Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, employment, robotics/AI

Surveys from business leaders show that they are now doing mass layoffs due to adoption of AI.

A recent survey of 750 business leaders reveals a growing trend: AI replacing jobs. In 2023, 37% of these leaders acknowledged AI-induced layoffs, with 44% expecting more in 2024. Major companies like Paytm and Google are at the forefront, integrating AI to enhance efficiency but at the cost of human jobs. Paytm’s recent layoffs post AI implementation and Google’s potential restructuring of its ad sales unit due to AI advancements highlight this shift.\

Prepare Our Kids for Life, Not Standardized Tests | Ted Dintersmith | TEDxFargo

Posted by in categories: economics, education, employment, finance, physics, robotics/AI

As a leading venture capitalist, Ted Dintersmith lived and breathed the world of innovation. He has seen first-hand how quickly automation is eliminating the structured jobs in our economy, as well as the opportunities for young adults who are bold, creative, and entrepreneurial. As Ted shifted his focus to the future of our schools, he realized that the core purpose of our schools has been lost in a wave of testing, data, and accountability. In this talk, Ted underscores the potential for our kids and our country if we educate to our innovative and creative strengths, and trust our schools and teachers to prepare our kids for life, instead of for standardized tests.

After a twenty-five year career in venture capital, Ted Dintersmith is now focused on issues at the intersection of innovation and education. In the fall of 2012, Ted served as part of the delegation representing the United States at the United Nations General Assembly, where he focused on global education and entrepreneurship. The first two films he executive produced – Most Likely To Succeed and The Hunting Ground – premiered at Sundance, 2015. His website http://www.edu21c.com describes his initiatives and he can be followed @dintersmith.

Coal-producing West Virginia is converting an entire school system to solar power

Posted by in categories: climatology, education, employment, health, law

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — An entire county school system in coal-producing West Virginia is going solar, representing what a developer and U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin’s office touted on Wednesday as the biggest-ever single demonstration of sun-powered renewable electricity in Appalachian public schools.

The agreement between Wayne County Schools and West Virginian solar installer and developer Solar Holler builds on historic investments in coal communities made possible by the Inflation Reduction Act, which Democratic Sen. Manchin had a major role in shaping as chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Manchin, who announced this month that he wouldn’t run for reelection in the deep-red state, citing an increasingly polarized political system, was quick Wednesday to tout U.S. President Joe Biden’s 2022 landmark climate, health and tax law, which placed special emphasis on creating new clean energy jobs.
