AI & EDUCATION
The AI & Education conference hosted by EdTech Asia looked beyond the clichéd friend-or-foe debate on the role of AI, to analyse the effects of AI integration into the workplace and its role in enhancing human performance and creativity. Based on his own inspiring journey from a dishwasher on hourly wages into a successful tutor and entrepreneur, Duc Luu, Chief Strategy Officer of RISE Education had some simple but hard-hitting advice for entrepreneurs: to choose investors wisely, identify the total addressable market, examine your business model, and most of all “find your market and plough a truck through it.” The conference explored the challenges and opportunities presented by AI and related technologies at the school and university level, as well as ongoing skill development at work, and how educators, corporates and governments can work together to maximise the benefits of these technologies.
“You have to work with teachers all the time, rather than seeing it as just yet another box to tick.”
