Cal State San Bernardino has received a $100,000 grant that it will use to promote artificial intelligence among undergraduate students. The funding, from the National Science Foundation, is part of a “team grant” that was also awarded to San Jose State, Cal Poly Pomona, Long Beach State and the California State University Chancellor’s Office.
“We hope to promote AI education for non-computer science majors,” said Yunfei Hou, an associate professor in CSUSB’s School of Computer Science and Engineering. “The students will learn how to propose AI-powered solutions to address social issues considering both benefits and risks.”

Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, was quoted in an article about the assault on Paul Pelosi, husband of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, late last week in the couple’s San Francisco home, and how it can be seen as an extension of the Jan. 6, 2021, siege of the U.S. Capitol.
“The bottom line is, in our research, hate crimes have been going up every year, threats against members of Congress and other elected officials are going up, and the invective online goes up,” says Levin.
He adds that there’s a “seasonality to these plots, threats, and attacks,” often taking place around major political events.

The news site’s coverage on the attack on Paul Pelosi, husband of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, included a quote from Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle.
“The more you are untethered from the communal institutions that hold us together, the easier it is to do a dance step to the other side, because they share a distrust of institutions and processes,” Levin told the San Francisco Chronicle.
