Can AI play a part in keeping schools safe? 🙌

What’s new? Utah schools are taking a proactive approach to enhance safety by implementing AI software, ZeroEyes, designed to detect firearms before potential threats materialize.

How does it work? ZeroEyes uses AI-powered object detection models trained on thousands of weapon images. The technology integrates with existing school camera systems and, when it identifies a potential threat, swiftly transmits data to an operations center staffed by U.S. military and law enforcement veterans. If validated, alerts containing vital information are dispatched to local staff and law enforcement within three to five seconds.

How do schools use it? To participate, schools must apply for the software through a competitive process managed by AEGIX Global. The initiative is part of a $75 million school safety bill, with $3 million allocated specifically for gun-detection technology. While the implementation raises concerns about false alerts and privacy, ZeroEyes emphasizes its commitment to adherence to federal and state privacy laws.


Q: Why couldn’t the snake use Google?

A: It ate the mouse. 🐭

What’s going on? Reports suggest that Google might soon lay off around 30,000 employees, primarily in its ad sales division, as the company seeks to leverage AI for operational efficiency. Rumors are also circling about the loss of human jobs amidst integration of AI into customer care services.

Why? In May of 2023, Google announced AI-powered ads that feature “natural-language conversational experience within Google Ads, designed to jump-start campaign creation and simplify Search ads.” Google said its new AI could scan your website and “generate relevant and effective keywords, headlines, descriptions, images, and other assets,” making the Google Ads chatbot a perfect mix between a designer and sales expert. This implementation led to the firing of 12,000 employees. Recently, the head of ad sales for major accounts in the US, Sean Downey, hinted at another upcoming “reorganization” without explicitly mentioning layoffs.

What is the significance? These reports outline an important component of AI: the restructuring of jobs. What this will look like in 5,10, or 20 years, nobody knows. What we do know, however, is that things will look quite different than they do now. As Google CEO Sundar Pichai stated, “We have not faced a comparable juncture in 25 years.”


Q: Why is it bad to trust atoms?

A: They make up everything! 🧪

What’s new? Nobel Prize-winning economist Christopher Pissarides has delivered a cautionary message to the younger generation, advising against a blind rush into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields amidst the growth of AI.

What did he say? Pissarides contends that the very skills sought after today to propel AI development may render themselves obsolete as the technology evolves. He states that workers in certain IT jobs risk sowing their “own seeds of self-destruction.” Instead, Pissarides emphasizes the enduring importance of “empathetic and creative skills” in a world dominated by AI. He foresees that roles requiring face-to-face interaction, such as those in hospitality and healthcare, will maintain and increase upon their dominance in the job market. In his perspective, these roles offer a meaningful and stable alternative to the potential volatility of STEM careers tethered to rapidly advancing technology.
