In this episode Bian Li speaks about her own experience and the sector-wide boom of EdTech during the pandemic and its potential long-term effects. She also speaks about the rapid and global changes to education and training, and on the overall perception of learning. There is mention of the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other technologies to improve the facilitation of learning and the exponential growth towards such changes in the world today. The episode ends with a deep discussion about the future of skills and how hyper customisation of learning will become the norm in the not-too-distant future.

She is a futurist, an authority in the SDG space and regularly comments on the intersection of technology and education.
