He will deliver the keynote on “Four-Dimensional Education for the Age of Artificial Intelligence”. 
 
Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Big Data, Biotech, Nanotechnology etc. are redefining what it means to be human, and succeed in life and work. The world of the 21st century bears little resemblance to that of the 19th century, so educational curricula must be deeply redesigned for versatility and adaptability, employing all of the four dimensions of Knowledge, Skills, Character and Meta-Learning, and the interplay between them.
