Another dot in the blogosphere?

Moving pictures

Yesterday I noted how AI might be employed to improve home-based learning in Singapore. This was announced by our Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Mr Heng Swee Kiat, at a budget speech in parliament.

Today I wonder if we will apply what YouTube already does well. As it monitors what I watch, it serves up other videos. As a result, I watched a National Geographic series of Nobel Prize documentaries. Here is what I thought were the best of the five.

The first was about a former teacher who lost a leg due to the civil war in Sudan. He now makes artificial limbs and the documentary followed the journey of a young mother who also had a leg amputated. It was a story of hope.

The second was about the women who lead the charge to locate and destroy improvised mines and other explosive devices left in the wake of ISIS occupation and destruction. It was a story of resilience.

The third was about a Rohingya man who helped reunite lost children with their parents in a refugee camp in Bangladesh. It was a story of compassion.

They don’t call videos moving pictures for nothing! And the higher level of analytics that suggested it is predictive and prescriptive, not just descriptive and diagnostic.
