Artificial intelligence is filling countless pages in the media these days. The speed of its advances, its ethical limits, its possibilities, its current uses… All sectors, from health to industry, are embracing this technology and are looking for ways to benefit from it, while society and governments are debating and studying the ways to regulate its use. Education, of course, could not be left on the sidelines.
How can we include AI in the education system? Is it possible to involve teachers in the process? How will AI have an impact on social and educational inequalities? What role should the State play with a view to the potential impact of AI in education? What role should the private sector play?

In this interview, Axel Rivas, the report’s lead researcher, attempts to answer these questions with the help of the experts consulted in the research.
