Wonderful article, I would add that perhaps the role of learning to be human is a GROUP endeavour. Too many business and other schools in Universities are focused on developing individuals. The future is collective and human systems are more Group-ish than solitary. It will be interesting to see more multidisciplinarity at Doctorate levels.

The impact of the AI seems to be that the humans who create them, seem to not wish to face the "dark side" of being human.
