Rockville, Maryland – Sep 1st, 2020 – Faith Cheung, founder of the national teen run non-profit “Code A Wish”, is excited to announce that the best new release book author for “T-Minus AI”, Forbes 30 under 30, and Director of Operations, U.S. Air Force / MIT Artificial Intelligence, Mr. Michael Kanaan will be speaking to hundreds of teens this coming Friday on September 4th 2020 at 05:00 P.M. EST at their AI 101 Summer Virtual Conference. Space is limited and please follow this link to register.
Code A Wish was founded in 2019 by six high school students from the greater Washington, D.C. area and is dedicated to advocating for accessible education on the latest cutting edge technology to teens, especially those who are underprivileged and underserved. The organization has since expanded into other regions, states, and even countries. They held multiple programs in 2019 including the Future Summit, an incredibly successful technology conference with hundreds of teen attendees. In addition, to adapt to the pandemic, the leaders of the club have been enthusiastically and consistently running a virtual AI 101 series since the beginning of this summer and will conclude the virtual series with a virtual conference on August 14th, 2020. These virtual series have benefited hundreds of students across the nation who now have a fundamental understanding of AI and how they can be involved in developing such revolutionary technologies in their future careers. “I wish the virtual series can go on into the fall as I have learned so much and met so many other teens who got inspired,” said one of the participants among many others who have expressed a similar eagerness to continue the learning. To respond to the overwhelming demand, the Code A Wish national leadership team is planning to launch training programs for leaders across the nation to further the cause in the fall.
Mr. Kanaan’s new book received raves of reviews from top industry influencers. “Mike Kanaan is an influential new voice in the field of AI, and his thoughts paint an insightful perspective. A thought-provoking read.” Eric Schmidt, former CEO and executive chairman of Google. “Never have I read a book that did a better job of putting the challenges and prospects of artificial intelligence into context. It’s an exceptionally rich context, involving science, history, technology, and our current geopolitical situation. Reading this book will not only help you understand what AI is all about, it will help you understand how it fits into the world today and into the future.” Sean Carroll, theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology, host of Mindscape podcast, and New York Times bestselling author of Something Deeply Hidden. Mr. Kanaan is no stranger to Code A Wish. Back on Nov. 16th, 2019, Mr. Kanaan spoke as a keynote speaker to hundreds of high school students at their first the Future Summit. His speech on cutting edge AI flight system with the U.S. Air Force was eye opening. Many students received firsthand coaching on how they can start a career in AI and were inspired to begin their journey into the future of advanced computing. “We are extremely grateful to the time these technology leaders are willing to spend with this nation’s future leaders which are teenagers so that we have a chance to broaden our vision and be motivated to get into fields that seem to be unreachable to teens today,” said Faith Cheung, founder of the club. “We are looking forward to expanding this initiative to other parts of the nation to bring real life technology leaders to the lives of teens.”
