Nearly everyone comes into contact with AI and machine learning technologies on a daily basis. Ranging from the way that Netflix uses our TV-watching habits to provide recommendations, to the sometime comedic auto corrections our smartphones make while sending text messages. The technologies that make these interactions possible can also be used to take on some of the greatest challenges facing open education. Once realized, these technologies will change how schools and experts pursue open education.

For the past three years, Penn State University has been experimenting with a broad range of AI and machine learning technologies that help address some of the greatest challenges facing the exploration, creation, adoption, and sharing of open educational resources. This session will explore practical examples while initiating a new conversation within the community around the opportunities and implications of using smart tools to advance how open educational materials are created and accessed by students.
