Adobe Spark for Education
Companies are clamouring for attention from the education sector recently, and Adobe Spark is no exception. Adobe Spark for Education enables students and teachers access to premium features of their Spark products (page, video, post etc), and single sign-in options for those Google Apps for Education schools out there. We are currently processing this functionality, and hope to have it activated ASAP.
Talk to Books
Yep, this is another of Google’s wacky, yet brilliant ideas. They fed the text of over 100,000 books into their AI Engine, and Talk to Books is the result. You ask Talk to Books a question, and it pulls up the most likely responses in a conversation. No, it’s not an exact science, but it IS interesting. I’d encourage you to look at some of the samples they have on their homepage.
