Transforming Education with A.I. and new technologies

Written on April 23, 2019 by Campus Life in Professional

Last week, in collaboration with the IE School of Human sciences and Technology and the IE business school, the AI club organised a visit to the WoW room of IE university. Launched in October 2016, the WoW room (Window on the World room) is a virtual classroom comprised of a 45 square meter video wall made up of 48 monitors arranged in a U-shape. This lecture theater simulates a face-to-face classroom environment, seamlessly allowing all students to interact with each other as if they were sitting in a real classroom.

The WoW Room takes IE’s commitment to technology immersion in learning environments to the next level. It provides students with a unique and highly-immersive virtual classroom experience that uses artificial intelligence, real time simulations and analytics, big data analysis, and interactive robots to provide both the students and professors (either a hologram or physically present) with a highly enriched learning experience. It can even run algorithms that recognize patterns in facial expressions to assess understanding and identify students’ emotional state and levels of attention. You can also have a look at a demo video of the WoW room by clicking on this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHNlFGNrA9w .

“The great thing about a virtual classroom is that your students are already in a digital format, which means you can run algorithms that recognize patterns in facial expressions to assess understanding and identify students’ emotional state and levels of attention in your class.” Professor Martin Boehm, dean of IE .

After the visit to the WoW room, a live demo of the new VR (Virtual Reality) center was presented to our student. The VR space is a place specially put in place for the students of IE University. It is located in Maria de Molina 4, 2nd floor and can be booked online. The VR space is designed for our student to experience Virtual reality through different applications. If you are studying at IE, make sure you check this place out.

This event allowed students to visit these special and innovative places while discovering the new dimensions of future online education as well as how AI and new technologies disrupt this industry.

Thanks to IE university for providing the demo to the IE AI Club!

Our speaker was Professor Jesus Prada an expert in Machine Learning -Sigesa and holds many credentials under his name such as Professor -IE School of Human Science & Technology, Teacher at DevAcademy, Freelance Data Scientist -Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Machine Learning Engineer, Madrid-MIT M+Vision Consortium and many more)

Professor Jesus Prada walked the audience through the fundamentals of Machine Learning, the importance of aspiring data scientist to be well-rounded & balance in computer science, business knowledge and Statistic and mathematics. He further presented on Data sources, Pre-processing data, Algorithm parameters, Machine Learning models analyses and Evaluation Metrics.

The audience remained engaged throughout the presentation & fascinated by such rich knowledge.

Jesus Prada further elaborated on a very important concept in Machine learning ‘Accuracy Vs Interpretability trade-off’
“In Machine Learning, the most accurate models tend to be the most complex ones, for this reason, best models are usually the less interpretable ones”

This event was indeed enriching and captivating. Stay tuned with the AI Club for our upcoming events!

Last Tuesday members of Net Impact Club had a community dinner event at La Vaqueria Montanesa.  We bonded over delicious, locally sourced food while discussing topics related to sustainable business practices. La Vaqueria Montanesa is a restaurant dedicated to simplicity and honesty in their business. As members of Net impact we love that they focus on being “green” and source their meat directly from ethical farmers whose cattle roam free. This was a fantastic event to get to know one another and Madrid better while enjoying some of the best caprese salad, and roast chicken one can find!

IE Rotaract Club- Animal Shelter visit

Written on March 29, 2019 by Campus Life in IE Stories

In September 2018 the Rotaract Club of Segovia organized a trip to the local animal shelter, Animalejos. Before the visit, the club held fundraisers such as bake sales as well as a Godparent initiative to raise funds for the shelter to be able to gather food, blankets and toys. The Godfather initiative consisted of students donating money to a specific dog for which they then received a certificate, a plaque with the dog’s name and a small photograph. Not only were student able to “adopt” dogs, but also some horses, sheep, cats and even a pig.  

 The Rotaract Club and some 40 volunteers went to Animalejos in September and March to go and help out. The team managed to build two new kennel spaces, wash and walk the dogs, feed and play with the dogs as well as planting some trees in memory of the deceased dogs. The visits were very successful and both the shelter and the volunteers are eager to repeat these trips. With the joint effort of the Rotaract Club and the volunteers, we have managed to make a real difference for Animalejos and the animals. We have been able to establish a good relationship with Animalejos and hope to make regular trips and continue supporting this great cause.  

The Rotaract Club is grateful for any donations if in the form of money, food, toys or other products that want to be made to Animalejos.
