We are excited to announce our keynote speakers for Faculty Technology Day 2023!
AI and Education
Daniel Susskind, Ph.D., Research Professor in Economics at King’s College London, Senior Research Associate, Institute for Ethics in AI, Oxford University
In the future, the education profession will look remarkably different from today, and we will neither need nor want teachers – or doctors, lawyers, architects, accountants, engineers, consultants, and many other professionals – to work as they did in the 20th century. In this pragmatic and optimistic talk, Susskind explains why, and sets out how the education profession can prepare to flourish in decades to come.
Grades in the machine, the intersection of machine learning and human assessment
Charles Lang, Ed.D., Senior Executive Director & Coterminous Professor, Teachers College, Columbia University
In the classroom, excitement and trepidation have grown about how specific tools might augment or subvert educational aims while on the societal level, it is unclear what aspects of human cognition will remain unique to humans. At the intersection of these concerns lie questions of assessment and what it means to build representations of the inner workings of both humans and machines. How and why we build these representations may lead us to strange and unrecognizable futures.
Don’t forget to RSVP as soon as possible. We look forward to participating in this day of conversation, discovery, and exchange of views with you! Please use the Twitter hashtag #FordhamFTD23 and follow us on Twitter and Instagram to stay up to date.
