This marks the halfway point in our series on the frontiers of learntech. Our hope is that you have already begun to consider the implications this inevitable explosion in learning technology will have on your learning business.  And when it comes to implications we want to focus on some of the major themes that emerged from our earlier conversations with Donald Clark and Sae Schatz—particularly those related to bias and equity.

Bias and artificial intelligence or, more specifically, bias in AI is not a new concern. But it’s one that’s been garnering more and more attention in recent years, and it feels appropriate to focus on it now because of the rise in social justice movements we’ve experienced here in the United States.

In this fourth episode of the series, we explore the potential harm of bias in AI drawing on research from Joy Buolamwini and Cathy O’Neil, both featured in the Netflix documentary Coded Bias. We also discuss the difference between interpretability and explainability when it comes to understanding marketing AI, and why looking for bias in data is equally important to looking for bias in AI processes.

Learning technology is on the cusp of a renaissance. It’s poised to explode, proving to be essential to the smooth functioning of society and the daily life of billions of people worldwide. So it just made sense to choose it as the focus of our next seven-part series.

In this first episode exploring the frontiers of learntech, we discuss what the topic means to us, key reasons that learning technology has seen such tremendous growth, and important related concepts including artificial intelligence, data, extended reality, personalization, and more. We also preview the thought leaders and practitioners that will be featured in the series and how we hope each of their perspectives will add to our understanding and prepare for what lies ahead.
