Artificial Intelligence has mushroomed in the last year. It has made life easier in many ways although its use still requires safeguards.

In this series, renowned education lawyer and former General Counsel for NSW Education, Michael Waterhouse, answers the following questions:

  • What are the legal and ethical issues arising from AI for teachers?
  • What steps can be taken to mitigate breaches of privacy and misuse of intellectual property through AI?
  • How can AI be used to assist in deterring or preventing criminal behaviour and protect students and staff?
  • How can AI be used to improve access and quality of education to students, educators and parents?
  • How can we ensure AI systems are accessible, consensual, fair and ethical in a constantly changing world?
