Futures of artificial intelligence in education and diversity, equity, and inclusion
Future focused research questionHow can artificial intelligence in education (AIED) communities ensure that future technologies are human-centered and humanist in their design, implementation and interpretation?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is an encompassing family of technologies that extend into all sectors of human life. Although artificial intelligence in education (AIED) research is often framed as supporting student learning and enhancing the educational experience, it is also clear there is significant potential for harm. This proposed Learning Futures Collaborative group is being formed to develop a research plan and methodology to investigate the broad landscape of new and emerging technologies and the challenge for AIED communities to ensure these advancements are human-centered and humanist in their design, implementation, and interpretation. This group will also seek to investigate how AIED communities are able to integrate and inform critical issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
