Artificial Intelligence Goes to College (During a Pandemic) is a remote talk about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is moving us closer to a world without work. What does that mean for higher education institutions and their mission in the new “gig” economy? Higher education will be transformed into a place where we learn to work with AI and AI improves by learning from people. Dr. David Staley, director of the Humanities Institute and an associate professor in the departments of History, Design and Educational Studies at the Ohio State University, will discuss how the university of the future will have people and AI attending school together and how the current pandemic (and even future pandemics) will impact this transformation.

Dr. David Staley's research interests include digital history, historical methodology, and the history and future of higher education. He has published widely on the intersection of technology and scholarship. He is the author of:

* Alternative Universities: Speculative Design for Innovation in Higher
Education, Computers, Visualization and History;
* History and Future: Using Historical Thinking to Imagine the Future;
* Brain, Mind and Internet: A Deep History and Future.

He serves as President of Columbus Futurists, host of Creative Mornings Columbus and the podcast "Voices of Excellence". In addition to his written works, Dr. Staley writes articles and lectures about the concerns of AI from the Columbus Dispatch, Tedx Columbus, to the Singularity University.
