Helen Beetham is someone with whom I routinely disagree, which makes her a valuable foil for my thinking on education and artificial intelligence. In the current case, I think we have a common starting point: the idea of a simple concept of 'intelligence', as measured by (say) 'intelligence tests', is unhelpful, and very likely to lead to problematic and discrinminatory assessments of people and their potential. This was true before artificial intelligence became so prominent, and continues to be so. What follows in Beetham's post is a long list of ways the biases and prejudices of the people currently building AI are bad, but it is a discussion (to my mind) that needs more recommendations and less in the way of "we don't like these people".
