Preparing Students to Succeed in the A.I. Age

Dr. Joseph E. Aoun
President, Northeastern University

Today, nearly every conversation about the future of work and the modern economy is dominated by the specter of robotics and intelligent machines. Several studies forecast that up to half of the jobs we know today will disappear over the next 20 years—and countless new jobs will be created. In his new book, “Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence,Joseph E. Aoun confronts head on the need for colleges and universities to meet the challenge—and indeed the opportunity—presented by smart machines. The president of Northeastern University, Aoun will discuss his blueprint for higher education featuring three primary components: a new curriculum for the A.I. age; the case for experiential learning, the ideal delivery system for this new curriculum; and a clarion call for higher education to place lifelong learning at the heart of the educational enterprise.
