What Should Students Learn About Artificial Intelligence?

From a New York Times story by Natasha Singer headlined “Hey, Alexa, What Should Students Learn About A.I.?”:

Rohit Prasad, a senior Amazon executive, had an urgent message for ninth and 10th graders at Dearborn STEM Academy, a public school in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood.

He had come to the school on a recent morning to observe an Amazon-sponsored lesson in artificial intelligence that teaches students how to program simple tasks for Alexa, Amazon’s voice-activated virtual assistant. And he assured the Dearborn students there would soon be millions of new jobs in A.I.
