Eve Riskin, dean of undergraduate education at Stevens Institute of Technology, talks about the power of mentorship, diversity in excellence and what she, as an electrical engineer and computer scientist, thinks about the emergence of generative AI
In an episode last year with Ashok Goel, chief scientist at Georgia Tech’s Center for 21st Century Universities, we asked: Is AI in higher education worth the hype? It turns out that, yes, it is. Ashok is back to help us understand what the development of ChatGPT and other generative AI systems mean for teaching and learning and how they fit with the machine learning frameworks that were already in place. He also makes some predictions about how things will develop, including the arrival within five years of a university in which every operation is powered by AI.
