Video games are like alcohol, you are not aware how harmful it is before you have got a serious problem
Description:Playing videos are joy and excited, it also makes you get addicted. Video games has a process to make players get addicted unconsciously. It is about vanity and revenge, but the most critical factor is learning.
Playing video games can get addicted, many people know that, but not everyone understand the reason.
I also play video games, especially online games. I feel excited and successful to beat other players, this is vanity. If I lose a game, I would feel upset and try to fight back to win. Vanity and revenge are elements to make players get addicted, according to my own experience.
Video games can be divided into 2 main types, the first one is a single-player games; another one is multiplayer games, such as online games.
The single-player games are seldom to make players getting addicted, because they are easy to get bored with just trying to beat a higher scores, but the multiplayer games are as dangerous as a boa constrictor.
I sometimes meet skilful players who can beat me easily. Then, I would try to upgrade myself to win my fame back, even pay a certain amount of money to buy weapons. Of course, other players have the same attitude. So, we all get addicted together. Some young players who would admire skilful players so that they contact skilful players, learning how to improve their playing skills. Once young players see a significant improvement, they can't stop trying to win more players. So, they get addicted.
If you try to play a new video game, you should know that the first level of a game is generally for learning. The second level is for practising, let players feel the joy and excitement of the game. The third level is for players to enhance their skills. Thereafter, the game would give players some difficulty to make players believe that they are able to overcome it, or just out of reach. If a player has gained some more experience, the player begins to have vanity and can't stop playing the game. A player reached a higher level, the player have more chance to get addicted. It's very similar to gambling addiction, the number of time a gambler win, the higher chance the gambler gets addicted.
If a player is unwilling to learn to play a game, that player will never get addicted. Therefore, learning is a most critical factor.
Students are lazy to learn at school, why are they willing to learn seriously for playing video games? It's because of joy, excitement and vanity. Learning at school is boring, learning knowledge from textbooks isn't exciting. If students don't study well, they get punishment. Thus, there is no any motivation for students to study hard at school.
Video games are like alcohol, you're not aware how harmful it is before you have got a serious problem.
Here is a good video talking about
Escaping video game addiction
"Today, millions of people around the world from all ages struggle with video game addiction. This issue affects all of life including school grades, job retention, career aspirations and even marriages yet too often the conversation focuses on whether we should play games instead of helping those who want to stop but cannot. A video game addict for more than ten years, Cam joins us to share his story on overcoming and how he changed his life."
Machine Learning Shaping The Future of Health Care
Description:After a decade, the technology of ML has been improved a lot. It likes a baby who has already grown up to be a semi-mature teenager. This teenager can contribute adults to make a better decision than ever.
Machine Learning(ML), when I heard this term a decade ago, I felt it's absurd, it liked a game for having fun.
After a decade, the technology of ML has been improved a lot. It likes a baby who has already grown up to be a semi-mature teenager. This teenager can contribute adults to make a better decision than ever.
Since a Machine(computer system) has the capacities of learning from data, identifying patterns and making basic decisions, ML can be applied in various fields. Google uses ML to optimize the search results for end users. Netflix and Youtube utilizes ML to suggest videos based on users' preferences. Amazon puts Ai, Machine Learning and Face Recognition altogether, to build its retail shop- Amazon Go.
Machine Learning can also be used to shape the future of health care.
"wherever a human makes an important decision, machine learning is being discussed, and is increasingly being used to improve those decisions," says Dr. Andrew Rosenberg, chief information officer for Michigan Medicine.
What Dr. Andrew wants to do is, enrich their ability for predicting what will happen using known data points and unknown ones which the machine does.
Machine Learning can recognise which patients may have potentially life-threatening conditions, such as sepsis, , the body’s response to infection, and advise medical staff to test their blood.
Undoubtedly, the health care professionals make a significant progress with Machine Learning, helps to save a certain amount of patients' lives. I just concern the 69 percent accuracy of prediction that is not high enough.
If you would like to study how Ai and Machine Learning work, the following books are good for you to grasp the basic concept:
Description:Every time they get pride and satisfaction, their faces would alter a bit. I noticed that one of the "pretty girls", a wrinkle on her face has grown longer, another one has got a new wrinkle. The father's mouth have become a bit wider since...
The battle game with those two guys was destroyed by security members. Therefore, I went to the library where is my shelter. I sat in my private seat for having a daydream. That seat is usually available for me, no anyone else would occupy it. The school library is well-designed, I don't understand why students who don't like to visit there.
I heard some strange sound, as if there were people sitting next to me.
"You are so beautiful! My adorable sister."
"Haa...haa...you are beautiful too. We are the most beautiful girls in the world!"
Girls? I can't see any girls! I only see two middle-aged women there. Also, I can't find any beautiful females.
The so-called beautiful girls are laughing as loud as great thunders, spreading over the forest. A crowd of squirrels are jumping from tree to tree, until vanished in the neighbourhood of the wood house that the sisters and their family are living in. A pair of pythons is also scared by their laughter, they are creeping on the meadow to escape as quick as they can. This pair of pythons should be a couple. They are going ahead into a dark hole for hiding themselves. After then, the dark hole is changing the shape from oval to two thick lines instantly. The two thick lines are rising up from the meadow.
"Well...well...well...I am still hungry!" said an enormous boy.
It's incredible! The dark hole is a mouth of that enormous boy!
Although the forest is dim, I can see this supernatural scene clearly.
A laughter can be such powerful, it is entirely out of my imagination.
The enormous boy is going inside the wood house.
"Dear my lovely aunties, you two are the most beautiful babies in the world!" said the enormous boy.
This time, three of them are laughing together. Besides animals escaping, there are around six or seven trees falling down. People living in the nearby urban city, who can hear the noise as well.
The enormous boy's father seems like a normal guy, who is cooking at the kitchen. He suddenly says, "Hey, listen! I have already had dinner at a very nice restaurant, but I am still cooking for you all. Am I a great man?"
The "beautiful girls" and the enormous boy don't dare to speak anything. They should be aware of the father who is holding a kitchen knife in his left hand. The father should hate silence, so, he is shouting madly, "AM I A GREAT MAN?"
"Yes, yes......" the enormous boy said.
"Of course, you are!" One of the "beautiful girls" rushed to say that for comforting the mad dad.
Another "pretty girl" says, "No, you are not a great man. YOU ARE THE GREATEST MAN IN THE WORLD!"
This time, four of them are laughing together. Meanwhile, the meteorological agency for the urban area records an earthquake happening.
Boasting seems to be a significant nutrient for this family, they can't live without it. Every time they get pride and satisfaction, their faces would alter a bit. I noticed that one of the "pretty girls", a wrinkle on her face has grown longer, another one has got a new wrinkle. The father's mouth have become a bit wider since the "beautiful girl" said, "YOU ARE THE GREATEST MAN IN THE WORLD!" It may reflect that the father fully satisfied with the praise.
"Wake up! The recess is over"
"Wake up! Go back to your classroom immediately!"
Being bullied by those two big guys is better than staying alone
Description:Those two big guys were my fellows. I didn't like loneliness. The security staffs caught them out, I was alone again.
The Ai-teachers were amazing, they turned boring lessons to be fun. Students didn't need to transform words into a series of images before they could understand the contents of textbooks.
There was one thing Ai-teachers were unable to do on me. That was, Ai-teachers couldn't help me with overcoming my barriers of sitting still in classroom. No, they couldn't help me. I couldn't sit for more than one hour, my body would've become stiff. So, I must've gone to play basketball in recess, for stretching my tightened body. Why didn't I play other sports? As I said before, I didn't have partners. Basketball was the only sport that I could do with myself.
I threw the ball to the hoop, the ball was travelling in the air. Unexpectedly, I saw a punch coming towards my face. "What can I do?" I naturally moved my head to backward a bit so that I missed the punch. Meanwhile, a big guy fell down on the ground. The two big guys were there again. One was standing with stunned face, another one was lying on the ground.
I was an ambassador of the Change, assigned by the principal. There was only one ambassador, that was me. It was a great fame in the school. Unfortunately, this fame didn't deterred these two big guys to assault me. Why did they assault me? They didn't allow me to play basketball, without any particular reasons. The two big guys attempted to expel me out of the basketball court. I revolted. So, they were trying to give me punches. This was a familiar scene, these two big guys did it almost once a day.
"Bi...Bu...Bi...Bu...Stop bullying...Bi...Bu...Bi...Bu...Stop bullying..." a siren sounded suddenly.
"Stop bullying." Was it warning students to stop bullying, or, informing the security staff going to stop bullying? Which one? Both. It should be.
The two big guys ignored the warning, they were too excited for expelling me, it was a funny game for them. Thus, nothing could get into their ears.
Four security staff members with batons were rushing to catch both big guys out. "No, stop...stop...!" I shouted at the security staff, "release them!" Of course, the security staff didn't listen to me. These two big guys were my fellows. I didn't like loneliness. The security staffs caught them out, I was alone again.
"Is there a school or prison?" thought I while I was staring the four security staff members to take those two big guys away.
Ai-teacher replaced Miss Polly
Description:Miss. Polly is a young and pretty teacher with adorable voice. I bet she must have got many boyfriends. I like looking at her lovely face and perfect body shape, but I really dislike the way she teaches us.
I always call the teachers as speaking-machines. Do you know why? Miss Polly is the history teacher, she teaches us in the way like that:
"Everyone, follow me to recite the content. Once I stop, you all repeat what I've just said. Alright...
'The Fall of France', It is now your turn." said Miss. Polly. Then we recite, "The Fall of France"
Miss. Polly would smile, "Excellent! Let's keep on. 'In May of 1940, Hitler began a dramatic sweep through the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg.......'"
It's very boring. We are Form.3 in secondary school, not primary school.
"Underline from 'This' to 'France'. 'This was part of a strategy to strike at France' it is very important, you all need to memorise it." said Miss Polly.
How important it was? She didn't explain.
What's the purpose of learning history? Miss. Polly answered once long time ago, "We need to learn from the past in order to understand what is happening today."
Miss. Polly is a young and pretty teacher with adorable voice. I bet she must have got many boyfriends. I like looking at her lovely face and perfect body shape, but I really dislike the way she teaches us.
In the last lesson, I raised up my hand to ask, "What's the best way to learn history?" Miss. Polly was excited to say, "Good! I like aggressive students. I appreciate to have you here. Memorise the date and what the protagonists did, all are extremely important for preparing your exam. You also need to give your own opinions. Many students are afraid of giving opinions. Actually, If you can imagine what would you do if you were the protagonist, you are able to answer a question entirely in the exam."
Thus, I believe learning history that is barely for taking the examination. The examination is barely to test your memory and imagination, as well as writing skills. All schoolmates, including me, realise that it is a boring and useless subject.
Today, Miss. Polly was replaced by Ms. Ai-history as expected. A machine is able to speak out the content of a chapter straightly without any mistakes. I really cannot find out even one reason why our school teachers are not replaced by Ai.
I usually lay down on my desk to take a rest in History lesson. Miss Polly woke me up to accuse me several times. I explained to her that I don't fall asleep, but this posture is good for me to get concentrated on the lesson. I can memorise every thing you teach. She didn't believe me initially. I required her to let me lay down on desk, after then, just gave me a quick quiz in the end of lesson. Eventually, she believed and approved me to do it in her lesson.
"Should I lay down on my desk? I don't want to be isolated by Miss Ai-history, but I cannot sit still in this boring lesson. What should I do?" I was annoyed.
The history lesson started formally! All windows and the door were closing slowly. Meanwhile, all lights were switched off instantly. "My goodness, what is going on?" all classmates were nervous. "Relax, a good show is coming!" said Miss. Ai-history with its mechanical voice.
Miss. Ai-history doesn't have a body. It speaks through the speaker hanged on the front wall, it is very close to the ceiling. There is a narrow gap, about 2 centimeters wide, between the speaker and the ceiling. What is the gap for? Who knows!
The projector installed in the middle of the ceiling was illuminating a 3D image. No, it wasn't an image! It was a 3D movie. We didn't need to wear any glasses to see the 3D effect. A background music was fading-in. It was a high quality 3D audio surrounding from back to front; left to right. I heard a crowd of people howling a particular slogan, "liberty, equality, fraternity."
A movie was showing in the classroom. It was a 3D movie to show a history story. We were in the movie and experienced what happened in the France Revolution.
Wow, it's an impressive learning experience so far in my life! We didn't need to transform words to the plots in our minds, we could directly experience the incidents happened in the history.
All classmates loved Miss. Ai-History, they really enjoyed learning history in this dramatic way. Only those isolated students were bored because they couldn't see the exciting 3D movie.
In the English lesson, Mr. Ai-English appeared to perform its teaching duty. Mr. Ai-English provided a difference learning way, he 3D projected different people to talk with us and pointed out our mistakes. I suddenly felt I have got many friends from various countries.
In recess, schoolmates all talked about the Ai-teachers which gave us amazing learning experiences.
The principal came out to walk around the campus. Many schoolmates went to praise the principal.
This time, the principal really did a great job. I was proud to be the ambassador.
