Artificial Intelligence in Education and the Workplace: What Now, What Next?

The arrival of Chat-GPT has created shockwaves, aggravating concerns about misinformation and bias and accelerating calls for guardrails to protect against the misuse of artificial intelligence. Within education and the workplace, this technology has caused faculty to question their roles in teaching and learning and institutions to reconsider their approaches to assessment and academic integrity.

Yet, Chat-GPT and other types of artificial intelligence may have a valuable role in education and workforce readiness. For example, they may significantly impact delivering genuinely personalized learning, where users interact with a solution, and the solution develops recommendations and analysis based on that interaction. Likewise, artificial intelligence would help improve decision support for students, informing how they design their decisions, augment them with additional relevant data, discover the best decision, and review the output of that decision. Also, any initiative that sought to increase and deepen student engagement with technology would benefit from artificial intelligence by leveraging machine learning to improve how students interact with that technology. Lastly, artificial intelligence may help us redouble our efforts to improve interoperability, as delivering on the promise of artificial intelligence requires accessing, exchanging, and integrating data from disparate solutions for use in a coordinated manner.

In this session, we will explore the role artificial intelligence has had, if any, in helping learners progress through their educational journeys into the workforce and discuss what the future might hold. After attending this session, participants will see how to evaluate how artificial intelligence might fit within their efforts to improve their students’ journeys.
