Will AI Help Education or Ruin It? The Pitfalls and Possibilities of AI.




Artificial Intelligence (AI) is only as moral and as good as those who create it. Today, AI ethics thought-leader Joe Fatheree and I discuss this topic.

Without discussing the ethics of AI and its algorithms, we risk opening the ultimate Pandora’s box of technology problems when we should instead work to get hope out of the AI box and keep the demons that could misuse and abuse us locked away. I’m not too sure we currently have the moral capacity and knowledge of right and wrong to wisely use AI. Either way, AI is here and we can be part of the conversation or we can sit in the corner and say “Nah Nah Nah I can’t hear you” until AI hears us and builds a cage around our little corner from which we cannot escape because ultimately, the key to any technology is crafted by those who make themselves part of the conversation.
