Our automated world – where we speak to digital assistants and manoeuvre through space while our faces are recognised by ubiquitous cameras – has been made possible because of millions of hours of machine learning, whereby large data sets of meaningful information are inputted to establish protocols that seem “human-like”. What kind of education is this? What does it, in turn, teach us about ourselves? And what can humans learn from the strange processes of teaching machines about the world as it is, or, as it should be?
