AI in Education: Opportunities and Challenges

AI is one of the most transformative technologies of our time. It has huge disruptive potential across many industry verticals such as retail, transportation, manufacturing, education and agriculture. The disappearance of jobs could drastically impact the education and workforce systems. Yet others argue that tech is not our enemy but a tool that can be applied to solve some of the worlds biggest problems- from climate change, to the refugee crisis, and and access to high quality education.
