West Metro Critical Thinking Club
TOPIC: "Staying Relevant in the Age of Robots and Artificial Intelligence". The workplace is in the midst of a technology revolution which is accelerating rapidly. Automation, robots and artificial intelligence are eliminating many jobs at all skills levels, but are creating some new jobs in the process. People who want good jobs will need strong higher order thinking skills and must engage in life-long learning so that they can transition smoothly between jobs in this dynamic marketplace. SPEAKER: David C. LaPorte, Ph.D. Professor: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics, The University of Minnesota - Minneapolis In 1983, Dr. LaPorte joined the faculty at the University of Minnesota. In 2003, he developed a course in critical evaluation of biochemical research, which brought him back to his passion for psychology. After the 2016 election, he decided that it was time to get politically involved. He’s advising candidates for the US House of Representatives and the Governor of Minnesota on the incorporation of higher order thinking into the educational system so that students can stay employed in the age of robots and artificial intelligence.
