An international conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and education is taking place in Beijing, China from 16 to 18 May 2019. The conference will provide a platform for Member States, international organizations, civil society, and the AI industry to:

  • debate whether skills needed to successfully cope in the AI era can be anticipated, and share experiences on the development of such skills that will enable humans to adapt to a society informed by AI;
  • exchange information on the latest trends in AI and how the trends are shaping education and learning;
  • assess lessons learned from emerging national policies and strategies for leveraging AI to achieve SDG 4; and
  • strengthen international cooperation and partnership for promoting equitable, inclusive, and transparent use of AI in education.

The conference is expecting more than 500 participants, including approximately two high-level representatives from each participating Member State, as well as representatives of UN agencies and international organizations, leaders of the AI industry, academic experts, policy-makers, and practitioners.

A synthesis report to document the main achievements and outcomes of the Conference will be published, as well as a Consensus, to be developed and adopted by the high-level representatives of the Member States.

The conference is co-organized by UNESCO, the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China, and the National Commission of the People’s Republic of China for UNESCO.
