Higher education has adapted slowest to artificial intelligence (AI), according to Tyler Cowen, economics professor at George Mason University. Cowen also spoke on how job scarcity stands due to AI and how country-by-country it has become an arms race.
“We stand at a very unusual moment in human history,” Cowen said. “For the first time, I think ever, human beings actually have created a different kind of intelligence.”
Aside from teaching at George Mason since 1989 and serving as department chair since 2000, Cowen is an economics blogger and opinion columnist published in several publications, including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
