Dear friends on WUaS's Board and sporadic Universitians,
I'm removing the "MIT" name from CC WUaS's web presence and signatures, per CC MIT OCW's recent communication. See this licensing clarification correspondence with MIT OCW from Friday: http://scott-macleod.blogspot.
com/2015/01/rowan-berries- licensing-clarification.html and http://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/2015/01/licensing-clarification-from-mit-ocw.html.
I've also added a sample CC lecture from Professor Anand Agarwal for upcoming WUaS outreach in Portland, Oregon, - both for Reedies as interns, as well as Quaker high school students, here - http://

Hi Ji, ...
Concerning your paragraph ... "University faculty who are accessing Watson's free APIs and doing interesting things in student projects are getting preference for IBM faculty awards. Do you have faculty and students who can access those free APIs on Bluemix and do interesting projects? For example, one of the APIs does language identification" ... In my WUaS outreach to Reed College as well as Quaker students next weekend (1/16-1/18), I'll mention your "Watson's free APIs and doing interesting things in student projects" to prospective students and interns ... I also mentioned this to WUaS monthly business meeting this morning, and will explore with Larry Viehland further possibly using some Watson APIs in student projects in both my "Information Technology, Network Society and the Global University" course this autumn 2015, as well as inquire further if Larry might do so too with his various STEM courses at Chatham University. Exciting too to see that "Language Identification," "Machine Translation," "Question and Answer" and "Visualization Rendering" and more, have IBM Watson APIs - (http://www.ibm.com/smarterplanet/us/en/ibmwatson/developercloud/ ). As a FYI, I searched on Google and Bing for "IBM Watson / Bluemix for Android," for example, but didn't find anything. I then found - http://www.ibm.com/smarterplanet/us/en/ibmwatson/developercloud/ - and, based on the APIs at the bottom - e.g. "Language Identification," "Machine Translation," "Question and Answer" and "Visualization Rendering" (plus more) - added the following - ===Select Programs, Applications, Languages, Software=== IBM Watson Developer Cloud. 2015. [http://www.ibm.com/smarterplanet/us/en/ibmwatson/developercloud/ IBM Watson Developer Cloud]. Armonk, NY: ibm.com/smarterplanet/us/en/ibmwatson/developercloud/ . - to these WUaS pages (with so much MIT OCW) - Artificial_Intelligence - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Artificial_Intelligence Educational_Software - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Educational_Software Languages (planned for all 7000 plus) - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages (planned for all 7000 plus) Modeling - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Modeling WUaS_Universal_Translator - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/WUaS_Universal_Translator I'll look further at some of these Watson APIs to learn explicitly their potential for courses in a variety of ways, and also especially for inter-lingual WUaS developments. Would it be possible to explore collaborating with Yassi and team to develop WUaS in WordPress with a database of Universitians, as a kind of further development in "WUaS as an ISSIP Grand Challenge," and as WUaS prepares to move from Wikia to Wikidata, anticipating the semantic web, machine learning and AI, and inter-lingually in all 7,000 plus languages? These are all such exciting and fascinating developments. - Scott
