EngageLIVE: Unlocking the Myths of AI and Data Intelligence – How AI Tools Like ChatGPT Can Drive Innovation in Learning and Work

As we start 2023, it’s hard to miss articles talking about AI and data intelligence. This transformational trend has captivated nearly all industries, and is already making an impact in our lives, our workplaces, and our society. 

Data and AI are introducing new ways to create insights and solve problems. From all the buzz of ChatGPT and Deepfakes now, to the advent of radio, calculators and the internet itself years before. 

Technology drives innovation – but it’s people who apply this technology to create real change for real people. To decrease burnout, to fight crime, to feed our world better – and to help save lives. 

Join Engageli for an interactive EngageLIVE session featuring Marijn Markus, Managing Data Scientist, social scientist at Capgemini, along with Talia Kolodny, Director of Partnerships, EMEA at Engageli. Marijn will share examples from his groundbreaking work on data-driven decision making and help us explore the potential of AI and robots in fields like education and workplace learning.

Whether you are a higher education leader or corporate learning professional, you won’t want to miss this session.
