  • Freerice is a nonprofit website that offers SAT vocabulary help as well as charity help.

  • If sci-fi films like "2001: A Space Odyssey," "I, Robot," "Wall-E" and "A.I." have taught us anything, it's that the smarter computers become, the more humanity is in danger. This nonprofit missed that memo. Dedicated to developing artificial intelligence since 1979, the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence sponsors conferences and symposiums that provide resources to artificial intelligence research.
