IORMA Webinar : How AI is enhancing Personal Development
Thursday 24 February 2022
The pandemic, the lockdowns and working from home have changed how individuals and societies think and act. As a result, personal development has become more important, for one’s career, cognitive health or just pleasure!
Every person has a different style of how he or she learns and processes new information. Learning is likely to be more effective if these preferences are taken into account.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) allows learning to be personalised by adapting to the needs of each learner, whether it be by the means of encouragement, the speed or the media used.
Experts who design the learning platforms will discuss the benefits that AI poses for personal development, and the challenges ahead with those who train and educate.
A video of this Webinar appears below :
Dr Julie Wall, Reader in Computer Science, Leader, Intelligent Systems Research Group and Director of Impact and Innovation for the School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering , University of East London.
Julie’s research focus is on machine/deep learning architectures, algorithms and applications for audio, speech and natural language understanding; biologically inspired deep learning for sound localisation, speech recognition and enhancement.
In addition Julie researches privacy preserving intelligent systems for audio processing; developing industrial applications of automated decision-making machine and natural language understanding; and applications of intelligent systems to immersive virtual, augmented and mixed environments. Julie maintains close collaborative research and development links with industry.
