From Academic Enrichment Coordinator, Stephanie Boyce
On Tuesday 30th July a group of Applied Philosophy and select students from Year 10 participated in a Cluster Day focussing on Artificial Intelligence held at Rosebank College with other participating schools, supervised by Dominic Hearne and Stephanie Boyce.
The students were immersed in an engaging presentation from Wise Tech Global who provided them with a company perspective on job opportunities and the future of Artificial Intelligence in society. Students also participated in a ‘Community of Enquiry’‚ which opened up many questions and discussion points including the ethical issues surrounding data bias, and whether or not AI Robots would eventually be eligible for human rights. All students who attended had their eyes opened to the many possibilities their future studies in various subject areas could take them in regards to the future of AI and beyond.
