 Here are some things that teachers of teens should explain first about Oren Etzioni and the Allen Institute of AI:

  • Oren Etzioni is a computer scientist who is interested in using artificial intelligence (AI) to solve real-world problems. He is the founder and CEO of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, a non-profit research institute that is dedicated to developing safe and beneficial AI.
  • The Allen Institute of AI is one of the leading research institutes in the world for AI. It has a team of world-renowned scientists who are working on a variety of AI projects, including natural language processing, machine learning, and computer vision.
  • The Allen Institute of AI is committed to making AI research accessible to the public. It has a number of educational resources, including a website, blog, and YouTube channel.

Here are some specific questions that teachers could ask their students to help them understand Oren Etzioni and the Allen Institute of AI:

  • What are some of the real-world problems that Oren Etzioni is interested in solving with AI?
  • What are some of the AI projects that the Allen Institute of AI is working on?
  • How does the Allen Institute of AI make AI research accessible to the public?
  • What are some of the ethical concerns about AI?

By answering these questions, teachers can help their students understand the work of Oren Etzioni and the Allen Institute of AI, and they can also help their students think critically about the ethical implications of AI.

Climate Modeling

Our goal is to improve the world’s understanding of climate change, its effects, and what can be done now. Better data and technologies will inform how we mitigate and adapt to global impacts, such as sea level rise, community destruction, and biodiversity loss.

Unacknowledgded Giant 2.1

Norman Macrae
Norman Macrae, Japan Order of Rising Sun with Gold Bars, CBE was a British economist, journalist and first author of internet generation (& 21st C youth economics), considered by some to have been one of the world's best forecasters when it came to economics and society -dad valued youth more than any economist or journalist or mass mediated public servant I have met- what were his methods?
Viscount Matt Ridley , long The Economist's Science editor, reminisces in 2010:on The Death of Optimism

When I joined the Economist in 1983, Norman Macrae was the deputy editor. He died last week at the age of 86. Soon after I joined the staff, a thing called a computer terminal appeared on my desk and my electric typewriter disappeared.

Mapping 3 billion new jobs- The book that launched the net generation
Around that time, Norman wrote a long article that became a book about the future. It was one of the strangest things I had ever read. Celebrating boundless optimism --
. This book explores the lovely future people could have if only all democrats made the right decisions.

Integrating a weird technological vision --
Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge. We'll have this portable object which is a television screen with first a typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be minaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984. ..
...The terminals will be used to access databases anywhere in the globe, and will become the brainworker's mobile place of work. Brainworkers, which will increasingly mean all workers, will be able to live in Tahiti if they want to and telecommute daily to the New York or Tokyo or Hamburg office through which they work. In the satellite age costs of transmission will not depend mainly on distance. And knowledge once digitalised can be replicated for use anywhere almost instantly.
and innovated a fresh economic perspective

online library of norman macrae - The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant

You need to look at converging 7 wonders of 10 times more economical, sustainable and heroic net generation every which way. For Norman's book looked at all of:

Leveraging optimal worldwide timing for change - back in 1984 :peace, energy, web as smart education and then smart commercial media, then cross-cultural goals then redesign banking and aid and healthcare and womens empowerment an public services and professions

Leveraging what is a regions greatest system conflict:
bangladesh : top-down aid and need to empower maximum bottom up diversity and resilience ti disasters but potentially highly fertile small land plots

Africa- need to end extraction by global corporations so find hi-trust leaders of industries africa can build iteslf

west - rotten media, pr lobbies, over-historic laws, rotten metrics as far as exponetial investment and collaboration across sub-states goes

japan and china- being celebrated by rest of world as creditor nations that need to lead worldwide youth's millennium goal investment and decisions

Leveraging gamechangers in each global market sector to integrate most massive whole truth purpose - what 7 billion people most want purpose of that sector to safely compound. Spotting ahead of time gamechangers - some of which will be last call for reversibility

Understanding how the greatest - goodwill's most multiplying heroes - of history provided clues on cross-cultural and borderless convergence. A different role for the world service public media

AI2 (Allen Institute of AI) & AI


Can you help me understand the relationship between the allen institue of AI and the Allen Institute?

The Allen Institute of AI (AI2) and the Allen Institute are two separate organizations that are both funded by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. The Allen Institute was founded in 2003 to advance scientific research in a variety of fields, including brain science, genetics, and artificial intelligence. The Allen Institute of AI was founded in 2013 to conduct research on artificial intelligence and its potential benefits and risks.

The two organizations have a close relationship. The Allen Institute of AI is a part of the Allen Institute, and it shares some of the same facilities and staff. However, the two organizations have separate leadership and separate research agendas.

The Allen Institute of AI is focused on developing safe and beneficial artificial intelligence. It is working on a variety of projects, including natural language processing, machine learning, and computer vision. The Allen Institute of AI is also committed to making AI research accessible to the public. It has a number of educational resources, including a website, blog, and YouTube channel.

The Allen Institute is focused on advancing scientific research in a variety of fields. It has made significant contributions to our understanding of the brain, genetics, and other areas of science. The Allen Institute is also committed to making scientific research accessible to the public. It has a number of educational resources, including a website, blog, and YouTube channel.

Both the Allen Institute of AI and the Allen Institute are doing important work that is helping to advance our understanding of science and technology. They are both committed to making their work accessible to the public, and they are both working to ensure that the benefits of science and technology are available to everyone.


Meet the individuals who make our work possible.

Allenites (what we call our employees) come from myriad of interesting backgrounds.
