Book Description

Augmented Education in the Global Age: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Learning and Work is an edited collection that explores the impact of Artificial Intelligence on learning and work, and how this emerging technology will transform and disrupt our current 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 new economic and labor opportunities in the evolution of industries. Chapter authors unpack the nature of augmented education, from revamping curriculum and personalizing education, to redesigning learning spaces and redefining teaching in a computational era. Ultimately the book discusses policy and planning for an augmented future, arguing that education systems are undergoing a metamorphosis and will need to adapt in order to support competitive labor systems amid global competition and the race against automating technologies. Bringing together expert perspectives from around the world, this is the exciting, informative collection of research and analysis surrounding the future of work and learning amid rapid, 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." 

- Dr. Christopher Ankersen, NYU Center for Global Affairs.

"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."
