Turing Lecture: Is education AI-ready?
The first in The Turing Lecture mini-series exploring the role of AI and data science in our lives post-lockdown.
COVID-19 has precipitated a major experiment for the UK’s education system that may change the way we teach and learn forever, but what role can and should AI play in this transformation? Professor Luckin will discuss the current stage of AI's application in education and the ways in which AI has supported teachers and learners during the pandemic.
Professor Luckin will also look towards the future and consider how AI could be used to support a COVID-compliant transformation for our education system - a transformation that seeks to enable all learners to achieve their full potential. Throughout the lecture examples from different AI systems will be presented to illustrate what is happening in the present and what could happen in the future.
We will also hear recommendations as to how our education system can become 'AI ready.'
