Watch Live: Northeastern President Joseph E. Aoun discusses Robot-proof: Higher education in the age of artificial intelligence by Kevin Deane July 9, 2019 Share Mastodon Facebook LinkedIn Twitter The live event at AEI starts at 10:30 a.m. on July 10. Today, nearly every conversation about the future of work and the modern economy is dominated by the specter of robotics and intelligent machines. In his book, Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, Northeastern University President Joseph E. Aoun confronts the need for colleges and universities to meet the challenge—and opportunity—presented by smart machines. His blueprint features three primary components: a new curriculum for the artificial intelligence age, the case for experiential learning, and a call for higher education to place lifelong learning at the heart of the educational enterprise. Join the event here on this page on July 10 for a discussion on the key recommendations from Aoun’s book and the implications for the future of higher education and human capital development. You’ll be able to watch the live stream below at 10:30 a.m.
