In the second in a two-part series hosted by Kevin Roberts of the digital innovation firm Robots and Pencils, Tuthill and Bradshaw continue discussing a partnership between Step Up For Students and Jacksonville-based artificial intelligence company NLP Logix that aims to create a simple and customizable online platform for families who use education savings accounts to support their children’s education.
Tuthill, Roberts and Bradshaw discuss the new platform and its potential to create greater social capital for families that traditionally lack the resources of more affluent communities. They also discuss how tools such as artificial intelligence-based predictive analysis can assist families in successfully navigating the complex decisions they need to make to support their children’s unique educational needs.
“Having an (artificial intelligence and data) partner to educate us about what kind of data to collect privacy issues to manage … having that relationship is really important. It’s going to be transformational for education choice.”
