For a crime he committed in his early twenties, the courts sentenced Marlon Peterson to 10 years in prison -- and, as he says, a lifetime of irrelevance. While behind bars, Peterson found redemption through a penpal mentorship program with students from Brooklyn. In this brave talk, he reminds us why we should invest in the humanity of those people society would like to disregard and discard. Watch »

Quote of the Week


Soon, machines will be taxi drivers and doctors and professors, but will they be 'intelligent?' I would rather leave these definitions to the philosophers and to the dictionary. What really matters is how we humans feel about living and working with these machines."

Garry Kasparov
Don't fear intelligent machines. Work with them
