MIT reshapes itself to shape the future



hey I is accelerating growth in virtually every field it's an ultimate disrupter computer science is making inroads to every academic discipline in every aspect of our lives the economy and society is really demanding people who understand this new domain of confusing and artificial intelligence our students recognize that computing is shaping the future and they're pushing for an education that sets the foundation for it MIT is making a bold announcement today mit is announcing the creation of the Stephen Schwarzman College of Computing that's a radical bold move by MIT to adjust and prepare the students of the day for the world of the future there is tremendous interest in understanding the ethical and societal implications of new technologies and particularly the technologies related to computing and data I think it what excites me is that it's not just for advancing computer science but every aspect of computing in its interrelation with every academic discipline scholars and faculty from other departments will also be interacting with in shaping the tools that are being traded at the college so this is not a one-way street is a two-way street a collaborative effort in a new intellectual frontier a departments across the Institute have come to realize the computer science matters to them and other departments want to form joint programs with us so this is a sign of what's to come and shows you the reason why we need to become a college at MIT we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare our students to be leaders and to be leaders in addressing and solving the most important challenges the world is facing we have done that for generations and we will continue to do that and now more than ever we need to prepare students to understand the ethics and societal implications of these technologies advancements and that's the job that universities must my intent with this gift is to make the world a better place and make the United States a stronger country as it can be and bring prosperity and a good life to as many people as we can and we're in a unique time in history but we actually can do those things where the capability is there and it gives me real joy to be able to be part of that process

    Don't be fooled by their false marketing campaigns. It doesn't matter where you go to school, kids. Study hard. Lots of other schools are just as good and MIT won't prepare you for the real world but will leave you in huge debt and wondering how you made a bad decision. It starts with false marketing like this. State schools that focus on the basics and preparing you for the real world and practical skills will keep you miles ahead than going to this expensive school that isn't going to help you. I know because I graduated from there. I don't recommend it. It will set you back in learning the skills and courses you actually need to be marketable and competent in the real world. Until MIT changes for this real future and present reality, you are getting screwed, literally. Not a good school to go to for learning important practical skills that will land you the best jobs and help build your career in any field you go into. Go to an inexpensive school and study your butt off. Take every course offered. I can recommend some schools that blow MIT away but that's for you all to do research and find.

    Don't get fooled by this false marketing. MIT needs to shape up and get rid of their arrogance and their duping of so many applicants and students. Few graduates actually become engineers. Avoid this school. Save money and get a real education.

    MIT is only for future professors and scientists. Keep in mind few non white people land professor jobs in the USA. Further the debt students build up will keep them out of science and research forever. You are better off going to Harvard and even smarter if you go to a cheaper state school including with full scholarship.

    I'm very critical of MIT because I know they can do better and they should. It's important to all alumni and to future students. Right now, a prospective student should get a full scholarship to a state school. I've met more geniuses at state schools than I ever did at this school, which robbed so many of my friends and fellow alums. Get practical basic skills and a real education and avoid this school. Consider yourself lucky if you get rejected! There are plenty of brilliant people out there making huge changes in the world that never went to MIT. MIT is only for a handful of people and it's not for everyone. Be smart; Stay away. Go to a state school.

    World's largest private equity firm massively funding AI research. Looks like William Gibson wasn't far off.

    I want to apply this year to MIT, but when I think that thousands of people from different countries and backgrounds are doing the same I feel that I have no chance to make it.
    P.S I want to major in computer science, it's my dream.

    It is not so great that elite institutions are showered with money, while public universities are starved of funds. Funding should be more evenly distributed so that people outside of Ivy League also have a chance to succeed.
