Amazing backers from around the world including many from the #AI / #robotics / #software / #hardware communities have made the Complete Guide to Artificial Intelligence for Kids a funded reality!

We've got 4 days to go before the campaign closes and have added stretch goals:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change the world and affect one group in society more than any other... our kids.

The "Complete Guide to Artificial Intelligence for Kids" introduces children to today's most transformative technology and the key concepts underlying it.

It includes kid-friendly fully-illustrated coverage of topics including what is AI, neural networks, how does AI learn, data bias, AI strengths and weaknesses, application areas, challenges like driverless car decision making and potential benefits and problems for society.

We've also worked hard to make the guide inclusive and affordable.

The guide is now available on Kickstarter (and also available directly if your school or organization can't do Kickstarter):

Postdoctoral Research Fellow position at the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision, Brisbane, Australia
School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Science and Engineering Faculty
Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (https://www.roboticvision.org/) is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for a range of self-driving-car research projects and demonstrations. The role involves working with some of the world’s leading experts in SLAM, localization, perception, detection, sensing, scene understanding and action recognition across the centre’s nodes at 4 leading Australian universities (Queensland University of Technology (QUT), University of Adelaide, The Australian National University and Monash University).

The role involves working under the direction of senior centre staff. Specific responsibilities include the development and running of centre-wide self-driving car research challenges and technical demonstrations, working with researchers to develop and integrate their research into autonomous vehicle platforms (both cars and smaller autonomous robots) and assisting with publication and dissemination of the research.

Applicants require a working familiarity with computer vision, deep learning, machine learning, autonomous robots / vehicles and sensing hardware, and a strong track record in leading collaborative team activity. The role is based at QUT in Brisbane, Australia but will require regular travel to the centre’s other nodes in Melbourne, Adelaide and Canberra. This appointment will be offered on a fixed- term, full-time basis for 2 (two) years.

Apply and Enquiries

To express an interest in the role or for any enquiries, please e-mail rv@qut.edu.au with the subject line “selfdriving” and include:

- a one page cover letter detailing your interest in and experience for the role,
- a detailed resume including details of past project work, and
- a link to your Google Scholar profile.

Applications close October 15th 2017.

Please support our Kickstarter Campaign "STEM Storybook"! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1740916372/stem-storybook

The STEM Storybook is a beautifully illustrated collection of stories to helps kids learn and understand key STEM concepts in a super fun way.

We’re all about engaging and exciting people of all ages in STEM. We’re already working with teenagers through Math Thrills workshops and a young adult novel, and adults through Maths in the Movies workshops and studio-approved Hollywood science movie reviews.

Now, inspired by our own young kids, we've created the STEM Storybook to help kids in those critical early childhood years. Please get involved and spread the word to family, friends, teachers, parents, early childhood carers and educators!
