Welcome to the AI in Education podcast

With Dan Bowen, Beth Worrall, and Lee Hickin from Microsoft Australia

It's a fortnightly 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 to your normal podcast service:

This week Dan and Ray talk about the use of our data, with artificial intelligence on top, to support our wellbeing. From talking about our own time management and how data and AI is adding itself into that bit, to discussing the use of facial recognition for student registration, we discuss the humanistic elements of the story. For example, the important role of the teacher and their interaction with students, or our preferred working styles. And somehow we even end up mentioning massage in Swedish schools.

We discuss the importance of staying focused on impacting the desired outcome - like keeping students engaged in school or university to graduation - rather than getting lost by just focusing on the technology and AI thinking.
