  • 4. Abstract • Patterns of Change: Transformation of Higher Education From Service Science and Cognitive Systems Perspectives This talk will discuss the forces reshaping higher education from service science and cognitive systems perspectives, and presents an optimistic view of the likely outcome. These same forces are reshaping business and society globally. Higher education is just one of many interconnected service systems that make up our world. However, higher education is special in many ways. For most, higher education is the bridge to cross from youthful family life to meaningful service to society. Also, all great cities have a major university that includes the broad spectrum of human knowledge, concentrated in experts and an army of energetic students within typically a square mile region. Universities are increasingly startup engines for regional economic development and growth. Within two decades most people on the planet will have a smart phone (disrupted and reconfigured), including a personal cognitive system, which is both an expert professional coach and an executive assistant. Cloud, Big Data Analytics, Mobile, Social, Cognitive, Internet of Things and Humans provide the integrated platform for reframing the meaning of progress with universities, leading to an era of T- shaped professionals engaged in meaningful, creative cognitive sport. 6/18/2014 (c) 2014 IBM UP (University Programs) 4

  • 7. Questions & Framing • In 5-10-15-20 years, what will be different? – How will higher education have changed? – How will skills & jobs have changed? – How will business & society have changed? • Service science, a lens for looking at change – Capabilities & constraints – technology systems – Rights & responsibilities – rule systems – What is “lawful” (physical, social) change? 6/18/2014 (c) 2014 IBM UP (University Programs) 7
  • 8. What is meant by “lawful” • Physical interaction laws do not change* – However, innovations change the costs – Intel, IBM, OpenPOWER (computing costs) – AT&T, Corning, Cisco (communications costs) • Social interaction laws do change – And innovations change the costs – Google (Internet search) and copyright – Uber (ride sharing) and taxi regulations – Airbnb (home sharing) and rental regulations 6/18/2014 (c) 2014 IBM UP (University Programs) 8 * = of course, our understanding of physical laws does change, other caveats apply.
  • 9. Do any social interaction laws not change? Yes, mathematical truths! • Ricardo – Law of Comparative Advantage – Do a little more of what you do best (low cost) – Do a little less of what you do least well (high cost) – Learning curve effects in people, businesses, countries (interaction can be mutually beneficial) • Assumptions (On when to specialize…) – Entities can do multiple things at variable costs – Learning interaction is not zero cost transfer 6/18/2014 (c) 2014 IBM UP (University Programs) 9
  • 10. Service Science Preliminaries • Service Definition – Win-win (Non-Zero Sum) – Informal: Knowledge application for mutual benefits – Formal: Value co-creation and capability co-elevation – Context: Abstract-Entity-Interaction-Outcome- Universals (AEIOU) [Evolving Ecology of Nested- Networked Service System Entities] • Service Science in Brief (How to integrate…) – An emerging transdiscipline that borrows from all disciplines without replacing any of them – Short for Service Science, Management, Engineering, plus Design, Arts, Public Policy (SSME+DAPP) 6/18/2014 (c) 2014 IBM UP (University Programs) 10
  • 11. Who I am & my biases • Change is hard to make happen (“predict”) – My professional experiences • No shortage of useful things to do – I am very optimistic about the future • Better mechanisms needed – “Cognitive sport” & “improve weakest link” 6/18/2014 (c) 2014 IBM UP (University Programs) 11
  • 12. Universities and our future • The future is already here at universities, it is just not yet well distributed. – With apologies to Gibson/King • The best way to predict the future is to inspire the next generation of students to build it better. – With apologies to Kay/Engelbart

  • 88. AI Will Disrupt Higher Education • Our next move: My [Dr. Dyens deputy provost McGill University] proposal is to think of chess as an analogy for education. • Gary Kasparov, in the New York Review of Books… wrote: • The surprise came at the conclusion of the event. The winner was revealed to be not a grandmaster with a state-of-the-art PC but a pair of amateur American chess players using three computers at the same time. Their skill at manipulating and “coaching” their computers to look very deeply into positions effectively counteracted the superior chess understanding of their grandmaster opponents and the greater computational power of other participants. Weak human + machine + better process was superior to a strong computer alone and, more remarkably, superior to a strong human + machine + inferior process. 6/18/2014 (c) 2014 IBM UP (University Programs) 88
