We live in a world fundamentally transformed by our own creations. Once imagined only in science fiction, artificial intelligence now powers much of the technology we interact with every day—from smart home devices to cognitive assistants to media recommenders. While subtle by design, the impact of AI is far-reaching.
The field of education is no less affected by these technologies. AI shows up in instructional chatbots, personalized learning systems and administrative tools. Continuing on this trajectory, there is likely to be no field or industry untouched by AI before long. And with this change comes a host of new questions—concerns about the ethical design and implementation of these new tools.
