Digital technologies and artificial intelligence are able to level the opportunities for equal access to education.

The use of artificial intelligence and digital technologies in the field of education can open up new opportunities for students, and first of all it is the expansion of equal access. If we talk about preschool education, then not in the distant future every child will be able to have his own personal teacher available 24/7, no matter where in the world he would not be.

 To make education with equal access for every child, it is necessary to ensure the digitalization of education worldwide. The problem of unequal access in education remains relevant. For example, the location of a school can determine educational opportunities, the more popular the school, the higher the prices for nearby housing, which creates social inequality and deprives many talents of the opportunity to realize themselves. Digital technologies and artificial intelligence may not eliminate inequality, but they can level up opportunities for children facing social and other difficulties.

These and other most acute and relevant topics will be discussed on November 15-16 in Almaty at the international conference on digital technologies in education "EdCrunch X", where the main topic is: "Equal access for everyone." 

Through 7 thematic tracks, conference participants will be able to learn how technologies are created, what new approaches and tools are already being used to ensure access of children and adults to quality education.
