Speech Title: I ChatGPT, therefore I am--TRANSFORMING EDUCATION WITH AI: OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES AHEAD
Abstract: The recently generated interest for artificial intelligence (AI) tools in education is once more disrupting our established models of teaching and learning. Advanced language models, such as ChatGPT and others, are an attempt to support humans to provide a more personalized content of knowledge. Important ethical considerations arise regarding the pervasive nature of AI technologies and how they can be used in the context of inclusive and equitable education for all. Despite the wide range of potential benefits, such as enhancing the teaching and learning experience, there are also potential risks and challenges which need to be considered. Most importantly we need to consider the ethical, social, and economic impact on humanity ensuring that the integration of AI is used to enhance rather than replace and demote human intelligence. As the world moves to a hybrid post-pandemic era of new possibilities and endless variety of alternatives towards a digital future it is important to rethink and establish a balance between the use of AI in education and the maintenance of human intelligence as the principal factor that will ensure the future of humanity.
