The rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) has promoted the reform of higher education in the form of a technological revolution. The internal mechanism of the development of the higher education system and the intervention of the external environment have promoted the development of higher education with the times, and also brought opportunities and concerns for the development of higher education. In the era of AI, the thinking of teachers and students is weak, and the learning environment and mode change, resulting in moral problems and technical fanaticism. How does higher education develop well in the era of AI? Thinking and answering these deep-seated questions will be the key to determining how far AI will go in the field of education, and also the response of higher education to the era of AI.

AI; higher education; educational opportunities; Wisdom response.
