Minding Our Minds: Accelerating and Empowering Learning with Big Data, Analytics, and AI


Data, analytics, and artificial intelligence have the power to accelerate learning in ways that can fundamentally change education, the workplace, and society -- and how learners manage their own learning and the growth of their minds, careers, and lives. In this presentation, Dr. Jeff Bergin provides several examples of this acceleration for adult learners and describes the associated impact on learning, education, and the future of work. Dr. Bergin also describes the risks that learners of all ages and stages face as learning continues to be more data-enabled, personalized, and ubiquitous.
