37: A.I and the Future of Education with Peter Foltz, Research Professor Professor, Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado - Boulder

On the 37th episode of EdUp EdTech, I had the humble privilege of chatting with Peter Foltz, Research Professor at the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado, Boulder. In this episode, we discuss A.I., machine learning, and technologies that help streamline the work of educators, and how machines will NOT replace teachers. Futuristic technologies will lead to more innovation and collaboration in the classroom, wherever that may be.
