“I agree with all of Audrey Watters‘, Chris Gilliard’sAutumm Caines’ and Benjamin Doxtdator’s critiques on these topics (also: it’s scary how my Google docs app immediately recommended their websites when I started inserting the links here),” writes Maha Bali. She adds, “there tends to be a reduction of what a teacher’s role is.” Teaching “is about helping learners express themselves clearly and effectively with other human beings. What value is there in a machine giving students feedback?” She also expresses concern about inherent bias in AI and about human agency being replaced by AI-decision-making. And she’s concerned that computer scientists are forging ahead without regard to ethical discussions about their technology.
