Track / Overview

Learning is a key factor of success throughout our lives (from early childhood to professional excellence), and yet educational approaches have evolved surprisingly little since Ancient Greece. However, recent progress in artificial intelligence enables us to fulfill the dream of personalized learning for unprecedented efficiency.

In this track, AI researchers, education scientists, and EdTech entrepreneurs will discuss how they apply machine learning to enhance human intellect, curiosity, and creativity.
