Machine Learning and Human Intelligence: The Future of Education in the 21st Century
The development and application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is bringing imminent and rapid change to almost every aspect of life, with today’s children experiencing a very different life to that of their parents. To prepare people for the anticipated changes to their lives, we must ensure that our education and training is tuned to the new demands of the workplace and society. The landscape we must navigate is likely to be bumpy and there will be significant challenges, not least, those relating to ethics. Fundamental to success will be unpacking our relationship with the concept of Intelligence. In thinking about how AI will impact on education and what sorts of knowledge and skills future citizens will need, we therefore need to look beyond the current trends towards trying to identify the jobs and skills that the world will require to the core issue of what it means to be intelligent in an AI augmented world. However, there is value in synthesizing what experts have investigated with respect to how susceptible jobs are to computerization because this is an important element of the context within which we need to re-conceptualise human intelligence.
