Artificial Intelligence Research (AI)
Intelligence Unleashed Back Story
Last autumn, Pearson and the UCL Knowledge Lab teamed up to convene the teaching and research communities for a series of events designed to explore artificial intelligence in the context of education. The first event explored questions about what AI is (and isn’t).
The second event (CCW Digital were part of) brought together AI experts, education technologists and educators for constructive conversations about how we might address real, pressing problems in education through innovative applications of smart technology.
A member of the panel we would like to bring over to UAL to participate in a AI in the arts debate would be Kaska Porayska-Pomsta. Kaska who holds a PhD in artificial intelligence and is a researcher for the UCL Knowledge Lab (a part of the IoE), where she also teaches. Her research focuses on new and effective modes of teaching and learning and the learning process between humans and between humans and machines.
Up-Coming: A week long 'Pop-Up Digital Making' Event: 16 - 20 May
