Artificial Intelligence (AI) has entered the realm of learning and development in the past couple of years. Hardly a day go by without reading something about how AI is being deployed in the form of chatbots, using big data to predict staff performance, providing personalized curated content, and making recommendations. This year, AI systems will support our workplace learning trajectory more than ever, but only if we can make sense and discern the appropriate use of the technologies. This presentation aims to demystify what AI is (and isn’t), provide an overview on various AI applications for learning, discuss how to leverage it to best effect and what it means for the future of L&D.
Dr. Stella Lee has over 20 years of progressive experience internationally in consulting, planning, designing, implementing, and measuring digital learning initiatives with higher education, government, NGOs, and the private sectors. Today her focus is on large scale learning projects including enterprise-wide e-learning strategy and governance, digital ethics for learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and e-learning applications, corporate universities, learning management system (LMS) design, evaluation and implementation, learning analytics, digital transformation and change management. Stella has served as subject matter expert in evaluating e-learning standards for the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and conducted postdoctoral research with iCore Research Lab at Athabasca University, Canada’s Open University. She has a doctorate in Computer Science with a focus on adaptive learning technology from University of Hertfordshire. Stella serves as Canada’s Startup Advisor and is the technology columnist for Training Industry Magazine. She is a regular international speaker, and has been invited to speak at organizations such as University of Auckland, Cambridge University, Suncor Energy, the United Nations, and Google. She runs a consulting company called Paradox Learning Inc.
