The Michael Dukakis Institute and the Boston Global Forum Announce Strategic Alliance with AI World Government
AI World Government to focus on AI Ethics and AI-Government as Public Sector Deployment of AI

Boston, MA – December 4, 2018 – The Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation and the Boston Global Forum have announced that they will be a Strategic Alliance Host of the AI World Government Conference & Expo, being produced by Cambridge Innovation Institute. The event will be held on June 24-26, 2019 at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center in Washington, DC.

According to conference founder and chair, Eliot Weinman, “We are pleased to continue our collaboration with The Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation and their Boston Global Forum (BGF). Former Governor Michael Dukakis has been an innovative global visionary for decades. For the past several years the BGF has conferred with government, research and technology experts to develop a framework for governments around the world to develop the proper AI ethics regulations. BGF, which created the concept of AI-Government on June 25, 2018 at Harvard University, and organized the first AI-government conference at Harvard September 20, 2018, will jointly develop a dedicated conference on this topic at AI World Government on June 24, 2019. AI World and AI Trends will also publish the continuing results of their research for our global audience.”

AI World Government Conference & Expo provides a forum to educate and inform federal, state, and local governments on the many benefits of deploying AI technologies. These agencies are like public and private “enterprises”, which AI World is established and known for. The government application of AI is already in its early adoption period and has been deployed in a wide variety of applications that have shown benefits. As AI continues to evolve at a rapid pace, the next generation of deployment will enable government agencies to:

• Provide better and enhanced services to its constituents
• Increase productivity and reduce costs
• Accelerate the overall digital transformation efforts underway throughout government agencies
• Introduce an AI-Government model

AI World Government is also the backdrop for shaping the discussion around ethics, safety, and regulatory requirements for machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, image and pattern recognition, and emerging intelligent automation solutions.

According to Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO of the Boston Global Forum (BGF), “We have been collaborating with Mr. Weinman and his team at AI World throughout 2018 to support the event as an International Host. We have several activities already underway at AI World 2018, and will continue our strategic alliance for all AI World 2019 events. We will present an AI-Government model at AI World Government.”

Pro History 360 — A Grand Vision for America

A powerful community-wide SOLUTION to a seemingly intractable issue…that connects the ups & downs of American history to the more hopeful future we all desire

This comprehensive, ever-expanding project is a gateway to the solution…designed to address the needs of the NFL players, the NFL team owners, the advertisers, the fans and community leaders.”

— Joel A. Freeman, Ph.D.

NEW YORK, NY, US, December 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For every protest there is a SOLUTION. And Dr. Joel Freeman has designed a solution to address the concerns of the NFL players, team owners, advertisers and the fans.

Imagine students (K-12) within a 30-mile radius of every NFL arena being positively impacted EVERY YEAR by Pro History 360 – along with the involvement of local police and NFL players.

A GRAND VISION FOR AMERICA.. Comprehensive. Long-Term. Sustainable. Ever-Expanding. Transformational. Hopeful. Educational. Solutional.

ACTION: Contact Dr. Freeman and ask for a copy of his proposal for the NFL. He is wide open to talk once you have read his 15-page proposal (available upon request).

Well over 150 years ago Frederick Douglass stated: “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will….If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”

For the last four centuries our country has struggled with powerful issues surrounding race relations. And now those issues have spilled over into our NFL stadiums.

Joel Freeman served for 20 seasons in player development as the mentor/chaplain for the NBA Washington Bullets (now the Wizards). He also owns a comprehensive Black History collection.

As a result of talking with many people on all sides of the issues, Joel Freeman has developed a comprehensive proposal for addressing the peaceful protest many NFL players have expressed by kneeling during the National Anthem.

So, what is Pro History 360? — www.ProHistory360.com

It’s a sustainable, long-term, ever-expanding and transformational project that provides a 360 degree perspective on race relations in America — through the gateway of culture, history and meaningful conversations.

Think of Dr. Freeman's proposed solution as a GATEWAY to more problem-solving layers — even when kneeling in the NFL no longer seems to be grabbing the headlines. A solution worth considering.

ACTION: If you are an NFL player (current or retired), if you own or work for an NFL team franchise, or someone who is interested in this issue…contact Dr. Freeman today at 410-991-9718.

Upon your request, Joel will email you a free comprehensive solution that provides a common-sense, well-designed, sustainable and ever-expanding pathway for the NFL owners & players to lead in this important issue.

American Energy Society selects Nathaniel Rich as “Energy Writer of the Year, 2018"

Nathaniel Rich

The premier literary award for energy

The professional network for energy

The premier literary award for the energy sector.

What set Mr. Rich’s work apart and makes him the clear choice for "Energy Writer of the Year – 2018" is his balanced, contextual treatment of a highly controversial issue.”

— Eric Vettel, Ph.D., President – American Energy Society

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Palo Alto, Calif. – December 4, 2018 – American Energy Society is pleased to announce that it has selected Nathaniel Rich as the "Energy Writer of the Year, 2018." The Society took special note of his article, “Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change” (New York Times Magazine, August 1, 2018). The 31,000-word piece weaves together a narrative about a critical ten-year period, 1979 to 1989, when science, politics and industry awoke to the fact that rising greenhouse gases posed an existential threat. Rich documents how and why this great awakening failed to translate to action despite universal and bipartisan acceptance of the problem. Accompanying aerial photographs and videos by George Steinmetz supports the thesis with a vivid display of disturbing images. Tucked into a prodigious amount of material is the story of the key figures who turned climate change into a major political issue. In the late 1970s, few Washington officials knew much of anything about global warming; by the end of the ‘80s, President George H.W. Bush almost signed a United Nations treaty to address it. Mr. Rich writes with gripping, novelistic detail and captures the tragicomedy of scientists struggling — and failing — to shape the political sphere.

According to Eric Vettel, President of American Energy Society, “The topic of energy in 2018 captured the attention of many talented writers and the AES editorial board had to consider a number of worthy candidates. What sets Mr. Rich’s work apart and makes him the clear choice for Energy Writer of the Year, 2018, is his balanced, contextual treatment of a highly controversial issue.”

In recognizing Mr. Rich, the AES Editorial Board recognizes the necessity of addressing some of the criticism directed at Losing Earth, noting: “Nathaniel Rich has written a thoughtful essay, and it deserved equally thoughtful consideration. Instead, criticism – especially from the center-left – fixated on the absence of an identifiable antihero. In particular, The Atlantic Monthly, founded by legendary existentialists who were not afraid to look inward, piled on Mr. Rich by pointing out a list of villains they think are to blame for the changing climate, apparently unaware that their own periodical was founded as a counter to such overly simplistic thinking.”

There are many ways to summarize the problem that Mr. Rich effectively captures in his thought-provoking essay. Mr. Rich himself noted in an interview with The Energy Gang that “the level of political will required to initiate action in a substantial way is really lacking, and I guess in that sense, political will is human will. We will have to get there eventually because of the level of devastation that is coming…. If we understand the nature of the problems and our own limitations – personal, social, political – we will then be able to grapple with this in a serious way at the level required to initiate major transformation, because transformation is coming, one way or the other. The only question is how involved are we going to be.”

Perhaps it is most apt to compare the present existential crisis documented by Mr. Rich to Thomas Jefferson’s equally upsetting remark about slavery, one of humanity’s first great crimes: “as it is, we have the wolf by the ear, and we can neither hold him, nor safely let him go.” Mr. Rich is telling us that perhaps it is time to start thinking about the prospect of letting go.

About Nathaniel Rich: An alumnus of Yale University, where he studied literature, Mr. Rich is the author of many essays for Vanity Fair, Harper's Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Slate, as well as novels such as Odds Against Tomorrow (2013) and non-fiction books like San Francisco Noir, named one of the best books of 2005 by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Previous winners:
– 2017: Meghan O’Sullivan, Windfall: How the New Energy Abundance Upends Global Politics and Strengthens America's Power.
– 2016: Mark Mills: “Shale 2.0”.
