A recent acceleration of innovation in Artificial Intelligence (AI) in a wide variety of domains from speech recognition and image classification to genomics has made it a hot topic during the last few years. AI has been increasingly seen as a high potential tool to help in education as well: indeed, it offers the opportunity to enhance learning environments for the educator to better evaluate the learning process, as well as to help learners improve their learning experiences. In this context, it is expected that AI will have a significant influence on education at all levels, starting from schools, to university education, to continuous learning. It will impact both the way we deliver education and the way students will be able to learn, get deeper knowledge on subjects of interest, and improving professional skills. This talk will describe a variety of ways in which AI is used in personalized learning as well as future trends.
"As leaders, it is incumbent on all of us to make sure we are building a world in which every individual has an opportunity to thrive. Understanding what AI can do and how it fits into your strategy is the beginning, not the end, of that process" ~ Andrew Ng
