AI education in the curricula of all disciplines
Neuroscientist Aldo Faisal shed light on the competition between developers who enable AI systems to communicate more and more like humans and those who build better and better systems for recognizing AI utterances. Like Jerry John Kponyo, however, he further differentiated the importance of transdisciplinarity: This must be reflected not only in development, but also in education, so that a basic understanding of AI is taught across all disciplines. Because, as Aldo emphasized, only those who know how a technology works, who understand its limits and its possibilities, will ultimately be able to fully trust it.
For me this is a great conclusion to our dialogue, which showed that Generative AI must be a collective and global endeavor, and that we have to act together to harness the potential of this technology while protecting against its pitfalls. It also showed that all of this requires trust, and that one of the most powerful ways to build this trust is education.
Finally, I would like to express my hope that formats like this can spark a discussion in society at large. The journey of generative AI has just begun, and only together, we can shape it for the benefit of all!
