TER #117 – AI and Education with Jane Hunter and Kal Gulson – 19 Aug 2018

117 Banner

With the rise of Artificial Intelligence, education faces the potential for significant disruption in the near future. However the ethical implications are possibly as complex as the technological ones, and figuring out exactly what should be done is a question that needs to be asked as much as determining what can be done. To explore this issue, Jane Hunter and Kal Gulson together discuss the possibilities and implications of artificial intelligence in education; what we might hope for, and what to watch out for.
