"Artificial Intelligence or Natural Stupidity? Deep Learning or Superficial Teaching?"

by Chan, Lap Ki; Pawlina, Wojciech (2020)


Robots with artificial intelligence and sensorimotor skills are surpassing humans in the performance of many tasks and doing so at a surprising pace. Many analyses have thus been done to identify the human jobs that are at risk of being replaced by robots (Frey and Osborne, 2013; Chui et al., 2016; Berriman and Hawksworth, 2017; Makridakis, 2017). At least according to one analysis, jobs in the wholesale and retail trades are at the highest risk, while those in education are at the lowest (Berriman and Hawksworth, 2017). It appears that we anatomy educators are safe for now, or are we?
