Reviewing the video(s) from Bau-ABC – Part 1: What kinds of messages are there to be found?

September 27th, 2014 by Pekka Kamarainen

In my latest blog I gave a quick overview of the video produced by the Bau-ABC team for the consortium meeting of the Learning Layers (LL) project that took place in Tallinn from Wednesday to Friday. I wrote the blog when I was preparing the presentation of the video in the meeting. From that point of view it became an overview on the contents as such – a verbalised table of contents. Now, after having viewed the video some  more times, I realize that we have a much richer resource at our hands than we thought. Before I go further with my second thoughts I will share the link here:

In this first post I outline a set of questions that I will discuss in a series of posts. With these questions I try to get a deeper insight into the importance of this video material for us as project partners and for external viewers. In particular I want to tease out some feedback on, what the project is achieving and what kind of impact it can have in the construction sector. From this point of view I will discuss in the next posts the following questions:

  1. What do we learn from the usability of Learning Toolbox in that training provided by Bau-ABC?
  2. What do we learn from possible uses of Learning Toolbox in companies and in workplace contexts?
  3. What do we learn of the views of trainers on Learning Toolbox?
  4. What do we learn of the impact of the Multimedia Training in Bau-ABC?

As I see it, the current video is a treasure island that has several treasures that need to be found and mapped. In the following blogs I try to identify the sections that respond to the above mentioned questions and to highlight the messages that are coming through.

    Racial bias in algorithms

    From the UK Open Data Institute’s Week in Data newsletter

    This week, Twitter apologised for racial bias within its image-cropping algorithm. The feature is designed to automatically crop images to highlight focal points – including faces. But, Twitter users discovered that, in practice, white faces were focused on, and black faces were cropped out. And, Twitter isn’t the only platform struggling with its algorithm – YouTube has also announced plans to bring back higher levels of human moderation for removing content, after its AI-centred approach resulted in over-censorship, with videos being removed at far higher rates than with human moderators.

    Gap between rich and poor university students widest for 12 years

    Via The Canary.

    The gap between poor students and their more affluent peers attending university has widened to its largest point for 12 years, according to data published by the Department for Education (DfE).

    Better-off pupils are significantly more likely to go to university than their more disadvantaged peers. And the gap between the two groups – 18.8 percentage points – is the widest it’s been since 2006/07.

    The latest statistics show that 26.3% of pupils eligible for FSMs went on to university in 2018/19, compared with 45.1% of those who did not receive free meals. Only 12.7% of white British males who were eligible for FSMs went to university by the age of 19. The progression rate has fallen slightly for the first time since 2011/12, according to the DfE analysis.
