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's interview is with Doctor Nic Woods, Microsoft Australia's Chief Medical Officer. As we learn more about the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare, we see more and more similarities to the use of AI in education. And we have a fascinating discussion about the role of the professional alongside the AI systems - and what it means when we talk about a profession as a craft.


And in the "I didn't know that" moment, did you know that when you receive a doctorate in Sweden, you get given a sword. And yet medical doctors don't even get given their first stethoscope!
