CRAY Colloquium: Towards AI-Powered Data-Informed Education
The computer science colloquium takes place on Mondays from 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. This week's speaker, Sihem Amer-Yahia (Grenoble Alpes), will be giving a talk titled "Towards AI-Powered Data-Informed Education".
The Covid-19 health crisis has seen an increase in the use of digital work platforms from videoconferencing systems to MOOC-type educational platforms and crowdsourcing and freelancing marketplaces. These levers for sharing knowledge and learning constitute the premises of the future of work. Educational technologies coupled with AI hold the promise of helping learners and teachers. However, they are still limited in terms of learner and teacher agency and learning opportunities. I will describe research at the intersection of data-informed recommendations and education theory and discuss with ethical considerations in building educational platforms.
