In this exciting and innovative 1-hour workshop, Paul and Craig will explore and highlight a range of AI technologies to support dyslexia.
AI is increasingly being integrated into our everyday gadgets and lives, e.g., smartphones, computers and devices, such as Alexia and Siri, now incorporate AI. Companies such as Google, Apple and Microsoft are developing newer and more sophisticated apps and programs that use AI, which are now appearing in teaching and learning applications including Office 365 and Google Docs.
Join this workshop to see how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be used to support learners with dyslexia!
