Wade Institute of Technology
While talent is universal, opportunity is not. The acute under-representation of African Americans in science, technology, engineering and mathematics is a national disgrace. Artificial intelligence offers historic, transformative liberating and empowering solutions to wide-ranging problems across industries, institutions, government and cultures. Yet, entrenched systemic biases remain. The systemic under-representation denies a diversity of voices and participation into shaping society’s future, and worse, deepening existing biases.
Here we describe how Wade Institute of Technology will assure a level of diversity and inclusive participation and development in the transformative computational data science. We solicit the support of major technology stakeholders and universities. We detail our ‘back-to-the-future’ roots and mission of public television: a station that first and foremost educates and informs by promoting the capacity of KMTP TV as an educational public television station. We also endeavor to entertain, inspire and motivate to action.
