Minutes:


1

BPPE web site was inaccessible last week to WUaS, but WUaS is continuing with licensing.



2

World Univ & Sch will inquire about getting a letter saying that WUaS received this National Science Foundation Award from our NSF program director.



3 & 4

WUaS has inquired with Stanford Professor John Hennessy (former President, current Chair of Alphabet, Google's parent company) about approaches to inspiration in learning re Stanford), and with regard too, for example, to setting up on Scotland World University and School for Scottish students studying from their homes.



5

WUaS will inquire with James Andrus and Brian Brooks about a specific contact person with regards to WUaS potentially helping to facilitate a single cryptocurrency, in some number ~200 countries' languages and potentially somehow backed by central banks, and potentially in conjunction with Universal Basic Income experiments (such as in Stockton, CA), and also as 'assistive technologies,' - re the WUaS Press / Co (and World Univ & Sch's planned online law schools) - (particularly re CalPERs' James Andrus, and CoinBase's Brian Brooks), and in WUaS planning to code for all 7.5 billion people on the planet.



6

'Parameterizing' all disciplines ignorances, especially the 'hard' / natural sciences (physics, chemistry, biology, geology, etc.) in coding the machine learning architecture for a realistic virtual universe may partly inform World University and School's approach to helping to create a realistic virtual earth at the street view / cellular and atomic levels.



7

Avatar Bot Electronic Medical / Health Records


World Univ & Sch seeks to plan for avatar bot electronic medical/health records for all the 7.5 billion people on the planet (and re the estimated 4 billion people on planet who don't have physical addresses, see - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/12/earth-lithium-ion-battery-innovation.html) - and with regard to online WUaS medical schools with online teaching hospitals for online clinical care, and clinical research, so universal health care online.


Conceptually this could involve developing Project Baseline into Electronic Medical Records (EMR / EHR) and eventually re being able to design robotics out of Project Baseline / Google ecosystem / Google Street View with TIME SLIDER with BRICK Street View (re Lego Bricks) with Lego Robotics into all kinds of other robotics.



8

Information technology-wise, World Univ and Sch seeks further to develop with machine learning within the Google ecosystem with its ~100 languages in Translate (with Wikidata / Wikibase in its ~300 Wikipedia languages, and best STEM CC-4 OpenCourseWare in its 5 languages)


Re engagement:

A)

at Google in ~100 languages: - WUsS is keeping Peter Norvig in mind as contact person IT-wise


B)

at Wikidata in its ~300 languages contact - Wikidata's project manager Lydia Pintscher is WUaS contact person.


C)

And with regards to WUaS and CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare in 5 languages  - it's Creative Commons' 4 licensing allowing for sharing, adapting, but non-commercially, with the following -  MIT OCW Creative Commons' licensing and endorsement clarifications: a) MIT is not affiliated with, and does not endorse, World University and School b) MIT does not offer credit to WUaS students, and c) All MIT OpenCourseWare materials are available for free through http://ocw.mit.edu), accessible here - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ and in WUaS daily Twitter 'newspaper,' - "WorldUnivandSch @WorldUnivAndSch The latest The MIT OpenCourseWare Daily!" - for example - https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/1122313659148062720
