The AI revolution is coming to education. In this event Salman Khan, a pioneer in the world of education technology, will discuss his new book that explores how artificial intelligence and generative technology will transform learning. Brave New Words offers a roadmap for teachers, parents, and students to navigate this exciting (and sometimes intimidating) new world. 

Khan will discuss the ins and outs of cutting-edge tools and how they will forever change the way we learn and teach. Rather than approaching the ChatGPT revolution with white-knuckled fear, Khan wants parents and teachers to embrace AI and adapt to it (while acknowledging its imperfections and limitations).

He will not just talk about technology – but also about what this technology means for our society, and the practical implications for administrators, guidance counsellors, and hiring managers who can harness the power of AI in education and the workplace.

Recognized as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, his lessons on YouTube have revolutionised learning, garnering billions of views globally. Having started out tutoring his young cousin, in the early 2000s Khan developed software that enabled him to scale up this personalized tutoring to other students, posting complimentary videos in the early days of YouTube.
