Whether its primary schools or business schools, AI is reshaping the education environment and is proving to be a powerful tool for both educators and students. AI is being used to create adaptive learning systems to teach students based on their needs and preferences. AI algorithms are helping teachers to customize educational content like creating quizzes and lesson plans, saving time and enhancing resource efficiency. In addition, valuable data on a student’s performance is creating customized learning plans. But there are concerns around biases, privacy and students cheating. As AI becomes a key learning companion, there is a need to educate both teachers and students on how best to use AI. Teachers need to be trained on how to deploy unbiased and transparent AI in their teaching and students need to learn the ethical considerations

Join us for an insightful webinar that discusses the opportunities and challenges for implementing AI in educational settings. Panelists will discuss uses cases of AI in education, potential future trends and where further research and experimentation is required.
