Countries around the world are allocating billions of dollars to prepare for Artificial Intelligence — investing in research, enterprise and human capabilities. To meet this emerging reality, students, professionals and citizens need to learn how to interact with AI.

Empowering Learners for the Age of AI is a free, national online conference, mixing national keynote talks with local meetings in different states. We warmly welcome you to join this public conversation on how Australia can equip its citizens to engage productively with societal infrastructure powered by data, analytics and AI.

  • How can data, analytics and AI be used not to disempower or automate work, but to empower learners and professionals?
  • Go deeper on what we mean by “empowering learners” — who needs empowering, why, and to do what?
  • How must  modern knowledge systems (such as schools, universities, corporate training and development, government agencies) change to prepare people for an AI society?
  • How to track and assess the qualities that equip people for this future?
  • Share the opportunities and concerns that you see: this is just the conversation starter!

Audience: The conference will be of interest to individuals with all levels of AI expertise, from beginner to advanced. World-leading researchers and experts will deliver keynotes addresses while discussion panels will explore implications in a range of sectors.

If your interests involve how data, analytics and AI will shape the future of learning, this open conference is for you!

AI has already made a marked impact on several spheres of work and society. Changes effected with the use of AI in some areas are well-documented such as medical diagnostics, digital marketing, and robotics. The role of AI in the future will keep growing and will drive change across all aspects of work and society such as trades, farming, mining, energy, health, finances, education, and taxation.

This panel aims to outline the context that requires empowerment of learners for the age of AI. The panel will also discuss the needs for equipping learners to work with AI across different sectors of work and aspects of life.

Maarten de Laat
Maarten de Laat
(University of South Australia)

This panel explores the application of AI to support knowledge processes and human learning. The integration of smart technologies in our daily lives is becoming common place. We are often not even aware of the use of machine learning support digital interaction and provide assistance. Well known examples are conversational agents on the Web to help to navigate websites and provide answers to our questions and the use of smart speakers and wearable devices to assist with our needs and play to our moods.

The aim of this panel is to discuss current use cases and future trends of how AI integrates or interacts with our knowledge processes with the aim to empower human learning, problem-solving and information processing. This can be in Education, Health care, Industry, or Government.

Typical question we seek to address during this panel are:

* What are current examples of hybrid intelligence in action, where human and machine intelligence is combined to facilitate learning or knowledge processing?

* What are the strengths and weaknesses of AI to support knowledge processes?

* What is the value add and risk of combining AI with human learning and decision-making?

* How do we develop trusted human-machine relationships and where will AI take us – can AI truly become a teammate in group learning or a co-author of a ground-breaking scientific discovery?

Sarah Howard
University of Wollongong

Whether we are prepared for it or not, AI is already affecting education and educators. In particular, educators have choices to make about how they will adapt and respond to AI and how they may adopt in learning. However, there are also questions to consider about the intent of AI tools in educational spaces: Who are these built for? Who benefits? Who has the control? These questions introduce complicated decisions educators need to make about data responsibility, privacy, duty of care for learners and their own role and identity as teachers and workers. As with many digital technologies brought into learning spaces, there is a balance to be reached but it is unclear what form this takes.

This panel aims to explore some of the complicated decisions and choices educators are faced with when considering how AI is integrated into learning. Specifically, the panel will unpack the implications for educators as they navigate changing learning spaces and expectations in schools and higher education, and into the workplace.

The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources has just completed a national consultation on a draft AI Action Plan for Australia.* This poses a number of pressing questions which are central to this conference’s interests:

* What is the best way to ensure Australians have the skills and capabilities they will need for an AI enabled future?

* What is the best way to ensure Australian businesses have access to the AI workforce they need for an AI enable future?

* Is there more the government can do to support responsible and human centred development and use of AI in Australia?

* What approach should Australia take internationally to steward its values and commitment to the responsible and ethical use of the AI?

To open up these issues, we’re delighted to have two government colleagues: Tim Bradley (General Manager, Emerging Technologies in the Digital Economy & Technology Division), and Ian Oppermann (Chief Data Scientist and CEO, NSW Data Analytics Centre). From ed-tech company Practera, we welcome Ruth Marshall (Director of R&D and Data Integrity), and from academia, three leaders in Analytics/AI and learning science for academic and professional learning: Shane Dawson, Kirsty Kitto and Lina Markauskaite.
