchers out of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence and the University of Washington. One of them, Carlos Guestrin, is also co-founder and CEO of a data science startup called GraphLab.
English songs for ESL kids english songs for kids Kids love songs! Singing traditional kids' songs can be a great and fantastic way to teach English to young learners. With the help of amusing, easy to remember songs they learn new words, expressions and pronunciation quickly, and have fun at the same time. Paint a Handprint Mermaid Create a mermaid using your hands, fingers and paint! Full handprints create beautiful flowing hair, while individual fingerprint patterns create a shimmery body. This underwater painting is as colorful as it is fun! Google preps wave of machine learning apps High performance access to file storage Google is preparing to unleash a wave of apps that get intelligence from its mammoth machine learning models. The apps will all rely on the neural networks Google has been developing internally to allow its systems to automatically classify information that has traditionally been tough for computers to parse. This includes human speech or unlabeled images, said Jeffrey Dean a fellow in Google's Systems Infrastructure Group who helped create MapReduce and GFS, to the GigaOm Structure in San Francisco on Wednesday. "I've been working on a machine learning system for the last couple of years that is using biologically inspired neural networks," Dean said. "These kinds of models are very useful in a whole bunch of different domains."
Unit 20 Level 3 (Upper Intermediate- Advanced): Mixed conditionals Besides the four types of conditional sentences you already know (first, second, third and zero), there is a fifth type which is used when the time in the "if" clause is not the same as the time in the main clause. These are called “mixed conditionals”, as they combine two different types of conditional patterns. 1) Watch this video to learn how second and third conditionals can be used together by mixing and matching the “if” and main clauses, thus forming a mixed conditional. 2) Let’s check some of the most important facts about this type of conditionals here and here. Pay attention to these examples.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Starts To Write The Very Hungry Caterpillar is full of useful vocabulary for children – days of the week, food names, numbers… Children can use this vocabulary to create their own stories – for instance, “What I ate this week” (“On Monday, I ate fried rice. On Tuesday, I ate chicken.”), making it nice and personal to them. But to begin with, they can trace over the words, fill in gaps, or repeat phrases in mini books, allowing them to become more familiar with the vocabulary before they produce it themselves. Mini book instructions here. Watercolour and Oil Pastel Resist Snowflake - Arty Crafty Kids I adore this watercolour and oil pastel resist snowflake. Isn’t it gorgeous? Oil pastels have become one of my favourite materials for resist art. For one, it takes a mere few minutes to set up. So if you have young children with short attention spans, then this process is perfect for them!

What are adverbs? What Is an Adverb? An adverb can be added to a verb to modify its meaning. Usually, an adverb tells you when, where, how, in what manner, or to what extent an action is performed.
