AI is a game changer for the world
By the time students leave school, many of the jobs known to us today, will be done by a machine or will include augmentation by a machine. Artificial Intelligence technology and its integration into every sector of the economy is expanding so rapidly and changing the career landscape so vastly. This is a big challenge for parents and educators, we exist to prepare the next generation so they can continue tackling the problems of our world and contribute to society. But how do we prepare school students for a world that contains jobs not even created yet? How do we prepare youth for a job market shared with Artificial Intelligence? How do we ensure that our students are not leaving school completely unaware of how our world is rapidly changing because of emergent technologies? There are many exciting and new developing fields that students don’t get exposed to, and therefore are uninformed of pathways where they could excel in, or be passionate about, if given the opportunity.

- When is AI appropriate?
- What is our role?
