SEMT104 CANCELLED: What Is It, and Why Should I Care? A Deep Dive on Emerging Tech in L & D
1:15 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: Emerging Tech Stage
With the technology landscape changing rapidly, questions are posed to L&D to answer how emerging technologies could be leveraged to improve learning and development across organizations. You may be an emerging technology guru and able to answer these questions easily, or you may be like many of us and struggle to find the time to do your research on every emerging tech trend in L&D.
In this session, you’d learn the information you need to speak with authority on current emerging technologies, their relevance to L&D, their potential impact, and how to get started in exploring their use. Topics will include blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), chatbots, AR, VR, biometrics, machine learning, adaptive learning, and more. You’ll leave this session armed with the data you need to determine which emerging technologies are most relevant for your organization, which ones may be interesting to explore in the future, and how your organization can be ready for the next wave of emerging technologies to expand your L&D portfolio.
In this session, you will learn:
- What emerging technologies are on the radar for L&D
- How each emerging technology is relevant to L&D
- What companies have been early adopters/explorers in each emerging technology
- Who the major vendors are for each emerging technology (where relevant)
- How to get started in researching or piloting each emerging technology
Designers, developers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VPs, CLOs, executives, etc.).
Technology discussed in this session:
Blockchain, AI, chatbots, AR, VR, biometrics, machine learning, adaptive learning, predictive analytics for learning.
