CICS is proud to note that the May 2021 edition of the IEEE Future Directions includes a scholarly article written by students Christopher Nouhan, Noah Scott, and James Womack. The article, Emergent Role of Artificial Intelligence in Higher Education, was written with the encouragement and support of Dr. Steve Jones.
IEEE, pronounced “Eye-triple-E,” stands for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. However, as the world’s largest technical professional organization, IEEE’s membership has long been composed of engineers, scientists, and allied professionals. These include computer scientists, software developers, information technology professionals, physicists, medical doctors, and many others in addition to IEEE’s electrical and electronics engineering core.
According to the website, the purpose of the IEEE Future Directions publication is “to consider the reflection of technology through the lens of social implications a key tenant of its work as it incubates and promotes technologies“. Obviously an important topic, the student paper submitted, according to Christopher Nouhan, “focuses on the ever-changing post-Covid-19 landscape of higher education and how technological developments in artificial intelligence can support new ways of instruction“.
Nouhan goes on to say that he, Noah and James appreciate the encouragement not only of Dr. Jones but are grateful that CICS provides opportunities like this one to bridge the academic and professional landscape. “Something I frequently post about is the various opportunities that Ball State University – The Center for Information and Communication Sciences provides for its students to merge academic and professional landscapes. In every course, project, and assignment there lies an opportunity to leverage your experience and grasp it with a professional grip” states Nouhan.
