On behalf of the APPG AI Chairs, Stephen Metcalfe MP and Lord Clement-Jones CBE, and the Secretariat at Big Innovation Centre, we would like to invite you to our Evidence Meeting: ETHICS (EDUCATION) – AI’s Ethical Implications

Following the controversy around the flawed statistical model that was applied to standardise students’ A-level results in England this summer, we will take a closer look at AI-based assessment technologies in education at our upcoming evidence meeting. We want to discuss how these technologies can be deployed safely at all levels of the education system and how to ensure that they deliver accurate and fair results. Further, we will explore how AI-based assessment systems compare to teachers’ assessment and how they may impact students’ performance, motivation, and trust.

Questions to inspire:

  • What are the benefits and challenges of different types of AI-based assessment systems in education?
  • How can it be guaranteed that they will deliver reliable and fair results?
  • How will these technologies affect students’ motivation and trust in a fair evaluation of their performance? 
  • How do AI and human understandings of assessment differ?
  • How to prepare students, teachers, and parents before implementing AI-based assessment technologies in education?

We would be delighted for you to join us as we work towards our long-term vision: a society empowered to seize the benefits of AI and protected against potential risks.

At each meeting, we invite a panel of 6-7 influential people from business, government organisations, regulation bodies, and academia to share their experiences, vision, or view on a particular AI topic and to comment on the regulatory, policy or budget relevance they believe policymakers and regulators should focus on. 

Confirmed Panellists:

  • Prof. Janice D. Gobert, Professor of Learning Sciences & Educational Psychology, Graduate School of Education, Rutgers University
  • Priya Lakhani O.B.E., Founder CEO, CENTURY TECH, Intelligent Learning, Artificial Intelligence in Education   
  • TBA Foxglove
