February 27, 2019 - 4:30pm to 5:50pm

Join us in this week's ME268 "Robotics, AI and Design of Future Education" invited talk featuring Dr. Paul Kim. Chief Technology officer and Assistant Dean of Graduate School of Education.

Title: How AI will shape the future education

Abstract: With the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence and relevant ICT innovations, the education ecosystem is being pressured to reform. From teaching assistant to student counseling and from learning content curation to learning analytics, leading education innovators are deploying and improving deep learning models to enhance numerous aspects of education. This presentation shares examples of the latest AI-backed learning technology solutions and perspectives on strategies to design learning environments for the 21st century learners.

Speaker Biography: Dr. Paul Kim is the Chief Technology Officer and Assistant Dean of the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University.  He served as an advisory committee member for National Science Foundation (2012-2015), member of the Grand Challenges for International Development Committee at National Academy of Sciences (2011-2013), a member of the board at WestEd (2010-2013), a member of the board at Stratford Schools (2015- Present), a member of the advisrory committee at (2016-Present), and an advisory member to Exceed Capital (2018-present). He has taught graduate-level courses and MOOCs related to educational entrepreneurship, technology design, and international. His government-backed international development projects include the design of a new science and technology university for the Sultan of Oman, the strategy design for the national online learning initiative of Saudi Arabia, and the national education technology assessment initiative for Uruguay.He founded Seeds of Empowerment, a non-profit global education organization and developed SMILE (Stanford Mobile Inquiry-based Learning Environment), a program recognized as one of the most innovating education models by the United Nations in 2016.


ME268 “Robotics, AI and Design of Future Education” was instructed by Dr. Li Jiang from Design Group, Mechanical Engineering.   This class consists of lectures from Dr.Jiang and invited talks from experts in the industry and academia to discuss the state of the art in the field of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and how that will impact the future Education. The time of robotics/AI are upon us. Within the next 10 to 20 years, many jobs will be replaced by robots/AI. We will cover hot topics in Robotics, AI, how we need to prepare students for the rise of Robotics/AI, and how we Re-design and Re-invent our education to adapt to the new era.
