Welcome to the AI in Education podcast

From Ray Fleming and Dan Bowen from Microsoft Australia

It's a weekly chat about Artificial Intelligence in Education - what it is, how it works, and the different ways it is being used. It's not too serious, or too technical, and is intended to be a good conversation of background information.

Of course, as well as getting it here on the website, you can also just subscribe in your normal podcast service:

In this week's episode, continuing our journey on exploring Artificial Intelligence in Education, we talk about the common AI services. We talk about chatbots (or 'conversational agents'), predictive analytics, and making sense of student and campus data . 

We also discuss how Artificial Intelligence services are getting easier to use every day, and becoming part of every day life - like expecting to talk to our phone and it can understand us. We also attempt some long words - like pedagogy and data democratisation - and how it relates to artifical intelligence. And we disagree with some of the thinking of Silicon Valley gurus on the use of AI in education, and whether there's a risk of turning students into data objects.
