Micro Lessons using our Instagram Photos #InstagramMicroLessons in our courses.
One week after Hurricane Irma crossed Florida from the Keys to our home in Jacksonville, Florida, we collected several lessons to be used in our Management courses this coming week. We are going to use our Instagram pictures to follow the hurricane and share our thoughts, analyses, and decisions to protect our family and friends. We were in our bunker (condo) hosting a family of five friends who evacuated Miami.
Here are the points that we are covering in our courses:
- Emergency Preparedness #GlobalManagement
- Weather Data Analysis #GlobalSystems
- City Leaders During Storms #GlobalLeadership

This week we will add some of these points to our weekly discussion. Have a great week.

How I’m fighting bias in algorithms | Joy Buolamwini | TEDxBeaconStreet
LESSON CREATED BY JOSE G. LEPERVANCHE USING VIDEO FROM TED for non-native English speakersYOUTUBE CHANNEL
MIT Media Lab grad student Joy Buolamwini was working with facial recognition software when she noticed a problem: the software didn’t recognize her face — because the people who coded the algorithm hadn’t taught it to identify a broad range of skin tones and facial structures. Now she’s on a mission to fight bias in machine learning. She spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet in Boston. Join #codedgaze. (Ref: TED.com)
Topic includes logic programming, coding, facial recognition software, and related uses of technologies to solve social issues.
