AI & Education Summit

About

As computers continue to automate more routine tasks, AI education is a key enabler to future opportunities where success depends increasingly on intellect, creativity, empathy, and having the right skills and knowledge. Being digitally literate is no longer sufficient in the era of AI.

Join us at the Boston Marriott Cambridge as we explore creative ways to include AI education in the classroom in the hopes of making learning more effective. Our summit will feature expert speakers, an AI ‘Open House’, and presentations by our Global AI Hackathon challenge champions.
