June 2019

June was a very busy month in the Edtech calendar, so here are some of the main stories from the events.

The general interest in the impact of AI in society is growing, and in education the debate is raging! Educators are grappling with the possibilites and ramifications, while education companies are reconsidering their product roadmaps and strategic direction.

We were onsite with 4 of the Europe's largest publishing groups, as our consultancy business continues to grow. We work with education companies on how AI-powered learning products can be trialled and integrated into the product roadmap, typically over a 18-36 month period.

  • At EdtechX, I participated in the very popular panel "The Role of AI in Education" with HolonIQ, Nesta and Q-Sense.
  • Our head of Publisher Services Daniel McCrea spoke at Contech Forum about the growing role of AI in Content Production processes.
  • Our head of AI Research Dr. Ioana Ghergulescu spoke at the leading academic conference in this field on User Modelling and Personalisation methodologies, winning the award for best paper. Well done Ioana!
  • Adaptemy was showcased at the recent Irish government event on our global edtech impact. Organised by Enterprise Ireland, the event attracted the CLO (Chief Learning Officers) of some of world's largest companies.

I think one of the key challenges in the whole are of AI in Education is the explainability of the guidance. At Adaptemy we are starting a research project into the visualisation of learner models, and what is now called "Explainable AI" (xAI), so that teachers and learners can understand and guide the data and algorithms that are designed to support learning. If you would like to participate in these research projects, please get in touch.

For those of you we met at conferences recently, apologies if we haven't fully followed up yet, our team is struggling to keep up with the growing number of conversations. Please bear with us as we catch up over the coming weeks.

Have a great summer!

CEO at Adaptemy
