The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Work and Education

March 23, 2023 at 6:00 p.m., EST
Raymond W. Kelly ’63 Student Commons, 5th Floor

Manhattan College is pleased to present a forum led by panelists in different industries using Artificial Intelligence (AI), along with members of the Boards of Advisors of our six schools, who are working professionals across a wide range of industries. Together, these industry experts will help all of us explore and better understand the Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Work and Education.

The forum will be moderated by Michael Grabowski, Ph.D., chair of the Communication department, who will ask the panelists a set of prepared questions, but will allow the conversation to be organic, based on contributions from the panel, the board of advisor members, and preselected questions from the audience. The event will be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing via the Manhattan College Youtube channel.

We believe that this event will be a highly valuable resource for helping everyone to better prepare for life with AI.

Artificial Intelligence Integration

Manhattan College has long offered courses and programs to prepare professionals in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Recent developments, particularly public access to ChatGPT and other AI engines, has resulted in much broader application of AI across campus and the world, as we all grapple with the implications and potential of AI in work, education and our lives.

Beginning in Fall 2023, all courses at Manhattan will be AI Aware, meaning all assignments and work have been carefully vetted to make sure they can't easily be completed solely by an AI engine, but involve student work and learning.

More importantly, a growing number of courses across the College will be designated AI Integrated, meaning students will be employing AI engines as part of their work and assignments and build on what AI has generated to create the finished product. In doing so, we believe students will be preparing to use AI productively and responsibly in their work and lives. 

We believe that AI engines are not an impediment to learning, but a powerful new tool that will change our work and lives, and must, therefore change education.
