The driver's expression doesn't change at all. He must be so bored.

Also, not shown in the video: the family of wild piglets being driven out.

Fucking education, this is not how it works.

Those kids aren't cheating at all. There's probably some term for what they're doing that was used as an excuse to outsource their testing to a sketchy, unaccountable private company. Outcome-based education or something like that. The fact that they're letting an algorithm grade kids' work without any human oversight at all is untenable.

The schools are the ones cheating. All the students are doing is learning to adapt to an unfair system.

I believe it’s called “endangering the school administration’s private nest egg by exposing their cost cutting measure.” I’m having flashbacks to one of the worst teachers I’ve had getting annoyed That I was sleeping in class while we listened to him read a book on tape.

Oh god, the future is just going to be “throw a shitty AI at it” isn’t it. The fact of the matter is that a modern neural network could probably be made to take in a set of test questions, as well as a number of real human answers and learn to grade multi paragraph answers equally to humans, but that would take time, money and effort... just tell it to search for some keywords and let’s fuck off home. (Amusingly with the blackbox aspect of many neural networks, precautions need to be taken that your fancy neural network doesn’t take the low energy method of just looking for keywords while acting like it’s doing something fancy.)

What we need is a startup making software available to monitor startup leaders for psychopathic tendencies.

Default Re: Fucking education! How does it work?

At my institution of secondary learning, my department has decided to embrace the idea that students on the distance learning could be cheating, and design our tests and quizzes so that answers reflect student's ability to apply their skills rather than a bunch of content knowledge they can just look up online and type into their answer sheet.

Myself, I have learned from my administration long long ago that I should give up on the idea that students should know things and meet a minimum quality of work.
