This week on Technotopia I talked to Neeraj Bansal the co-founder of education startup Simversity. He has a deep understanding of what it takes to build an online education platform and he also notes that the only jobs worth having in the future are the ones that can’t be replaced by machine learning.
Education right now, he says, is a form of data replication. But when computers and wearables are able to solve everything but the most complex problems for us why do we need to learn the basics when we could focus on more in-depth study? The answer is obviously still unclear but it’s fascinating to think about just where we’re headed in the next twenty years of learning.
