09 Apr Panel discussion: Wednesday 24 April 2019, Monaco
Artificial intelligence (AI) will have a profound effect on our working lives in the coming decades. Fuelled by big data, AI will help us solve a range of problems. It will help us cure illnesses, create clean energy and build useful and affordable public services. But it will also bring about a huge change in the way we live.
The education sector must be prepared for the imminent impact of artificial intelligence – most importantly on the new skills that will be needed, the integration of AI tools into the education system, the place and role of the teacher as well as of schools themselves as spaces for learning and socialization. These are all issues bringing hopes and begetting fears, inspiring both realistic and far-fetched forecasts, and demanding careful reflection about what kind of future we want.
Our panel has been set up to open the debate so that we can better understand the importance of these coming changes; specialists from the world of education and AI will share their own ideas with the audience and then discuss the questions raised by a topic that is so important for our children’s future in an unpredictable world.
