The GSV Big 10: Ratatouille’s Revenge
AI Avengers, Tyton's top ten, academic gender gap...
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Higher Ed is under siege on a number of fronts, but the foremost concern lies in understanding the implications of Generative AI for the future of learning. ASU, once again, is embracing the future and is obsessed with creating quality education at scale.
