Abstract

This talk explores the transformative impact of Generative AI (GenAI) and Large Language Models (LLMs) in education, highlighting both the vast opportunities and the significant challenges that accompany their integration. As GenAI and LLMs continue to evolve, they offer unprecedented potential to personalize learning, democratize access to education, and foster innovative teaching methodologies. This talk will explain how these technologies can tailor educational content to meet diverse learning needs, enable interactive and immersive learning experiences, and facilitate the development of critical thinking and creativity. However, alongside these benefits, the deployment of GenAI and LLMs in education raises concerns regarding ethical considerations, data privacy, and the potential widening of the digital divide. We will discuss strategies to mitigate these challenges, emphasizing the importance of equitable access, robust ethical frameworks, and the development of digital literacy skills. Join us as we navigate the future of education in the age of artificial intelligence.
