Rising Star Feature: Disrupting Education with ML
Education has remained stagnant over the past century while technology has grown exponentially. One of the biggest problems with education today, is creating a curriculum that keeps up with innovation. Machine Learning can begin to solve this by autonomously generating curriculum for virtually any topic.

Rising Star Feature: Can We Learn to Learn
A key challenge in the current state of machine intelligence is its inability to generalize and adapt to new tasks. Humans are able to adapt intelligently because of our fundamental brain structure that learns how to learn. The idea of teaching machines to learn how to learn, known as meta-learning, has been shown to be a promising approach in enabling agents to adapt to new tasks. In this talk, Bonnie will present the results of meta reinforcement learning applied to both research and application domains, as well as the development and the frontiers of this approach.

Human Insight Project – 21st Century Education System
Objective measures support that there has never been a better time to be alive, yet equally objective metrics show dissatisfaction levels rising at an alarming rate known as the Paradox of Progress. The rapid pace of technological development means multiple paradigm shifts now occur in a lifetime, shifts that previously occurred once a millennium. Without the proper tools to address our individuality and existence, the paradox will break most coping mechanisms. The challenge is providing personalized assistance for each human to build resilience through rapidly increasing rate of change. With the coming AI shift, it becomes possible to provide timely omnipresent assistance to aid in decision-making. Care should be taken to avoid the dangers of blindly following the data or delegating personal responsibility to an outside agency. Data gathering, and making sense of it, should fall within the human agency. The seed for modern AI is also just data, it just learns to retain the examples it’s been shown. Human Insight Project is the basis of the true 21st-century education system where personalized context by AI can aid every human to navigate through the maps of our outer and inner life terrains.

Panel: Changemakers in AI - Young People Using AI for Good
AI has the potential to impact daily life in countless ways. As we talk about the future of this disruptive and transformative technology, it is critical to include the voice of today's youth who represent society's future. The young people of today will be faced with the impact of the decisions we make about AI, and so having their perspectives, ideas, concerns and solutions is critical for creating responsible and beneficial AI. Join 3 high school-age AI4ALL alumni for a discussion moderated by AI4ALL’s CEO, Tess Posner, about what drew them to AI, how they’re using AI in their own work now, and what they anticipate for the future.
