Outline of the event


University staff in the age of AI

In recent years, the development of AI has been remarkable, with special features on AI (Artificial Intelligence) being covered by many media, and the environment surrounding universities and university staff is about to change significantly along with social changes. While the use of AI can be expected to lead to more diverse and advanced initiatives, it is also necessary to review the nature of universities and the way university staff work. What should universities and university staff do in the coming AI era?
In this forum, we will deepen our understanding of AI and think together with the participants about what university education and university staff should be like in the AI era, how they should change, how AI should be utilized, and what kind of skills they need to acquire.
