The Department Of Education Issues Recommendations For How Educators Should Approach The Use Of AI – Benzinga Dives Deeper With EdTech CEO

Amesite Inc.

By David Willey, Benzinga Follow the latest news from Amesite, Inc. Dr. Ann Marie Sastry, CEO of Amesite, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMST), recently appeared on Benzinga’s All Access Live, a live show where Benzinga highlights companies and leaders who are transforming their industry. Amesite is an eLearning platform and content provider powered by artificial intelligence (AI). The company is looking to revolutionize the traditional educational experience and harness the power of AI for the next generation of learners. Amesite has had an AI-first approach from its inception, and Dr. Sastry spoke about how this “build-to-integrate” approach has given the company both philosophical and technical advantages in the market. The company sees that the world is moving rapidly toward the integration of AI across all sectors, and it believes that this is creating a need for services that make AI readily available and part of daily life. Also, on a very practical level, Dr. Sastry believes companies that don’t adopt AI will quickly become obsolete and be left behind in the fast-changing economic environment. Amesite is addressing this need both by integrating AI technology into its platform and by educating its users in AI competence. One way it is doing this is by offering a free course on the fundamentals of ChatGPT. Amesite’s AI-First Framework In fact, Amesite moved early to integrate language learning model (LLM) technology, and it recently announced the launch of its Version 6.3 (V6) platform, which incorporates GPT4 technology. This means that courses hosted on Amesite’s platform take advantage of cutting-edge AI features to provide a premium Learning Management System (LMS). Dr. Sastry explained how with Amesite, people can harness AI to answer questions and create content, enabling the delivery of mass customized, deeply engaging learning experiences. Dr. Sastry credits their provision of AI solutions as one of the reasons why Amesite delivers a high retention rate of 99% for learners on its platform. Dr. Sastry highlighted Amesite’s GPT-4 powered AI bot, which is available 24/7 to provide learners with support and answers to their questions. The platform also has a feature that allows for contextualized information. That means courses on popular topics will include a sidebar populated with current news stories to complement the course material with up-to-date sources. These features, and Amesite’s approach, make it an increasingly popular choice for organizations looking to leverage AI. “The world is moving very fast,” said Dr. Sastry. “You have to have the infrastructure and the mindset. We are an AI-first company, we have been thinking about this for a long time, and we’re integrating it very rapidly.” Amesite recently published a free integration white paper that can be downloaded by the public here. The Need For An AI-Powered Learning System The interview occurred following the Department of Education issuing recommendations for how educators should approach the use of AI in a learning environment. A survey of 1,000 college students found that more than 60% had used ChatGPT for help with homework, and a third had used it on a written assignment. This means that it is important to integrate ChatGPT and other AI tools into the classroom, not only to provide learning benefits but because it is crucial for helping students approach technology in a controlled and supportive environment. This is what Amesite is looking to do through its premium platform and eLearning service. Amesite has already worked with numerous institutions, including universities, museums, and corporations, to deliver important educational and upskilling training. Read more about Amesite’s position as a cutting-edge adopter of AI in education. Amesite Inc., an artificial intelligence driven platform and course designer, provides online products in the United States. The company uses machine learning to offer a mass customized experience to learners. Its customers include businesses, universities and colleges, K-12 schools, and non-profit organizations. The company was incorporated in 2017 and is headquartered in Detroit, Michigan. This post contains sponsored advertising content.

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/ZeizUJJRJQ8 Like other Americans, teachers have had to navigate the rising cost of living, often on tight salaries. To help make ends meet, teachers have taken to hosting on Airbnb as an option to help supplement income during summer months and beyond. In 2022, teachers collectively earned more than $330 million1 - including $110 million2 during the summer months alone. This money helps provide a meaningful boost in income when class is not in session, and can help cover household bills, pay for everyday expenses, and fund hobbies outside of the classroom. Educator Hosts have long been a part of the Airbnb community. In 2022, the number of US educators hosting on Airbnb increased by nearly 10 percent3 compared with the previous year, underscoring the fact that more and more teachers are taking advantage of the economic benefits of home sharing.

Treat Your Inner Explorer

YourUpdateTV

For travelers tuned in to the call of the water, Visit North Carolina rolls out Dream Big in Small Town NC on the Inner Banks, a region shaped by a far-reaching river and a history-making sound. The initiative arrives with a sweepstakes that showcases hurry-free destinations with wide-open beauty, water-based adventure and unexpected experiences. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/1md5p4XvYtI “Now is the perfect time to discover destinations along the Albemarle Sound and the Roanoke River,” said Wit Tuttell, executive director of Visit NC. “For travelers visiting towns on the Albemarle, this summer’s launch of Harbor Towns Cruises will enhance the experience with tours and between-town trips. And 2023’s Year of the Trail celebration draws attention to the newly designated Roanoke River State Trail and its connect-the-dots River Towns.” Dream Big in Small Town NC, created by the General Assembly as the Rural Tourism Recovery Pilot Program, targets 16 counties at risk for population loss as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative aims to boost local economies with an infusion of visitor spending plus an introduction to the quality of life in under-the-radar locations. The initiative targets Chowan, Gates, Hertford, Martin, Perquimans, Tyrrell and Washington counties for the Inner Banks following previous promotions of designated counties in the Scenic Mountains and Northeast Lakes & Rivers region. Travelers who want to explore the Inner Banks destinations might start by entering the sweepstakes for a chance to win: · A $1,000 voucher from program partner Airbnb. · Three $100 gift cards for a choice of restaurants, shops and activities including Harbor Town Cruises, Native Girl Kayaking, Beechwood Country Club and Old Colony Smokehouse. · A $500 gift card from Visit NC to assist with travel expenses. Scenic beauty, singular attractions and intriguing histories shape the Inner Banks towns that have blossomed in the homeland of the Meherrin, Chowanoke and other Native American tribes. Traveling among the destinations, nature lovers can find opportunities to spot black bears, Tundra swans and alligators while history aficionados can immerse themselves in a host of stories, ranging from the feats of Edenton socialite Penelope Barker, the first American woman to organize political action, to Hertford’s Jim “Catfish” Hunter, the Baseball Hall of Famer. “Anytime I go to Hertford, I stop at the Catfish Hunter Memorial and then head to Captain Bob’s for barbecue,” said Tuttell, a die-hard baseball fan and barbecue aficionado. He also notes that Williamston has a city park named for its hometown hero, Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry. Harbor Towns Cruises, launching this summer with a pair of custom-built Hysucats (hydrofoil-supported catamarans), will make good use of the placid Albemarle Sound with tours and ferry trips that include the Dream Big communities of Hertford, Edenton, Plymouth and Columbia. The destinations brim with local character that complements the expansive beauty of the sound, the largest freshwater lagoon in North America. “Travelers fall in love with Edenton and other Inner Banks destinations,” said Erienne Mizell, Visit Edenton’s tourism director. “Beyond the romance of the water, people connect with our stories and often want to become part of the places that have seen so much history built amid such beauty. Our free parking and complimentary two-night boat docking speaks to the hospitality that defines our community. It is that same spirit that flows into our passion for preservation, which in Edenton includes everything from our welcome center at the Penelope Barker House to the restored 17th-century ice house that is now The Herringbone on the Waterfront.” Like Hertford, Edenton enjoys a place on both the Harbor Towns lineup and as a designated river town on the Roanoke River State Trail, which was officially designated in November 2021. At 410 miles, the Roanoke is North Carolina’s longest river, loved by locals and visitors alike for fishing, paddling and platform camping. Roanoke River Partners, which is based in a former Rosenwald School in Hamilton, helps adventure seekers connect with Native Girl Kayaking, Frog Hollow Outfitters, and other rental and guide services. State parks, museums and singular attractions convey the region’s special sense of place. In Gatesville, old-growth cypress trees draped in moss make Merchants Millpond State Park an enchanted forest, and it’s the American alligator’s northernmost habitat. Between Plymouth and Columbia, Pettigrew State Park displays centuries-old dugout canoes dredged up from Phelps Lake. Nearby Somerset Place State Historic Site presents a comprehensive and realistic view of 19th-century life on a large North Carolina plantation. In Murfreesboro, the Brady C. Jefcoat Museum of Americana features a mind-blowing collection with everything from an RCA Dog and a sofa from “Gone with the Wind” to butter churns and a dog-powered washing machine. Native American artifacts are also on view. Plymouth’s NC Black Bear Discovery Center offers a lesson in the region’s black bear population, the densest in the world. A five-minute walk leads to the Port O’Plymouth Museum, which tells the story of the CSS Albemarle, the Confederacy’s most effective ironclad ram, and its sinking in a daring nighttime raid. Pocosin Arts School of Fine Craft in Columbia is a makers mecca with classes, events and a fine craft gallery on the Scuppernong River. “With all the dreamers who have made this region special, there’s much to inspire today’s travelers,” Tuttell said. “These destinations are ready to welcome them.” About Visit North Carolina: Visit North Carolina is part of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina. Established in 2014, the EDPNC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that oversees the state's efforts in business and job recruitment and retention, international trade, and tourism, film and sports development. The mission of Visit North Carolina is to unify and lead the state in developing North Carolina as a major destination for leisure travel, group tours, meetings and conventions, sports events and film production.

Client Valley

Las Vegas, NV - Mechelle Evans, the founder of GLO by ME SKIN, is pleased to announce her new company dedicated to revolutionizing the skincare industry. With a focus on providing excellent services and education, Mechelle is transforming the way individuals care for their skin. Mechelle, an esteemed Aesthetician, believes that healthy and glowing skin is a birthright for everyone. Recognizing the skin as the body's largest organ, she emphasizes the importance of proper skincare. Through a comprehensive range of services, Mechelle helps her clients achieve their skin goals, whether it's combating acne, reducing wrinkles, or maintaining overall skin health. However, Mechelle's mission extends beyond offering services; she is dedicated to educating individuals about the significance of skincare. She emphasizes the harmful effects of UV rays and environmental pollutants on the skin, which can lead to premature aging and other skin conditions. By instilling the importance of regular facials, proper cleansing, and the use of high-quality products, Mechelle empowers her clients to protect and enhance their skin's health. Mechelle's journey into skincare began in the early 1990s when she worked as a television extra. Witnessing the damage caused by heavy makeup and sun exposure, she became determined to maintain her own skin's health. Her introduction to Dr. Obagi, a renowned skincare expert, solidified her belief in the transformative power of skincare, prompting her to further educate herself on the subject. Motivated by her passion for helping others achieve clear and healthy skin, Mechelle made the life-changing decision to become a full-time aesthetician. Despite leaving behind a six-figure salary, she was driven by a greater purpose. Mechelle aimed to make a lasting impact on people's lives and be remembered for making a real difference. As an advanced licensed professional specializing in melanated skin, Mechelle offers a wide range of services, personalized skincare recommendations, and advanced treatments like chemical peels, microneedling, and lasers. Her goal is to provide effective solutions tailored to diverse skin tones, challenging prevailing mindsets that discourage treatment for such skin types. Driven by her dedication to delivering results, Mechelle embarked on creating her own skincare line. Her flagship product, a 1% retinol, stands out for its ability to address multiple skin types and deliver exceptional results. Infused with powerful antioxidants, essential amino acids, minerals, and botanical moisturizers, this retinol promotes healthy cell regeneration and collagen production, resulting in reduced visible signs of aging, diminished pores, and blemishes. Through GLO by ME SKIN, Mechelle Evans is redefining skincare by combining the power of education, quality treatments, and effective products. With her advanced knowledge, personalized approach, and commitment to inclusivity, she has become a trusted advisor and advocate for skin health.
