Commentary by Stephen Downes

As I was reading this overview (12 page PDF) it occurred to me that despite all the attention being paid to learning analytics the major impact of analytics and machine learning in academic institutions will be in much more mundane areas: the physical plant, facility allocations, faculty workload allocations, and the like. The traditional academic institution is like a factory, and so the first applications of AI will be factory-like applications. That thought aside, this report is well worth the read. It's accurate, it's compelling, and it has useful data points.
