GenAIEdu 2023, a national conference on Generative Artificial Intelligence in Education, will explore the cutting-edge world of Generative Artificial Intelligence in an educational context at Ulster University’s Derry~Londonderry campus.

The summit will bring together world-leading educators, researchers, teachers, students and industry professionals, to understand how generative AI is revolutionising the way we learn, teach and assess.

Some of the leading voices from the UK and Ireland on AI in education have been confirmed to speak – these include industry leaders from Microsoft, the National Centre for AI at JISC: the UK digital, data and technology agency focused on tertiary education, research and innovation, ICS: UK's first Microsoft AI Inner Circle Partner, TransformEducation as well as researchers from Ulster University, Dundalk Institute of Technology and the University of Manchester.

Attendees will explore cutting-edge technologies and large language models such as ChatGPT, Bard and Claude and how these tools and natural language processing capabilities enable personalised and interactive learning experiences through a series of keynotes, talks, discussion panels and hands on workshops, demonstrations and networking events with leading academics, researchers and industry experts in this area.

The three day conference will take place at Ulster University’s Derry~Londonderry campus on 11th-13th September 2023 and will be hosted by the School ofComputing, Engineering, and Intelligent Systems.

Michael Callaghan, Conference chair and Reader in the School said:

“Generative AI offers unprecedented opportunities and challenges for transformation in education which we must navigate carefully. The GenAIEdu conference will explore the impact of Generative AI on students, and the evolving role of educators and institutions in this technologically enriched and rapidly evolving landscape.”

Professor Jim Harkin, Head of the School added:

“The School is delighted to host this conference and explore the use of Generative AI both in education and society in general. We are uniquely positioned on the Derry~Londonderry campus to be at the forefront of shaping the next generation of computing and AI graduates with our offering of undergraduate degree courses in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.”
