Build STEM Skills, but Don’t Neglect the Humanities

The recent debate about AI and the fantastic achievements of Science, Technology, Engineering Math (STEM) inspire awe.  In this 24 June 2015 blog for Harvard Business Review I argue for the need to add MA – Management and the Arts – to STEM, forming STEMMA.  I conclude with this claim:

“Our capacities for ethical decision-making, compassion, and creativity must also grow, along with our appreciation for humans’ need for connection, accomplishment, and meaning. Humans are not robots and neurons are not digital switches. It is through the humanities that we will increasingly recognize and build on what humans still uniquely are.”
