Jeffrey Luks, NERIC manager of student services and Dr. Gary Margolis, founder and CEO of Social Sentinel will discuss the opportunities and challenges of deploying artificial intelligence (AI) in school safety. Never before have we had at our disposal such powerful computers. They fly planes, drive cars and perform surgery but not without their human partners. In his presentation, he will explore the nature of artificial intelligence, its strengths, and its limitations and identify the role of human involvement in its successful deployment. Dr. Margolis will dive into the careful and critical balance of achieving awareness through AI with respect to privacy and free speech to help schools create an environment and culture that is free from harm and nurtures freedom to learn.
