Under threat, education requires global action
We are in the age when gene-editing technologies are able to modify function and correct genetic defects to treat and prevent the spread of disease. Artificial Intelligence sets the foundation for machine learning now revolutionizing health care, transportation and financial services, among other industries. Stunning advances are flowing from robotics, quantum computing, augmented reality and computer-assisted everything. New technologies made it possible for the world to witness gorgeous vistas detailing the very birth of the cosmos billions of years ago. All of these developments sprout from basic education — seeding and cultivating the love of discovery, science and human curiosity scaffolded into transformational knowledge.
