Brown Bag Seminar: How is artificial intelligence transforming education and lifelong learning?

The presence of Artificial Intelligence is growing in all areas of life, transforming the ways we learn, do research and work. Join us for the Brown Bag Seminar on Thursday 22 February to learn more about how AI will impact education. What kind of skills do learners need to develop to be able to navigate and succeed in an increasingly AI-integrated world? How will AI impact and contribute to educators’ work? And how does AI support continuous and life-long learning, specifically in healthcare education?

The speakers at this seminar are Professor Kristina Mikkonen and Assistant Professor Andy Nguyen from the Hybrid Intelligence: Human-AI Co-evolution and Learning in Multi-realities (HI) research programme of the University of Oulu. Hybrid Intelligence aims to combine the strengths of both humans and machines in their co-evolutionary processes in productive, responsible, and ethical ways and generate AI-based solutions for fields such as education and nursing by integrating different excellence areas of the University of Oulu.

Assistant Professor Nguyen will discuss the transformative role of AI in education, focusing on its integration in learning, teaching, and research. Professor Mikkonen will present her research on how Hybrid Intelligence supports continuous and life-long learning in healthcare education, approaching the topic from a human-centered perspective.

Prior to this, he has worked as a Research Council of Finland funded postdoctoral researcher at the Learning and Educational Technology Research Lab. He also holds the title of Docent at the Oulu Advanced Research on Service and Information Systems research group.

The aim of the Brown Bag Seminars is to showcase University of Oulu’s research and to encourage knowledge-sharing and networking amongst our researchers. Once a month, we invite two of our researchers from different fields to talk about their research related to the same topic. Brown Bag seminars are open to everyone - come learn something new and join in the conversation!
