Robot-proof: Higher education in the age of artificial intelligence – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise6th July 2019
Today, nearly every conversation about the future of work and the modern economy is dominated by the specter of robotics and intelligent machines. In his new book, “Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” (MIT Press, 2017), Northeastern University President Joseph E. Aoun confronts the need for colleges and universities to meet the challenge — and opportunity — presented by smart machines. His blueprint features three primary components: a new curriculum for the artificial intelligence age, the case for experiential learning, and a call for higher education to place lifelong learning at the heart of the educational enterprise.
Join AEI for a discussion on the key recommendations from Dr. Aoun’s book and the implications for the future of higher education and human capital development.
Join the conversation on social media with @AEI on Twitter and Facebook.
