Salman Khan of Khan Academy – How AI Will Revolutionise Education

Live In Conversation With Jason Arday

Salman Khan became world-famous for harnessing the power of technology to transform education for the better. He joins us to explore what AI will mean for teachers and parents alike.

‘A true pioneer of harnessing the power of technology to help kids learn’ – Bill Gates

Whether we like it or not, the AI revolution is coming to education. Can we learn to embrace the change, or are teachers right to fear the latest wave of Silicon Valley innovation?

Salman Khan understands better than anyone the power of technology to disrupt education, serving as living proof that digital technology can be a force for good. From his first doodle online teaching his cousin maths in 2006, to the present day, where his videos have been watched more than 2 billion times, no-one has done more to realise the power of our networked age to help children and teachers like.

As the founder and CEO of Khan Academy, Sal is on a mission to make world-class education available for free to anyone, anywhere – and far from being afraid of Artificial Intelligence and GPT technology, he believes these cutting-edge tools can serve to improve the lives of students and educators. In this exclusive, live-on-stage event in conversation with Professor of Sociology at Cambridge Jason Arday, he will tell us how.

Exploring his roadmap for integrating AI into the schoolroom and the workplace, and considering what the ethical and practical implications of these new technologies mean for society and the individual, Khan will take a deep dive into the future of education that no parent or teacher ought to miss.

A brave new world awaits us: join us and discover how to make it better than the one we leave behind.
