The United States has undergone several major transformations economically, politically, and socially. Today, the impact of artificial intelligence will bring another transformation affecting citizens’ private lives as well as employment, communication, politics, and almost every other aspect of life.
The question artificial intelligence raises is: what kind of education will students need in confronting the obvious and projected impact of technology? Transformations affect obvious aspects of life, but also raise significant issues that challenge values, ethics and standards.
The purpose of this book is to define the role of education and its goals, content, and approaches that will assist citizens in addressing the challenges the artificial intelligence movement brings to the life of citizens. Positive aspects of the transformation include communication, productivity, and other issues. However, there are hazards and downsides to artificial intelligence that must be addressed through an educated society.
Education’s role encompasses assisting individuals to address the positive and negative aspects of any creative intervention. Thinking coupled with insight into principles, ethics, and the meaning of life are critical. Education prepares individuals for changing times in order to protect their freedoms and democracy and find a life of purpose and meaning.
