WH Accuses DeSantis of Cancel Culture Over His So-Called 'Dystopian' Parental Rights Law
Sarah Arnold / Townhall Tipsheet
The Biden White House condemned Gov. Ron DeSantis's (R-Fla) "dystopian" Florida education law. 

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre accused Florida of censoring education as a form of cancel culture, calling Republicans hypocrites. 

"Under threat of having their licenses revoked, gay teachers have been forced to take down pictures of their spouses from their desks and censor their classroom materials," Jean-Pierre said. "Censoring our classes is not how public education is supposed to work in a free country."

Earlier this week, DeSantis secured a win by approving a ban on classroom instruction about sexual orientation and gender identity in all grades. Previously, the ban was kindergarten through third grade.

Pentagon moving to ensure human control so AI doesn't ‘make the decision for us’
One official said CENTCOM sees AI as a 'light switch' to help illuminate the correct decision
The U.S. military is embracing artificial intelligence as a tool for quickly digesting data and helping leaders make the right decision – and not to make those decisions for the humans in charge, according to two top AI advisors in U.S. Central Command.

CENTCOM, which is tasked with safeguarding U.S. national security in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, just hired Dr. Andrew Moore as its first AI advisor. Moore is the former director of Google Cloud AI and former dean of the Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science, and he’ll be working with Schuyler Moore, CENTCOM’s chief technology officer.

In an interview with Fox News Digital, they both agreed that while some are imagining AI-driven weapons, the U.S. military aims to keep humans in the decision-making seat, and using AI to assess massive amounts of data that helps the people sitting in those seats. Read more and see video here.
