DAY 1 KEYNOTE PREVIEW: Rose Luckin: Realising the potential of artificial intelligence for education: 3 routes to impact

We are delighted to welcome Professor Rose Luckin to this year's conference. Rose is Professor of Learner Centred Design at UCL Knowledge Lab in London. Her research involves the design and evaluation of educational technology using theories from learning science and techniques from artificial intelligence.

She has a particular interest in using AI to open up the ‘black box’ of learning to show teachers and students the detail of their progress intellectually, emotionally and socially and is author of Machine Learning and Human Intelligence: The future of education in the 21st century, published in June 2018 by IOE press. In October 2018, Rose co-funded the Institute for Ethical AI in Education, with social entrepreneur Priya Lakhani and VC Sir Anthony Seldon. Rose is also Director of EDUCATE, a London hub for education technology start-ups, researchers and educators to work together on the development of evidence-informed educational technology.

Rose holds an International Francqui Chair at KU Leuven, and was named on the Seldon List 2017 as one of the most influential people in Education. She is a UFI charity trustee, a governor and trustee of St Paul’s School in London, a governor of the Self-Managed Learning College in Brighton and a member of the Cambridge University Press Syndicate (ELT & Education Publishing Committee). She has taught in the state secondary, further education and higher education sectors, and she was previously Pro-Vice Chancellor for Teaching and Laarning at the University of Sussex.

Rose's presentation will be available after the conference but in the meantime, you can read more from her on artificial intelligence in her report Intelligence Unleashed: an argument for AI in education which was published as part of Open Ideas at Pearson, our initiative to share independent insights on some of the big unanswered questions in education.
