Artificial Intelligence + Education
International Conference for Media in Education
23-25 July,2019 Shenzhen,China
Southern University of Science and Technology
UNESCO International Centre for Higher Education Innovation

The International Conference for Media in Education (ICoME) was initiated in 2002 by Korean Association for Educational Information and Media (KAEIM) and Japan Association for Educational Media Study (JAEMS). ICoME has been held twice in China: The first one was in 2012 at Beijing Normal University and the second in 2015 at the Northeast Normal University. This year it is coming to Shenzhen, China, during 23 to 25 July. Our 2019 theme is Artificial Intelligence + Education. The Conference is jointly organized by the Southern University of Science and Technology and the UNESCO International Centre for Higher Education Innovation. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a convergence of a widening spectrum of frontier technologies, and it has garnered the potential to bring new possibilities for sustainable development and societal change (UNESCO, 2019). In particular, AI has the potential to accelerate the process of achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) on the provision of inclusive, equitable, quality education and lifelong learning opportunities. It promises to reduce barriers to access, automate management processes, analyze learning patterns and optimize learning processes with a view to improving learning outcomes. However, the penetration of AI in education comes with concerns about ethics, security and privacy protection. And in the absence of policy intervention, the commercial deployment of AI may also exacerbate digital divides and deepen existing learning inequalities. 

 “Artificial intelligence can be a great opportunity to accelerate the achievement of sustainable development goals. But any technological revolution leads to new imbalances that we must anticipate.” 

Audrey Azoulay

UNESCO Director-General 

 Meanwhile, AI is fueling disruptive changes across sectors, and therefore is raising fundamental questions about how education can prepare individuals to live and work together with AI effectively and to foster inclusive societies. It is posing new challenges pertinent to all areas of education such as policy planning, promoting equity and gender equality, curriculum and resources development, teacher education, and skills development. 

To maximize AI’s benefits and mitigate its potential risks, it requires system-wide planning and collective actions to rethink and reinvent the foundation of education, as long as inputs from all stakeholders, including policy makers, system managers, and teachers, and others. The conference will start with keynote speeches, followed by a series of parallel discussions, workshops and debate. During the conference, exhibitions and workshops will be organized by high-tech companies, as our efforts to bridge the theory and practice. 

Goals and Objectives 

ICoME 2019 aims to build a platform for scholars, technicians, and entrepreneurs to: 

• Navigate the policy making and institutional administration regarding the integration of AI to the educational sector for future development; 

• Exchange information on the latest AI trends around the world: how these trends are shaping the landscape of teaching and learning? What knowledge and skills are needed for students for the future workplace? How to conduct scientific observation, evaluation and research of relevant educational phenomenon? 

• Promote the international collaboration for equitable, inclusive, and transparent use of AI in education: how to create lifelong learning opportunities for all, how to empower education in developing countries, and how to approach the gender and ethical issues? 


A synthesis report as the main achievements and outcomes of the Conference will be published. 

Target Audience 

ICoME 2019 is expecting more than 500 participants, including representatives from universities and international organizations, leaders of the AI industry, academic experts, policy makers and practitioners.
