From the UK Open Data Institute:

This week, the UK government launched its first ‘National AI Strategy’, which aims to position the country as the ‘best place to live and work with AI’. The 10-year plan includes things like investing in access to data, using AI to benefit all sectors and regions (including using it for public benefit and towards goals like net zero), and governing data effectively.


The 23rd international conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education will take place between 27-31 July, 2022 at the University of Durham, UK and virtually. AIED2022 will be collocated with EDM2022.

The AIED2022 theme will be:
AI in Education: Bridging the gap between academia, business, and non-profit in preparing future-proof generations towards ubiquitous AI.

The conference sets the ambitious goal to stimulate discussion on how AI shapes and can shape education for all sectors, how to advance the science and engineering of intelligent interactive learning systems, and how to promote broad adoption. Engaging with the various stakeholders - researchers, educational practitioners, businesses, policy makers, as well as teachers and students - the conference will set a wider agenda on how novel research ideas can meet practical needs to build effective intelligent human-technology ecosystems that support learning.

The impact of Al on the labour market

The debate goes on. Here is the latest discussion organised by the OECD. On February 1 from 1600 to 1700 CET. Go here to register.

"What do we know about the impact of AI on the labour market? Will it further automate jobs and, if so, which ones? Will it improve job quality, or worsen it? And what will AI mean for disparities in the labour market? Will we be able to harness the opportunities that it offers to reduce inequalities or will we instead see inequality rise even further? This session will take stock of what we know about the impact of AI on the labour market and what we might expect to see in the future, including as a result of the Covid-19 crisis."
