FOX News

Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on In the coming weeks, students around the nation will hear their names read aloud, walk across a platform and move their tassels to signify graduation from high school or college. After years of working toward receiving their diploma or degree, they are now off to start a new adventure in their lives. And, for others, there may be the apprehension of not knowing what is next. As a college president, here are five pieces of advice I have for graduating seniors.

First-of-its-kind artificial intelligence, leadership programme launched for Guyanese students


Over 100 Guyanese students will benefit from the Spark Programme – an artificial intelligence and leadership initiative – aimed at equipping them to grow their technological skills and create economic opportunities. The programme is in collaboration with two overseas-based Guyanese, Professor and Scientist at the University of Michigan, Jason Mars and Denise Hilliman, a former science educator and the Chief Executive Officer of Lead Mindset – leadership curriculum. The programme is being facilitated by the Ministry of Education. Mars and Hilliman will be sharing their knowledge of artificial intelligence, technology and leadership with students here. "We have come together to do something for our people and to bring the successes we have in the diaspora and come back home to spark the pathway to ignite innovation and perhaps a transformation in technology and economic prosperity by working on what is on the minds of our young people," Mars said at the launch of the programme at the National Centre for Educational Resource Development (NCERD), Kingston, Georgetown.

The Role of Social Movements, Coalitions, and Workers in Resisting Harmful Artificial Intelligence and Contributing to the Development of Responsible AI Artificial Intelligence

There is mounting public concern over the influence that AI based systems has in our society. Coalitions in all sectors are acting worldwide to resist hamful applications of AI. From indigenous people addressing the lack of reliable data, to smart city stakeholders, to students protesting the academic relationships with sex trafficker and MIT donor Jeffery Epstein, the questionable ethics and values of those heavily investing in and profiting from AI are under global scrutiny. There are biased, wrongful, and disturbing assumptions embedded in AI algorithms that could get locked in without intervention. Our best human judgment is needed to contain AI's harmful impact. Perhaps one of the greatest contributions of AI will be to make us ultimately understand how important human wisdom truly is in life on earth.

Demystifying artificial intelligence


Natalie Lao was set on becoming an electrical engineer, like her parents, until she stumbled on course 6.S192 (Making Mobile Apps), taught by Professor Hal Abelson. Here was a blueprint for turning a smartphone into a tool for finding clean drinking water, or sorting pictures of faces, or doing just about anything. "I thought, I wish people knew building tech could be like this," she said on a recent afternoon, taking a break from writing her dissertation. After shifting her focus as an MIT undergraduate to computer science, Lao joined Abelson's lab, which was busy spreading its App Inventor platform and do-it-yourself philosophy to high school students around the world. App Inventor set Lao on her path to making it easy for anyone, from farmers to factory workers, to understand AI, and use it to improve their lives.

High school performs 'Alien' as a play and it looks spectacular


If you need proof that kids these days are alright and amazing, simply cast your eyes on the students at New Jersey's North Bergen High School who put on a stage play version of the classic sci-fi horror film Alien. The play was complete with all the trappings of the film, including the infamous facehugger alien, the stomach-bursting scene, and, yes, the large, menacing xenomorph that has come to haunt the nightmares of generations of moviegoers. And it all looked amazing. The school put on a pair of performances for the play in recent days and photos and videos have gone viral quickly, being shared all across platforms like Reddit and Twitter.

Opinion A.I. Still Needs H.I. (Human Intelligence), for Now


Fifteen years ago I came to Bangalore, India's Silicon Valley, to do a documentary on outsourcing. One of our first stops was a company called 24/7 whose main business was answering customer service calls and selling products, like credit cards, for U.S. companies half a world away. The beating heart of 24/7 back then was a vast floor of young phone operators, most with only high school degrees, save for a small pool of techies who provided "help desk" advice. These young Indians spoke in the best American English, perfected in a class that we filmed, where everyone had to practice enunciating "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers" -- and make it sound like they were from Kansas not Kolkata. The operations floor was so noisy from hundreds of simultaneous phone conversations that 24/7 installed a white-noise machine to muffle the din, but even then you could still occasionally hear piercing through the cacophony some techie saying to someone in America, the likes of: "What, Ma'am? Your computer is on fire?"

The Google graveyard: Remembering three dead search engines


Buffy the Vampire Slayer was the first show on American television to use the word "Google" as a transitive verb. It was 2002, in the fourth episode of the show's seventh and final season. Buffy, Willow, Xander and the gang are trying to help Cassie, a high school student who cryptically says she's going to die next week. In Buffy's dining room, they search through hard copies of Cassie's medical records and find nothing noteworthy. Willow, tapping away on a thick white iBook, turns to Buffy and asks, "Have you Googled her yet?"
