Great hope from Dana VAN, a Cambodian youth. I am majoring in Law and international Relations, am Khmer, and prefer essay entry format.

Hello!~ I'm Orange, I major in French and I'm now a sophomore student in Xiamen University, China. I like the idea of culture exchange and getting to know different people in the world, that's why i'm here. I'd like to write an essay - but as i'm quite adaptive it would also be ok to make a video - so the thing that matters now is for me to find a partner from USA. I like the movie 'v for vendetta' and 'cloud atlas' very much, I'm a person full of ideas, and for the contest, I'm thinking about stressing on 'transition'. if you're from USA and interested, my email is thank you, bye~!^~^

The Crack-Up: Dwight Eisenhower & the Road Trip that Changed America, with Brian C. Black

In 1919, a young Army officer named Dwight Eisenhower, along with a "Mad Max"-style military convoy, set out on a cross-country road trip to examine the nascent state of America's roads. Penn State Altoona's Professor Brian C. Black explains how this trip influenced Eisenhower's decisions decades later, both as general and president, and laid the groundwork for the rise of petroleum-based engines and the interstate highway system.

AI in the Arctic: Future Opportunities & Ethical Concerns, with Fritz Allhoff

How can artificial intelligence improve food security, medicine, and infrastructure in Arctic communities? What are some logistical, ethical, and governance challenges? Western Michigan's Professor Fritz Allhoff details the future of technology in this extreme environment, which is being made more accessible because of climate change. Plus he shares his thoughts on some open philosophical questions surrounding AI.

The Ethical Algorithm, with Michael Kearns

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. They have made our lives more efficient, yet are increasingly encroaching on our basic rights. UPenn's Professor Michael Kearns shares some ideas on how to better embed human principles into machine code without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.
