=== Online wiki universities in South Africa and ... for free online best STEM CC-4 OpenCourseWare degrees ===
Seeking volunteers in South Africa to facilitate a workshop at Wikimania about developing online wiki universities in South Africa and in each of all African countries for free online best STEM CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare degrees in official/main languages, and wiki schools for open teaching and learning in each of all Africa's languages. This would occur via "South Africa World University and School" here - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/South_Africa (and other African countries accessible from here - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Nation_States). Languages are/will be accessible from here - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Languages - in each of all African languages. World Univ. and Sch. - worlduniversityandschool.org - donated itself to Wikidata/Wikibase in 2015 for co-development, and got a new WUaS Miraheze Mediawiki last year in these regards too. (I won't be able to attend due to lack of finances). Multiple creative educational wiki opportunities involved with this project. WUaS is planning to offer online MIT OpenCourseWare-centric Bachelor, Ph.D., Law, International Baccalaureate high school, and online Medical degrees, with online teaching hospitals for clinical care - again with Wikidata/Wikibase structured knowledge database - and in each of all African countries' official main languages. “Bridging knowledge gaps, the *ubuntu* way forward.” If someone would like to submit a workshop proposal please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll help co-develop this remotely. Thanks. --~~~~

Thanks, Jonathan, for your great Stanford talk yesterday - http://events.stanford.edu/events/746/74637/ .
And very nice to meet you afterward, and chat in passing. Congratulations on your imminent baby too! And what was The Friends' School like in Tasmania?
How best to communicate further about "Accelerating Eulerian Fluid Simulation With Convolutional Networks" with regards, for example, to creating a realistic virtual Harbin Hot Springs' pools, and for brain research too, for example, at the cellular and atomic levels (and for oceanography+, and what I'm calling STEM ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy)?
(Think Google Street View w time slider/Maps/Earth & at the cellular & atomic levels with Minecraft/SL/OpenSimulator too e.g. https://twitter.com/sgkmacleod/status/955218421267841024).
Here's a recent email I sent to Cornell Prof Jim Sethna, who spoke at Stanford too, about what I have in mind -
I'm interested here in World University and School facilitating a realistic virtual UNIVERSE actually - ONE UNIVERSE ... ONE ACTUAL < > VIRTUAL UNIVERSE ... so much of this process could be extended infinitely with machine learning. (Might I explore giving a talk about this at Google, by any chance?)
Very nice to meet you and thanks for your excellent talk.
