What we talk about when we talk about machines...


"One of the things that I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about is how we train our students to think of AI or the machine as a team member rather than as a competitive threat. [...] I think there’s a competitive advantage to being human. Given that the level of ambiguity is amplifying and the rate of change is increasing, what do people have to be equipped with? What tools do they need? We don’t talk to them about that now. [...] We should."

--Betsy Ziegler, Chief Innovation Officer, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University

  • At your school, are teachers talking to students--and parents--about how to understand "the new magic" of this exponential age?
