Artificial Intelligence starts when an algorithm becomes able to programme and re-programme itself, thus be able to perform tasks for which it was not originally programmed to do or could not be performed with it’s original code. This implies a software which can “experiment” and learn not only to improve it’s performance but also to perform new tasks. An AI algorithm is a piece of software that can demonstrate cognitive skills only shown by living beings. To give you an analogy, let me use one of the first lessons we all learn in early childhood: do not touch a very hot item or you get burned. Now if you want to protect your algorithm from getting burned, you insert in the algorithm: “IF hot, DO NOT Touch”. This is algorithm. But you programme your algorithm to wander around, algorithm touches the stove, gets burned and implements the line in its code “IF hot, DO NOT Touch”... this is Artificial Intelligence!

Learning is a individual journey of transformation, but teaching is your companion to discovery .
Have you ever thought why some people are fast to orientate with a map, while others tend to be always lost? Or, why some prefer to look at the navigation carefully once before driving, while others need to have it constantly in front of their eyes? And what does this all have to do with implant surgery? Today we will dissect a crucial skill for any implant surgeon, the spatial representation ability and we will discuss how to train and improve it for the benefit of your patients. Finally we have a small challenge to test your skills!
“The Great Resignation”, is one of the main macro-trends that will shape the post pandemic world. Is academia and higher education also affected? All signs show that it is and in ways that could have significant implications for the future of higher education.
