My 1st Machine learning lecture for kids

I have held my 1st lecture about cognitive bots and machine learning for 12-16 year old children – it was a blast!

Followed up with a programming workshop (in Scratch and Python).

The content was:

  • Part 1:
    • What is learning.
    • Why we learn.
    • How our body learns (uncouncios).
  • Part 2:
    • The robots are coming.
    • Where is the danger.
    • How to survive them.
  • Part 3:
    • Taxonomy of robot intelligence.
    • A look under the hood of 3 homemade chat bots.
    • Chat bots on social media (The good, the bad and the ugly)

How to Bake an Agile Cake?

How to bake an agile cake

Imagine you want to make a cake – You find a recipe for a delicious chocolate cake.
The recipe describes a process, which is a linear system to predict and therefore control the output.

A process or a linear system requires the environment (like an oven) to be deterministic (read: non-changeable), for the process to remain predictable.
If your oven warms 10°C more, than the oven the recipe was made with, then your cake will get burned unless you compensate for the 10°C.

The environment in IT is constantly changing with large amounts of simultaneous changes, and therefore the environment can’t be deterministic –  No wonder processes are hard to maintain.
