Potato Chips Inspire Novel Method for Water-Splitting

Finding clean energy sources will be a key to mitigating climate change in the 21st century. Recent work at Northwestern University could be part of the solution, and the result was inspired by a lowly lunchbox treat - the potato chip https://www.mccormick.northwestern.edu/news/articles/2021/03/potato-chips-inspire-novel-method-for-water-splitting.html

The newly developed material’s structure maximizes active surface, just like the snack food, and could lead to a cleaner way to produce hydrogen.

An expert at Harvard University says falling COVID-19 rates, rising vaccinations, and timing may hamper mutations like the one that fueled a surge of cases in Great Britain https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2021/02/u-s-may-miss-surge-from-variant-that-sent-britain-reeling

A Harvard epidemiologist said the forces of seasonality, slowly rising immunity, and shifting personal behavior will likely create a viral variant landscape with regional spikes in the months to come rather than a uniform national wave.

https://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/4720 Call for Chapters Proposals Submission Deadline: September 14, 2020 Full Chapters Due: November 1, 2020 Introduction The distribution of altered or false information is certainly not a new concept in advertisement, news reporting, and politics. One does not have to venture too far in the immediate past to find examples of how advertising executives, news anchors, field reporters, and politicians have intentionally manipulated data, facts, and events to promote one agenda or viewpoint over another. With the continued rise in the use of social media, online media, and mass communication outlets to distribute information and news, a new type of disinformation has emerged known as the "deep fake". Deep fakes can assume many forms, but the basic definition is that of manipulating audio, images, or video using some form of Artificial Intelligence. For educators and researchers, particularly those in higher education, deep fakes are problematic in terms of ensuring students are receiving accurate information in terms of completing key assignments, tasks, and research. Choosing the right technologies to match student learning outcomes in today's technology-integrated classrooms presents educators and instructional designers with multiple curricula and instructional design challenges including selecting appropriate technologies to match desired student learning outcomes. As students continue to have broad access to information from a variety of web-based platforms, educators and educational professionals are increasingly tasked with ensuring the information used to complete key assignments or tasks is authentic and from a verifiable resource. As such, the era of deep fakes in images, audios, videos, and digital texts is more prevalent than ever as numerous programs using Artificial Intelligence (AI) can significantly alter original content to fundamentally change the intent of original content. Because many of these AI-based programs are more user-friendly and easily accessible on the internet or mobile devices in a free or relatively inexpensive app, an increase in deep fake content is particularly noticeable within the last decade. Accordingly, educators and educational professionals are now tasked with employing best practices to not only teach basic digital literacy and citizenship skills but also recognize how technology immersed learning environments interact with deep fakes while equipping students with the tools necessary to recognize authentic and altered content. Objective One of the hallmarks of public education is access to relevant materials and resources that accurately reflect instructional content and anticipated student learning outcomes. For teaching faculty, it is of critical importance that the information students have access to and use to complete content-related tasks is sourced from legitimate, vetted resources accurately reflecting the desired information the student means to convey. However, a growing trend across the Internet is the deliberate misrepresentation of otherwise factual information to sway an end-user to adopt a position or line of thinking that may support their position or act in counter thereof. Manipulating images and text to deliberately misinform or mislead the intended audience, or the rising phenomenon known as deep fakes, has definitely impacted areas such as advertisement, politics, and social media. As research about the effects of deep fakes in these areas has risen significantly over the past few years, especially noted during their intense saturation during the 2016 election cycle, understanding how deep fakes have the potential of negatively affecting the fields of teaching and learning presents as an investigative area in need of significant exploration. Accordingly, the purpose of the query here is to understand the history of deep fakes, their proliferation across mainstream and social media outlets, and the extent of their permeation in classrooms and curricula across educational settings.

Authors will be notified by September 2, 2020 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by November 1, 2020, and all interested authors must consult the guidelines for manuscript submissions at http://www.igi-global.com/publish/contributor-resources/before-you-write/ prior to submission. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project. Note: There are no submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book publication, Handbook of Research on the Impact of Deep Fakes in Teaching and Learning Technologies. All manuscripts are accepted based on a double-blind peer review editorial process. All proposals should be submitted through the eEditorial Discovery®TM online submission manager.
