Microsoft has often highlighted the significance of artificial intelligence (AI) in recent months. In June, the tech giant, citing a study, noted that AI would contribute $5 trillion to global GDP growth in the coming years, among other advantages. On the same day, Microsoft highlighted its AI solutions that are being used to keep infrastructure safe. In the more recent past, we've also seen a couple of interesting Microsoft patents utilizing various artificial intelligence systems.
Now, the Redmond firm has launched a new podcast series centered around the technology wave in different fields of education. Titled "Artificial Intelligence in Education", the first episode of this podcast has been released.
Two members of Microsoft's Australia Education team are hosting the series, namely, Dan Bowen and Ray Fleming. The work that both of them have been involved in recent years is directly related to the field of artificial intelligence. As such, they will be discussing what it actually is, and how it can be utilized in schools, colleges, and universities.
It should be noted that their conversations in this regard won't be concerned with the technicalities of AI. Instead it will be introducing some basic aspects of AI, and discuss its implications in simple terms - starting off, at least. Moving on, Bowen and Fleming will respectively be talking about AI with relevance to schools and higher education, their respective areas of expertise. At some point, interviews will also be held with people that specialize in other areas, such as personalizing learning and accessibility, with respect to AI.
If you are interested in checking out the series, you can access the first episode right now on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and other podcast apps. Alternatively, you can also listen to it directly on its official website.
