What’s the Role of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Education?

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 - 18:30
SF Edtech Meetup
San Francisco

Education is prone to buzzwords. As “adaptive” wanes, now comes artificial intelligence and machine learning.

This gathering, sponsored by OpenEd (an ACT entity), will explore how these technologies (whose origins date back decades) may finally impact the classroom.

Can the emergence of monstrously fast computing machines, capable of crunching infinitely complex algorithms, support teachers and instructional tools? How can we level-set our expectations of what these technologies can—and can’t—do to support teaching and learning? (And can we do better than chatbots?)

Speakers include:

• Adam Blum (CEO, OpenEd)

• Kathy Benemann (CEO, EruditeAI)

• Kirill Kireyev (founder of instaGrok and TextGenome; head of technology at GYANT)

Light drinks and hors d’oeuvres provided.
