Species' navigation: Stanford - Pereira, Computer History Museum - Pereira (CHS Fernando Pereira is Distinguished Scientist at Google), Meeting Ming at Carlos Pereira's talk Stanford today, and his offer to help with translation into Cantonese and Mandarin (called Traditional Chinese at CC MIT OCW), How best to map the "Understanding Computer" to the BRAIN (e.g. Google Brain, conceptually - and re Google/Stanford's Thomas Dean's work), as well as to all 7,099 living languages in native speakers' brains as they speak, in this time of great strides in voice recognition software, such as at Google, and in a Google platform? ... and re WUaS's interactive realistic virtual earth at the Google Streetview/Maps/Earth, cellular and atomic levels with TIME SLIDER and for all species (3-100 million species) and all of evolutionary history?, And could one go directly from 10 native speakers of each (of all 7,099) languages in Google Group Video Hangouts to ... Online Stanford courses, and a past online law course from Stanford too

Dear Scott,
it was a pleasure meeting you today during the event here at Stanford.

Your projects sound very interesting. If you believe there could be any opportunity for me to help, I would be glad to.

I hope to hear from you again soon.

Best regards,
Marcia Pulcherio

Dear Marta (and Prof. Carlos Pereira and Molly), 

Thank you so much for your email, Marta. And it was very nice to meet you (all). 

Foi muito bom conhecer e falar com você na palestra Stanford de Carlos Pereira agora (from Google Translate "It was very nice to meet and talk with you at Carlos Pereira's Stanford talk" - https://clas.stanford.edu/events/clas-lecture-series-paradox-unpopular-corruption-and-popular-corrupt-politicians (https://clas.stanford.edu/people/carlos-pereira) - just now - where GNMT welcomes suggestions for improvement). 

World University and School may seek to translate more of these - ocw.mit.edu - courses into - https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/portuguese/ - for example, and under Creative Commons' licensing, and newly with Medicine and Law CC OpenCourseWare, hopefully from Stanford Law and Medicine. 

And here's the Brazil World University and School, not yet in Portuguese - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Brazil - and the Portuguese language wiki subject page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Portuguese_language (also not yet in Portuguese) - since WUaS is also a WIKI (like Wikipedia). Again, WUAS is seeking to offer online university and high school degrees in Portuguese - Bachelor, Ph.D., law, M.D. and I.B. high school. And here's the beginning of the "Brazil_Law_School_at_WUaS" -  http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Brazil_Law_School_at_WUaS - also planned in Portuguese. 

WUaS is currently moving to this brand new wiki - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org (soon to be accessible in all 295 Wikipedia languages, and eventually in all 7,099 living languages) - and we may need help translating the SUBJECT TEMPLATE section headings into Portuguese (and other Brazilian languages), for example. And we'll also need online CC OCW law courses, as well, eventually, in Portuguese+.

I'm not sure what Prof. Carlos Pereira's email is, since I think he said it was - ... - but this doesn't seem to be listed in Stanford websites. Do you happen to know what it might be please? 

I hope you enjoy your LLM studies at Stanford Law. And I'm excited if all of this can emerge in a 3D realistic virtual earth with interactivity and for STEM research, (think Google Streetview/Maps/Earth with TIME SLIDER and with avatar bots, and which is group build-able like OpenSimulator/Second Life - but realitiscally, and at the cell and atomic levels, and with all 7,099 living languages:)

Best regards, 
Scott

Computer History Museum - Pereira
(CHS Fernando Pereira is Distinguished Scientist at Google)
Although I gave him World University and School's card at this event, I didn't get his card or email address, so I didn't send him the following email.


Dear Fernando (Pereira), 

Thanks for your fascinating talk at the Computer History Museum on Tu Oct 10, 2017 (with interviewer John Markoff).

How best to map the "Understanding Computer" -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DRK8fh5WsM - to the BRAIN (e.g. Google Brain, conceptually - and re Google/Stanford's Thomas Dean's work), as well as to all 7,099 living languages in native speakers' brains as they speak, in this time of great strides in voice recognition software, such as at Google, and in a Google platform? ... and re WUaS's interactive realistic virtual earth at the Google Streetview/Maps/Earth, cellular and atomic levels with TIME SLIDER and for all species (3-100 million species) and all of evolutionary history? 

And could one go directly from 10 native speakers of each (of all 7,099) languages in Google Group Video Hangouts to ...

謝謝,我會的,明 (from Google Translate "Thank you, I will, Ming" - where GNMT welcomes suggestions for improvement).

And here's the China World University and School, not yet in Chinese - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/China - and the Mandarin language (Chinese) wiki subject page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Mandarin_language_(Chinese) (also not yet in Chinese) - since WUaS is also a WIKI (like Wikipedia). 

WUaS is currently moving to this new wiki - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org - and may need help translating the SUBJECT TEMPLATE section headings into both Cantonese and Mandarin, for example.

Dear Scott,

It was very nice to meet you, and thank you for coming to our lecture this past Friday

Looking through the content on the new wiki site (https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org) was fun - I wish I had more time to these online courses offered by universities across the nation. Stanford has online courses athttp://online.stanford.edu/courses, and the Center for Latin American Studies collaborated on a project a few years back that produced an online course of sorts (videos + discussions) on the International Criminal Court:http://shrei.stanford.edu/node/449

Best of luck with everything. Keep us posted as the project develops. 

Best,
Molly

Thank you for your email, Molly - and very nice to meet you as well! And likewise, Marta and Carlos! I wonder in what ways "Online Stanford Courses" at http://online.stanford.edu/courses could become a possible course web site location for Stanford Medicine (I noticed that you used to work in the Medical School, Molly) and Stanford Law CC OpenCourseWare courses in Portuguese, Spanish, and indeed in all ~200 countries' official languages, perhaps building out of the Stanford International Criminal Court course

World University and School is currently in the process of developing a wiki "SUBJECT TEMPLATE" and other templates, and for individual courses, as well - focusing on the CC MIT OCW in 7 languages https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/ . Here's an overview of this - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2017/10/verbascum-contemporary-overview-of-how.html - and other WUaS current developments.  

Might you be available to help focus some of this at Stanford, Molly, if the opportunity arises? 

Best, Scott

Hi Scott,

(I am moving Marcia and Carlos to the BCC so as to not fill their inboxes.) I think this conversation would best be directed to Stanford's Online Courses' staff (along with the School of Medicine and Law School). I'm afraid I am not a very useful contact in terms of what you are looking for as the initiatives in which I work are primarily in-person workshops for/with K-12 and community college instructors. I would love to keep up on the progress of your site, but I'm afraid I'm not in the position to work on it from Stanford's end.

Best,
Molly

Hi Carlos, Marcia and Molly,

As a followup to your great talk last week, Carlos, I blogged a bit it and Brazil World Univ & Sch here - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2017/10/species-navigation-stanford-pereira.html - and vis-a-vis Google VP Fernando Pereira, whose Computer History Museum interview with senior technical writer for The New York Times, John Markoff is posted in this blog entry (as well as about Ming Wong, whom I also met at your talk).

Best, Scott
