We are launching the third topic in our focus series on the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). In March we will start publishing posts relating the goal of “quality education”, which is SDG number four on the UN list.
We are looking for researchers, users and stakeholders to write, or talk, about their work. If you are interested in communicating your education-related efforts to a wider audience then please do get in touch. Likewise, if you would like to make recommendations for people or specific topics we should feature, just send us an email.
We plan to cover a number of different aspects of “quality education”. This will include training and education in the field of AI itself, and also using AI methods to improve education generally. All levels of education will be considered, from schools to University level, from the general public to industry and professional development.
The deadline for contributions is 9 March 2021.
