Loving the alien - robots and AI in education

Speaker: Martin Hamilton, futurist, Jisc.

In this session Martin will explore the potential of robots and artificial intelligence (AI) for teaching and learning.

Martin will mix in some future gazing with real world examples that help to signpost where we may be heading with these technologies. From the generative art produced by Google’s Deep Dream project to considering what a curriculum generated by an AI might look like, or how an AI might assess learning gain and learner engagement.

Could we use the digital exhaust of learner and institutional data to improve teaching and learning outcomes? What new ethical issues would this raise, and what would we do when the “computer says no”?

It is written like this: "I checked out with K19 on Aldabaran III, and stepped out through the crummalite hatch on my 22 Model Sirus Hardtop. I cocked the timejector in secondary and waded through the bright blue manda grass. My breath froze into pink pretzels. I flicked on the heat bars and the Brylls ran swiftly on five legs using their other two to send out crylon vibrations.The pressure was almost unbearable, but I caught the range on my wrist computer through the transparent cysicites. I pressed the trigger.The thin violet glow was icecold against the rust-colored mountains.The Brylls shrank to half an inch long and I worked fast stepping on them with the poltex. But it wasn't enough.The sudden brightness swung me around and the Fourth Moon had already risen. I had exactly four seconds to hot up the disintegrator and Google had told me it wasn't enough. He was right." They pay brisk money for this crap? Ray 14/03/2017 Loving the alien - robots and AI in education3
