Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence
The 7th Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI'17, co-chaired by Sven Koenig and Eric Eaton) launched the EAAI New and Future AI Educator Program to support the training of early-career university faculty, secondary school faculty, and future educators (PhD candidates or postdocs who intend a career in academia). As part of the program, awardees were asked to address one of the following “blue sky” questions: 1. How could/should Artificial Intelligence (AI) courses incorporate ethics into the curriculum? 2. How could we teach AI topics at an early undergraduate ora secondary school level? 3. AI has the potential for broad impact to numerous disciplines. How could we make AI education more interdisciplinary, specifically to benefit non-engineering fields? This paper is a collection of their responses, intended to help motivate discussion around these issues in AI education.
