Abstract: The maturation of artificial intelligence is transforming work and education at a rapid pace. How will the advances in human intelligence affect our lives in the future? How can machine learning and robotics be deployed to support, rather than detract from, student learning in college and from social welfare and human empowerment? Graduates of our educational institutions will shape our robot future and help us understand and manage the ethical implications of artificial intelligence. Promotion of technology fluency-the ability to be a developer and shaper, rather than merely a consumer, of these technologies is the key to student success and personal fulfillment in the decades of change ahead. In this talk, I will use McCabe's Keywords as grammar to understanding the ways in which AI interrogates our identity as humans and the ways in which we can prepare students for a challenging future.
