Undergraduate Philosophy Journal of Australasia

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Undergraduate Philosophy Journal of Australasia
This link is to the first issue of the Undergraduate Philosophy Journal of Australasia. I like not only that it is open access, but also that it is by and for undergraduate students. Now I have my criticisms of journals and that whole practice, but I also think it's really important for students to engage in the actual practices of a profession (for better or worse) as they learn about it.

'Smile with your eyes': How to beat South Korea's AI hiring bots and land a job

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. 'Smile with your eyes': How to beat South Korea's AI hiring bots and land a job
Sangmi Cha, Reuters, 2020/01/15
CNN has picked up on a line of thought brought up in this Reuters story from  a few days ago. The gist, in a nutshell, is that job interviews are being evaluated, at least in part, by artificial intelligence systems. The Reuters story focuses on the use of AI in Korea. "According to Korea Economic Research Institute (KERI), nearly a quarter of the top 131 corporations in the country currently use or plan to use AI in hiring." The CNN article highlights US-based companies like HireView, Yobs and Talview. What's significant is that they're not testing for knowledge. More...

EdNA is launching a new social software service on December 15. "Everyone who is a current edna registered user will automatically have a myedna profile and space which will provide significant benefits for edna members." If you are an EdNA member you can go to the preview and try it out. It works well, though I miss the Facebook apps (especially Scrabble) and I don't really like the conflation of personal interests with communities. More...

Will This be the Decade of Asian Higher Education?

There is also a significant trend for Asian countries to become centres of inward and outward international mobility. China and India are both attracting large numbers of students from Africa, often with the support of generous scholarships. Southeast Asia is also poised to become a major hub with the help of policies promoting student mobility and international collaboration. More...

Silliness About Asian Higher Education

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "hepi"For the last decade or so, “the rise of Asia” has been a common refrain.  It alludes to the region’s economic rise (which is undeniable) but then goes on to equate the region’s higher education offerings with this economic rise, usually in a way that poses a threat to “western” higher education.  The most recent example came in this week’s edition of University World News and an op-ed entitled Will the 2020s See Asia Pull Ahead in Higher Education?
As these stories go, it’s pretty-run-of-the-mill and largely inaccurate. More...

Photo in the News: See-Through Frog Bred in Japan

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Photo in the News: See-Through Frog Bred in Japan
A little off topic, but this is the most amazing (also the oddest) thing I've seen in a while. The see-through frog, of course, doesn't have to be dissected. But it does, I think, redefine 'nakedness', raising it to a whole new level. What happens when people can turn their skin off and on? Or when parents can opt for see-through babies? Is it OK to let someone see your lungs, but not your kidneys. More...
