​​​​​​​​​​​The 18th International Learning an​​​d Technolo​gy Conference

"Artificial Intelligence: Towards Digital Transformation of Life, Work and Education​"

28th of January 2021

15th of Jumada II 1442

Effat University, Jeddah, KSA

Artificial intelligence (AI) is reshaping how we live, learn, and work. AI used to be a fanciful concept from science fiction, but today it's becoming a daily reality as we are surrounded by intelligent systems capable of performing our needs and assisting us with our daily tasks. It is not just about automating traditional tasks, today AI is becoming a method to fight against the viral pandemic that affected the entire world since early 2020. As a scientific community, we share the expectation that the CORONA virus can be addressed using AI and data science. AI and human ingenuity will profoundly affect the quality of life and how people live, learn, and relate to society,

The 18th International Learning and Technology Conference aims to be a meeting point for specialists in Artificial Intelligence technologies to help people living smart, more independent and active at work or in their community. The 18th L&T Conference aims at facilitating the exchange of information and dissemination of best practices, innovation and technical improvements in the fields of intelligent life, smart health, crowdsourcing and sentiment analysis, clinical analytics, smart education, smart working environment, social coordination, and ambient assisted living. From e-Health to intelligent systems and ICT devices, the conference aims to be a vibrant discussion and collaboration platform for all those interested in R & D to promote AI in different life activities through research, industrial presentations, demos, and project descriptions. The conference will feature keynote presentations, thought-provoking paper presentations, and stimulating panel discussions covering the latest developments in AI
 technologies.  ​

The proceedings of the conference will be hosted by PROCEDIA, Elsevier.

Join us and explore new collaboration opportunities, cultivate your social and knowledge networks, and compliment your core experience!
