Is AI a game-changer for higher ed? - eCampus News


According to a Northeastern University/Gallup poll, most Americans are optimistic about artificial intelligence's (AI) impact on their futures while, at the same time, expecting the net effect of AI to be an overall reduction in jobs. If we manage AI effectively, I believe it can be a net benefit to both society and the economy. The question is: How will higher education manage AI? Unfortunately, higher education does not have a reputation for managing change effectively. Our experience is much more one of coming late to the party--and not of our own accord. We cannot and should not do this with AI.
