Should colleges use AI in admissions?
While companies are eager to help colleges use AI to streamline admissions, the practice raises ethical concerns. Julia Stoyanovich, director at the Center for Responsible AI, advised colleges to steer clear of AI tools that claim to make predictions about social outcomes. “There’s no reason for us to believe that their pattern of speech or whether or not they look at the camera has anything to do with how good a student they are. Even if somehow we believe that there was a way to do this, we can’t check whether these machines work. We don’t know how somebody would have done who you didn’t admit,” said Stoyanovich.
