Join MIT’s Eric Grimson, Cynthia Breazeal, and Chris Capozzola for a discussion of AI and the opportunities and challenges it presents for educational equity, classroom and workplace innovation, combating misinformation, and technological ethics.
Artificial Intelligence challenges educators and students to rethink how we teach and learn in the classroom and beyond. At this moment of possibility and change, Open Learning leadership is at the forefront imagining how AI will be used in the classroom and how MIT can play a major role in educating teachers and learners alike about living, working, and thriving with this technology. With projects including Day of AI, a suite of programs for K-12 teachers and their students, and efforts to build an authenticated archive of digital materials to safeguard knowledge against deepfakes, MIT shapes the future of AI and education.
