    CORE Education
    Artificial Intelligence - New Zealand opportunities
    5 October
    Public discussion Created by CORE Education

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the most talked about technology of our time, promising to transform fundamental aspects of how we live, work and play. The capability of AI to perform tasks that were previously the sole preserve of humans will free people up to focus on higher value activities - but also creates a sense of unease about our very usefulness in the future. Ben will discuss the many opportunities and challenges arising from AI, and how this will impact education - from personal AI tutors through to tools to help teachers focus on higher value tasks to the new ethical concerns arising from AI.

    We are starting to see Artificial Intelligence (AI) more and more in industries - automating processes, like checking in at an airport. Will AI take over the role of the teacher? What do you think?
