Dr. Gunjan Gupta & Amit Singh, co-founders of Lightsphere AI Inc, a Bellevue, WA based AI company, gave an introductory talk at the 2018 Parent University event at Tyee Middle School on the future of careers in the age of Advanced AI and how young people entering into the process of selecting their tracks for a career need to think in order to keep up with the rapidly changing job market.
This was a talk by invitation from the Tyee school and PTSA, and was part of a series of seminars that included other speakers. Â The presentation focused on issues and advice for college admissions for students in eighth grade all the way up to college level. The session was especially designed to showcase and explain how an âearly start in self-exploration for possible career optionsâ can have a huge effect on successfully finding a good matching program for a productive and satisfying long-term career. Important information was shared about how rapid changes in the job market due to automation and shifting demographics are requiring a change in the way students need to think, explore, apply and pursue post-secondary education for success.
The workshop was attended by around 52 students and parents and was very well received, both by parents and the PTSA; thanks a lot to Tyee Assistant Principal LeAnn Tuupo, Tyee PTSA President Mei Chen, BSF Ambassador Rob Fatlan, and the rest of the organizers and PTSA board members for their support.
We received great reviews from the talk and a lot of interest for a follow-up session for the first time, we shared with public, and especially students who are about to enter high-school, a very important discovery from our research on AI to help students that is likely to change the way we think about education and career.
The discovery we presented is closely tied to our suberin product; over the coming weeks we will be conducting summer camps in Seattle and Chicago area, where we would go even deeper in sharing some of the really cool tech our team is building.
