The SentiraXR team will shortly be heading to Ulster University to take part in the National Conference on Generative AI in Education. The event takes place in person at the University’s Derry~Londonderry campus from the 22nd to 24th January.

We’re delighted to have been asked to present around the use of generative AI to interact with patient avatars. Jeremy Carter and Sentira founder, Dr Tony Payton will discuss our pioneering virtual reality training simulations for medical education and outline our experiences using generative AI NLP.

Following the presentation we’ll host a workshop where participants can see a range of healthcare training simulations that use generative AI in VR. These will include training in medical history taking, tracheostomy and drug delivery. For insight into exactly what we do at Sentira, take a look at our recent showreel.

The National Conference on Generative AI in Education aims to give educators, researchers, teachers or students an understanding of how generative AI is revolutionising learning, teaching and assessment.

The conference boasts an impressive speaker lineup. Delegates can expect a series of fascinating keynotes, talks, discussion panels and workshops on AI. They can learn about the latest, cutting-edge technologies and large language models such as ChatGPT, Bard, Claude 2 and Copilot(s). They’ll gain an understanding of how these tools and natural language processing capabilities enable personalised and interactive learning experiences.

In addition, there’ll be a hackathon on AI + Assessment and networking events with leading academics, researchers and industry experts in this area.

The Garfield Weston Trust funds the National Conference on Generative AI in Education.

Registration is now open. Register early as places are limited.

AI in Medical Education: A Jisc Webinar

Explore the use of AI in medical education:A JISC webinar

On October 19th, we’ll be taking part in a Jisc webinar that seeks to explore the use of AI in medical education. The session is aimed at anyone working in the field, regardless of whether they have experience using AI.

Educators who have already trained using AI or VR technologies will have the chance to see how Sentira is leading the way in extending this concept.

Attendees new to XR technologies in medical training will see first-hand what is now possible in this area.

Join us for this session where we’ll demonstrate the onboarding, learning and assessment features of Sentira while showcasing our groundbreaking paediatric tracheostomy simulation. We’ll also show how VR and AI can be used to train users in patient history taking and clinical reasoning. Jeremy and Tony will be available after the showcase to answer attendees’ questions.
