The artificial intelligence (AI) revolution isn’t coming—it’s here.
Most of us are familiar with email filters, voice assistants, and chatbots. All are powered by AI. But it isn’t just on your phone or computer anymore. In Japan, AI-powered robots clean houses and schools, and have even transformed elder care. Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital is testing AI-powered machines to help detect, diagnose, and treat disease. In fact, 37% of organizations have “implemented AI in some form,” according to a 2019 Gartner survey—a staggering 270% increase in just four years.
But with rapid adoption come threats, such as racial profiling through facial recognition, the spread of deepfake videos, and robots automating humans out of their jobs. (Humans had been cleaning those Japanese houses and schools, after all.) A 2019 report by the Center for the Governance of AI found that the overwhelming majority of Americans—more than 80%—believe AI should be carefully managed. Even the Pope is concerned.
Training the next generation to be wise managers of a technology with so much potential—and peril—make AI education exceedingly important. And the United States is at risk of falling behind.
But some educators are working to change that.
