Using Technology & AI to Make Schools Safer

Acts of violence in our schools have redefined how we think about student safety and mental wellness. Frustratingly, most proposed solutions tend to focus on further fortifying and arming our facilities. In the age of big data and digital transformation, technology can be used to help address the problem. Our panel will explore how digital technology can be used to uncover ‘pre-incident indicators’ allowing schools to take preventative measures to improve the safety and wellness of our students.
