    Augmented Education in the Global Age: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Learning and Work is an edited collection that explores the social impact of Artificial Intelligence over the coming decades, specifically how this emerging technology will transform and disrupt our contemporary institutions. Chapters in this book discuss the history of technological revolutions and consider the anxieties and social challenges of lost occupations, as well as the evolution of new industries overlapping robotics, biotechnology, space exploration, and clean energy. Chapter authors unpack the nature of augmented education, from revamping curriculum and personalizing education, to redesigning workplace learning for an algorithmic era. Ultimately the book discusses policy and planning for an augmented future, arguing that work and learning are undergoing a metamorphosis around creativity and innovation amid a new global era and the race against automating technologies. Bringing together expert perspectives from around the world, this exciting, informative collection of research and analysis helps educators, policymakers and analysts navigate the future of work and learning amid rapid and accelerating technological change.

    "In Augmented Education in the Global Age, Daniel Araya and Peter Marber chronicle AI's astonishing disruption of social life. They shine a much needed light on AI's tectonic impact on how we work, which will, in turn, have a significant effect on how we learn. The volume is an extended interrogation, filled with vital questions concerning a future where augmented intellect is a reality with which we will need to be reconciled. With an extraordinarily diverse range of contributors, the volume explores not only how humans and new technologies will collaborate more closely in the coming years, but also what those collaborations will portend for industry, power, and what it means to be human."

    "Araya and Marber have assembled a wide range of insights into the future of work and education amidst the rise of artificial intelligence --an obvious 'gray rhino' phenomenon heading straight at us and giving us a choice act wisely or not. This important compilation is a must read for anyone who cares about strategic planning that can both avert the economic and social risks that come with AI and harness its power for positive progress."
