AI will contribute to better learning outcomes, to reduce dropout rate of schools and flag learning difficulties encountered by students. However not all of this is far in the future – some of it is even reality. What sounds like future music is already reality.

In the web-talk, experts from Germany, Brazil and India will give in an insight on current research projects and the use of AI in education. Personalized and adaptive learning, assessment and learning analytics, intelligent tutoring and AI mentoring are areas of AI application which will be discussed.

Moderator: Dr. Katja Lasch, DWIH New-Delhi

Further Information

Artificial intelligence is one of the key technologies that will shape the future and is already altering the world. This has prompted governments around the world to develop national strategies. The government of Germany and India adopted their strategies in 2018. Both see AI and research in AI as a significant tool for economic transformation, responsible development but also for overall good of the society. Creating better solutions for societal goods with the help of AI is also discussed in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals which have a strong commitment from both the nations as well. Can AI contribute largely to enable the accomplishment of the SDGs or is AI an inhibitor?

This web talk series will explore the role of AI for three significant SDGs namely Quality Education, Good Health and Well-Being and Zero Hunger. Education, healthcare and agriculture will be addressed from perspectives of developing as well as developed countries. Scientists, experts, decision-makers and professionals across disciplines from India and abroad will present good practices, international projects and recommendations related to AI research for societal good. Topics such as AI driven diagnostics and personalised treatment, AI technology in agriculture and crop improvement, customized learning and tutoring systems with the help of AI will be addressed.
