Knowledge, Learning, Community

I raised the topic of AI-generated on-demand learning resources today, but was advised that, like automated cars, the technology was mostly promises and hot air. Fair enough. But, as it turns out, writing content is easier than driving a car, and in newsrooms today it's being used "to generate more coverage and deliver sections that are popular with readers but would be too labour-intensive for a human reporter to create." So I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the idea. It may take ten years (that's how far education lags news media) but it's pretty likely to be in our future.
