Artificial intelligence has transformed many industries such as manufacturing, corporations and retail, and now traditional challenges and universities are being challenged, as they need to prepare for a “technology-enabled” future. In the present moment, universities and traditional colleges are worried about competition derived from academic institutions that are using online learning technologies. Dr. Subhash Kak, a Regents Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering from Oklahoma State University, noted that online education is serious: a “disruptive challenge.”  One of the most powerful aspects of his article, which was published in The Conversation, dealt with the ever-changing job market. He makes a very valid point in that the number of jobs that involves cognitive and physical skills is diminishing, especially since automation at factories is replacing actual workers all around the world; moreover, artificial intelligence is eliminating high-skill jobs in offices.
