This is a marvelous book, depicting an era where scientific work was far different than it is now. One did not need years of training or huge government investment to make a major discovery back then, but rather hard work and ingenuity. As an example, an amateur like William Hershel, a composer and instrument-maker could become the greatest astronomer of his generation.

Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence [Audiobook]

Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence [Audiobook] by Joseph E. Aoun
English | April 10th, 2018 | ASIN: B07BQZRXDC | MP3@64 kbps | 5 hrs 5 mins | 140.19 MB
Narrator: John Glouchevitch

In Robot-Proof, Northeastern University president Joseph Aoun proposes a way to educate the next generation of college students to invent, to create, and to discover - to fill needs in society that even the most sophisticated artificial intelligence agent cannot. A "robot-proof" education, Aoun argues, is not concerned solely with topping up students' minds with high-octane facts. Rather, it calibrates them with a creative mindset and the mental elasticity to invent, discover, or create something valuable to society - a scientific proof, a hip-hop recording, a web comic, a cure for cancer.
