This Week in Tech

Extra Lessons - For GAMING!

It seems like the days of parents and teachers telling kids to stop wasting their time playing computer games might really be at an end. If you've been reading along with previous blog entries you will have noted that e-sports tournaments have huge money prizes and are being considered for the olympics. Not only that, people are earning incomes from sponsorship as top gamers (just like top sportsmen do) - and from streaming their gameplay on services such as Twitch (where they earn money from advertising). The inevitable has finally happened. Parents are paying for their kids to get extra lessons - for Fortnite! Expect to see more of this....

MACHINE LEARNING made easy for your classroom + WiFi X-Ray vision + Cellular data @ R50 / Gb

Rain is out of beta and offering flat rate cellular data @ R50 / Gb (no contract, no bundles, only pay for what you use at the end of the month)

Machine learning is a complex topic - difficult to illustrate and explain. What if there was an easy way for your learners to do some machine learning programming for themselves? In Scratch? Using the power of IBM's Watson supercomputer? All online without having to install software? Check out the AI section below for a really exciting and amazing tool....

Light. Radio. X-Rays. Gamma Rays. Infra-red. Ultra-violet. Microwaves. These are all essentially part of the same range of physical phenomena - the Electromagnetic Spectrum. If our eyes had evolved differently we might be able to see radio waves. Maybe there are aliens out there who can actually do this. Thinking outside the box, MIT researchers have tried using radio waves like a less lethal for of X-Rays. They can use the fact that your body interferes with the radio waves sent out by your WiFi router and use that to track your movements - even through walls.

Motherboard has the details.
