K4A trustee discussing AI challenges at UN event co-hosted by Slovenia

The Slovenian mission to the United Nations, the Council of Europe (CoE) and UNESCO hosted an event discussing the challenges of artificial intelligence (AI) at the UN headquarters in New York. The event title Artificial Intelligence: Technology to Serve Humankind, Setting Legal Standards, released a document and shared the view that AI offered a number of advantages but also many risks. Moderated by Slovenian Justice Ministry State Secretary Gregor Strojin, with key input from K4A trustee Marko Groibelnik who talked about AI certification, the debate focused on legal and ethical issues of existing and future use of AI.

K4A trustee delivers UNESCO report on teacher training and Artificial Intelligence

Report on Education, Training Teachers and Learning Artificial Intelligence

K4A assisted UNESCO in delivering a report on teacher training in AI. In this report we study the different interactions between AI and Education with an emphasis on the following question: If we accept that artificial intelligence is an important element in tomorrow’s landscape, what are the skills and competences which should appear in the future curricula and how can we help to train the teachers so that they can play the required role?

This report is one of the first addressing these questions: as such it is less built as a synthesis of existing reports with an increment from previous works than as an analysis based on the experience of teachers, researchers, academics and practitioners.

AI for the Common Good: F’AI’R Education Hackathon

K4A is facilitating a  hackathon supported by the UK Science and Innovation Network at the British Embassy in Paris, the United Nations ANCSSC, and H2020 project X5GON to allow students at several international universities to take part in an early requirements capture process, leading to design and build stage to develop a working prototype that supports Open Education with AI. Join us in this endeavor and see here for more details.

My blue sky project for AI is to make better humans, to improve the quality of life, to enable humans to do things that they perhaps couldn’t do before, to make people better than the best people out there currently.
