Excerpt:

The question of artificial intelligence in education is not really one of “if” but of “when.” It is projected by The World Economic Forum that by 2020, at least 5 million jobs worldwide will be automated. With computers taking over more jobs, it is imperative that we become advanced at building and interacting with software tools. To this end, President Obama has made a conscious effort to incorporate computer science courses for all U.S. students. If humans are no longer doing the jobs, perhaps they can invent the technology that does. This tech literacy is vital to the future economy but the implications are a bit overwhelming if you really stop to think.

    The question I need answering is: not all people in the world have the mental capacity to ‘create’ something vital for the world. These are the ones who will lose their jobs, not the ones who are studying computer science. So what happens to them? Someone once told me that they would be doing all the coding…..yeah right….somehow I don’t think so. I do think there will be an emergence of something new that these people will focus on. What I’m not sure yet.

    I agree. The world of the future will need to be different. Coding is not my thing either.
