About the Technology Machine learning has made remarkable progress in recent years. We went from near-unusable speech and image recognition, to near-human accuracy. We went from machines that couldn't beat a serious Go player, to defeating a world champion. Behind this progress is deep learning--a combination of engineering advances, best practices, and theory that enables a wealth of previously impossible smart applications.
The events mat shaped the past month period are complex in their de- tail. They had an impact on Jewish communities throughout the world.

It would be a tragic error, he warned, for Is- raelis to expect American Jews to migrate en masse to Israeland to conclude that American Jews are not Jews if they fail to do so. But to back up Klutz- nick's words of warning was little at the Jerusalem convention by way of conviction.
Less than would be desired came from its deliberations to strengthen the assertion that the American Jewish community is a vital philosophic force. This sad impression equally marked the WJC assembly in Stockholmas it did the national con- ventions of Hadassah.
