Abstract: The 7th Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI'17, co-chaired by Sven Koenig and Eric Eaton) launched the EAAI New and Future AI Educator Program to support the training of early-career university faculty, secondary school faculty, and future educators (PhD candidates or postdocs who intend a career in academia). As part of the program, awardees were asked to address one of the following 'blue sky' questions: 1. How could/should Artificial Intelligence (AI) courses incorporate ethics into the curriculum? 2. How could we teach AI topics at an early undergraduate or a secondary school level? 3. AI has the potential for broad impact on numerous disciplines. How could we make AI education more interdisciplinary, specifically to benefit non-engineering fields? This paper is a collection of their responses, intended to help motivate discussion around these issues in AI education.
