The White Papers

2024 White Paper Issue 02 – Ai In Our Lives

According to the "Oracle of Omaha," AI has developed to the point where it is hardly possible to decipher what's real and what's fake. In fact, AI is now also used for detecting AI-powered deepfakes around the rapid proliferation of AI-powered scams. Tech giant Microsoft recently introduced an authenticator tool that can analyze photos and videos to determine whether they have been manipulated.

2024 White Paper Issue 01 – Inclusion in Forensic Careers

Forensic Science has importance because it applies science research in the development and practice of highly discriminating, accurate, reliable, cost-effective, rapid methods for the identification, analysis and interpretation of physical evidence. A yearlong study examining ethnic and racial diversity in forensic science has found that the varying disciplines, which frequently work closely with law enforcement, are also generally whiter than the U.S. population it serves.

2023 White Paper Issue 03 – Is Digital Entertainment the Best Path to Digital Literacy

Digital entertainment innovation has demonstrated powers to complement, enrich and transform education. Certainly language, culture, and fashion have been influenced by the community of artists and their music (sic), but has the trend to incorporate digital platforms served as a pull through for students to become more interested in coding?

2023 White Paper Issue 02 – Time to Redesign Engineering

In May 1952, the president of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), S. C. Hollister, appointed a committee to look at the state of engineering education in the United States. The 1955 report, now commonly referred to as the Grinter Report, brought about a sea change in the training of engineers and became a foundational document for engineering education.

2023 White Paper Issue 01 – Golden Ring of Sports

We took a departure from STEM and education to a topic that is important because of its influence on education. Since many of our children end up in the bleachers and not on the playing field, how can the pressure of commercialism that culture and society embraces be better managed by parents and student athletes?

2022 White Paper Issue 04 – Battling Nature & Climate

Climate change is the long-term alteration of temperature and typical weather patterns in a place. Climate change could refer to a particular location or the planet as a whole. Climate change may cause weather patterns to be less predictable. These unexpected weather patterns can make it difficult to maintain and grow crops in regions that rely on farming because expected temperature and rainfall levels can no longer be relied on. Climate change has also been connected with other damaging weather events such as more frequent and more intense hurricanes, floods, downpours, and winter storms.

2022 White Paper Issue 03 – AI

What are we learning about AI technology and what is holds as its practitioners set our path forward? All these little digital assistants are helping us make purchasing choices, on relationships, who to hire, what to play to call, who to be our friends on Facebook, and who may most likely harm us. We have become desensitized to what algorithms can do if not better understood and managed.

2022 White Paper Issue 02 – DEI

A Message from the Editorial Review Board... Companies, organizations, and universities are recruiting or bringing in consultants to improve Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Are results reactive, or likely to fizzle over time and may harm employees from marginalized groups by affirming currently held norms? Can we anticipate more accountability as tech workers and others demand leaders make good on their promises for more representation, inclusion, and equity within organizations? Will DEI 2.0 do what is needed?
