Education has intertemporal value in our society. Its main function is to instil values and mould attitudes and behaviours in line with societal norms. Additionally, giving students the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life is education’s secondary goal.

The dynamic nature of what is “required” in life, however, shifts as culture and technology advance. Hence the evolution and advancement of education have led to the birth of Education 4.0.

“AI is in a ‘golden age’ and solving problems that were once in the realm of sci-fi.” – Jeff Bezos.
