Failure to respond to AI’s advance could leave higher ed in a “frog soup”: Editorial


AI technology’s recent leaps forward have left many postsecondary professionals stunned, but John Gill writes that a failure to respond could leave a postsecondary institution in the position of a “slowly boiled frog, unable to spot the danger before it turns into green soup.” Gill interviews industry representatives about the way digital transformation has progressed and discusses the importance of taking advantage of the opportunities presented by these transformations. “Whether change is gradual or sudden, the key is not to be left behind: to be alive to both the threats and the opportunities, while taking care not to get caught up in hype, nor fall victim to complacency,” concludes Gill.
