  • @stanford’s Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence brings together experts from disciplines ranging from economics to ethics to understand how AI can improve life around the world. I really enjoyed being a part of the launch on Monday.

  • Tomorrow is International Women's Day — a day when we celebrate the progress made by and for women. To celebrate, @melindafrenchgates is sharing a chapter from her new book, “The Moment of Lift,” about the lessons she’s learned from women around the world (link in bio).

  • North-Grand High School was once ranked among the worst schools in Chicago. Today, it’s among the best. That’s because North-Grand and the Network for College Success began working together to increase the number of freshmen who finish the year on-track. Just seven years later, 95 percent of its freshman are on-track to graduate (up from 76 percent).

  • One of the most surprising experiences for me last year was participating in a discussion group with a bunch of teenage boys at a high school in Chicago. Although some of the guys talked about typical teenage frustrations—a teacher was treating them unfairly, or they kept dying in a video game—others had tragic stories. One had just watched a family member go to jail. Another spoke about a friend who had been shot. It was inspiring to see these young men working on dealing with their anger much earlier than I did. I was touched by the respect they had for each other and the intimacy they allowed themselves. I left thinking: This is how every classroom in the world should feel.

  • The world keeps getting older, but Africa stays the same age. It sounds confusing, but it makes sense when you break it down.

  • In our 2019 Annual Letter (link in bio), we wrote about the things that have surprised us over the years. Some worry us. Others inspire us. All of them are moving us to action. We hope they do the same for you, because that’s how the world gets better.

  • Wherever I am in the world, I always love talking with students. I was inspired by the energy of the community at Queen Mary University of London.

  • I recently visited @harvard to learn more about robotics research. I saw some surprising inventions that challenge what we think of as robots. I wore one robot like a glove. Another you could pull on like a pair of pants. These incredible creations are powerful examples of the exciting innovation underway in the field of robotics. You can read more about them on my blog (link in bio).

  • There’s no doubt that Leonardo da Vinci was a genius. But what really set him apart was his sense of wonder and curiosity. I’m excited to share a project I’ve worked on to make it easier than ever to get to know his work. It’s a one-of-a-kind device called the Codescope that lets you explore the Codex Leicester, a notebook of Leonardo’s that I bought in 1994. If you’re interested in learning more about the project, I recently wrote about it on my blog.

  • I thought I was pretty good at teaching myself – until I read Tara Westover’s memoir “Educated.” Her ability to learn on her own blows mine right out of the water. I was thrilled to sit down with her to talk about the book. It’s the kind of read that I think everyone will enjoy, no matter what genre you usually pick up.
