AI is too powerful for higher ed to ignore: Opinion

In an article for the evoLLLution, Gregory Crawford (Miami University) and David Seidl (MiamiU) urge leaders in higher education to carefully reflect on the implications–both positive and negative–of AI, underlining that the technology is too powerful to ignore. The authors acknowledge that AI begets fear in the higher education sector and raises concerns about ethics, plagiarism, and data; but so too does it foster opportunities by improving accessibility, simplifying repetitive tasks, and offering editing and ideation support. Crawford and Seidl state that AI is available and unavoidable, underlining that postsecondary leadership must learn to work alongside the new technology, rather than ban it.
