A human and humanoid hand reaching to each other. Generative Future: Revolutionizing Learning with Artificial Intelligence / 2023 C21U Annual Symposium

The Center for 21st Century Universities (C21U) invites you to their 2023 Symposium, Generative Futures: Revolutionizing Learning with Artificial Intelligence, on Thursday, September 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center.

In an age where generative artificial intelligence (generative AI) is reshaping our perceptions of creativity and capability, Generative Futures offers a pivotal exploration into this brave new world. As algorithms craft art, compose music, and write narratives, the lines between human ingenuity and machine creativity blur, invoking powerful reflections from our artistic and scientific fiction canon. The prophetic caution of dystopian tales and the aspiration of utopian narratives guide our understanding, urging us to ask: How does this technological evolution redefine education? From the vast digital landscapes of online education at scale to the individual classrooms, we are challenged to re-imagine the role of the educator, the student, and the essence of learning.

Through this confluence of art, film, science, and technology, Generative Futures seeks to illuminate the path ahead, unearthing the wonders and the pitfalls that await us.
