MIT Enters the AI Game

MIT is entering the AI Game.

Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is spending $1 billion on a new college devoted to the study of artificial intelligence – both the technologies AI will help create, and the ethical challenges those creations will entail.

The takeaway? As AI continues to increase in popularity, and with elite institutions putting serious dollars behind the expansion of its academic study, could this even further the growth of computer science degrees, or even start creating a market demand for AI concentrations or standalone AI degrees? And if so, how can our institutions be first to these new markets?


May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
