The "Application reference" The teaching of mathematics in this way prevents exactly what it was supposed to achieve: Enthusiasm for mathematics as a cultural science

Slowly but surely, the public awareness of conflict on the subject of "education" is increasing (overburdened schoolchildren and politicians on a denial tour). Mathematics, which belongs to the cultural core of the Enlightenment, takes a key position in this process. Whoever wants to reduce it to its application-related practicability, however "well-intentioned" his intentions may be, destroys our culture.

A vehement, general debate on the subject of math didactics last took place more than thirty years ago, when the ie was the use of set theory. Die Gegner befurchteten vor allem, fur den Alltag notwendige praktische Fertigkeiten wie schriftliches Addieren und Dividieren wurden einem kindischen Herumschieben bunter Figuren geopfert, die Kinder wurden nichts furs Leben lernen. The different points of view were represented with immense vehemence and probably had less to do with pedagogical questions than with diverging ideas of society.

That artificial intelligence can outperform some, probably more likely many, human cognitive performances is now obvious. Whenever a lot of data can be analyzed for machine learning, AI programs can also outpace experts. As early as late 2017, a program was unveiled in China that used a flood of data from 53 medical textbooks, 2 million medical records and 400.000 medical texts and reports, as well as with clinical experiences and case diagnoses was fed. The medical exam was not a difficulty, now the smart robot is to assist doctors in diagnosis, whose work could then be reduced to manual skills, unless surgical robots lend a hand (AI program better than humans at understanding natural language).

For weeks, the mass settings have been suspected in the US after the 11.September reports (Liberty this by Inches). Often an Arabic-sounding name ranged to disappear in the prison for unlimited time.

The intestinal day had simply called a residence reason when entering the entry and not specified the flight lessons.
