Time to embrace AI in college classroom

Concern about the dangers of artificial intelligence is growing stronger every day

generating visions of “The Terminator” and an AI takeover of the world.

AI has been around since the 1950s but recently we see an infusion of AI technologies in our daily lives

think about your smart thermostat

home assistants like Alexa or your cleaning robot

However, the launch of AI systems capable of generating content

like ChatGPT and DALL-E, has ramped up discussions in universities across the country.

ChatGPT and other AI tools should not be your enemy,

they can be used to radically improve our ability to solve problems and advance knowledge

While there are good reasons to be cautious

I believe it’s important to realize the good we can provide for our students

we can provide for our students by teaching them to use AI tools properly.
