LAB Overview:  “Spend 2 days with dozens of Learning Leaders and Innovators from major corporations exploring, experimenting and strategizing how AI, Generative AI, Content Curation AI, Augmented Media and other emerging technologies may change, enhance, extend, replace or disrupt workplace learning! - Elliott Masie, Host


Context: AI is a provocative and also controversial force in the world of technology, business and education. Elliott Masie has created an interactive and experiential event to help learning professionals better understand and imagine how learning organizations, business units and learners themselves might (or might not) evolve learning processes with the rapidly expanding set of AI tools, systems and strategies.

MindMap of Content for AI & Learning LAB: Here is Elliott Masie's starting "Mind-Map" for our content and process in the LAB & Briefing. It will expand by each participant's interests and organizational context: 



















We will explore AI & Learning by using a range of current and emerging AI, Chatbot, Generative Engines and Embedded tools and systems from various sources.  AI Generative Tools and Systems from OpenAI, Microsoft, Google, Khan Academy and a range of other technology innovators will be explored in the LAB.   We will also investigate the role of AI emerging as a component of Learning Systems, Apps and Tools.
