KEEP IT SHARP

What is the name of the city that seven states in America have the same name as?

HERE'S SOMETHING INTERESTING

The AI vs. human debate centers around the question, "Will robots take away our jobs?" Elon Musk thinks we are already in an AI-controlled simulation, and the machines will take over. He even founded OpenAI to advocate for regulatory oversight on what he believes is the greatest threat to humanity. His logic - "Robots will be able to do everything better than us. ... I mean, all of us." 

On the other hand, Jack Ma believes that while AI will significantly reduce human workload, it will never replace us. "Computers only have chips; men have the heart. It's the heart where the wisdom comes from," says the billionaire founder of Alibaba. Should you be worried? No one can tell for sure, but Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies by Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom does paint a scary yet realistic picture of what an AI doomsday might have in store for humans.

OF ARTS AND ARTISTS

Amader skin (meaning “our skin”) is here to defy the unrealistic beauty standards instilled by our society. They share stories about skin struggles and their paths to acceptance. They are here to spread positivity and preach a simple message that there’s more to us beyond “our skin.”

"As an entrepreneur, I am never gonna give up, because that's the true attribute of an entrepreneur."

- Fahim Saleh (1986-2020)
