SPEAKER SESSIONS

AI in Education

AI has been in the news and has come a long way. From a piece of AI generated picture winning the first prize in an art competition, to Saudi Arabia granting citizenship to a robot for first time ever, to the first Humanoid Robot being appointed CEO of a Chinese Company. AI is increasingly being used as a strategic differentiator per a Gartner study. In fact, Dubai has the world’s ministry of AI and a dedicated UAE National Strategy for AI 2031. In this talk, we discuss how AI is the new electricity and how AI is revolutionizing the Education space. We also touch base on some of the innovative AI use cases we have implemented in GEMS Education for enhanced teaching & learning outcomes.
