The next Cambridge Network business lecture on Tuesday 1st May explores 'Innovation in Education' - looking at how the fast-moving world of technology can provide resources and virtual environments to enable teachers and trainers to motivate and engage with their students.
Tasks in education such as language recognition, assessment and marking are rapidly being automated, with artificial intelligence (AI) helping students and teachers to be productive, to plan and collaborate.
With lifelong learning at work now a necessity, technology can help us prepare for a future of engaged and resilient employees.
Speaker: Prof Ted Briscoe, Director of the Institute for Automated Language Teaching and Assessment (ALTA), Cambridge Language Sciences, University of Cambridge.
Professor Ted Briscoe is Professor of Computational Linguistics at the Computer Laboratory in the University of Cambridge, where he has been a member of staff since 1989. His broad research interests are computational and theoretical linguistics and automated speech and language processing. He directed and was heavily involved in the teaching of the MPhil in Computer Speech, Text and Internet Technology, taught jointly with the Engineering Department.
This event takes place from 6pm at The Hauser Forum, The Entrepreneurship Centre, 3 Charles Babbage Road, CB3 0GT.
