New: Try my AI Bot new film

Gerd Leonhard’s new super-keynote format: Warsaw Futurist of the year event, April 11, 2024 (video and slides)

In this powerful, 180-degree-LED-walls-location, cinemax-like keynote, I addressed the impact of artificial intelligence on education, work, and jobs. Filmed in Warsaw at the Futurist of the Year event, on April 11, 2024, the session provides a riveting analysis of how AI is shaping knowledge work, education and other sectors and what it all means for education institutions.

More about this amazing event (and thanks to the organisers for making this video available).
