UCL Lunch Hour Lecture - Artificial Intelligence and the future of learning
Tue 16 May 2017, 13:00 – 14:00 BST
What makes a good teacher and a successful lesson? Artificial Intelligence in the classroom is the key that is unlocking the answer, according to Rose Luckin, Professor of Learning with Digital Technologies. Intelligent software holds opportunities for individualised teaching that understands when and how lessons veer off topic, at what point pupils lose interest and when they are at their most engaged and receptive – providing smart interventions that help teachers find the best learning strategies for their classes.
In this Lunch Hour Lecture, Professor Luckin will discuss what AI is telling us about how we learn and predict how machines and humans will interact in the classrooms of the future.
This lecture is part of the It’s All Academic Festival. For more information on other Festival events, see www.ucl.ac.uk/campaign/festival.
