SFUSD Position on Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)

Parents and school districts must prepare our children to live and thrive in a world transformed by AI. At SFUSD, like many other districts, much work remains in developing curriculum, policies, and best practices around AI. In the coming months, we will continue our collaborative efforts to explore options that align with Curriculum & Instruction, Data Privacy, and Cybersecurity. Stay tuned for more updates.

What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

 Artificial intelligence is a field of study in computer science. It deals with creating machines that are ‘intelligent’ and can perform tasks like a human. Examples of this in our everyday life are security robots and self checkout kiosks

Generative AI is a new technology that is rapidly expanding, and powers tools you may have heard of in the news such as ChatGPT,  Google Bard, Claude, Midjourney. AI uses information from various sources to provide its information. So, while a tool like ChatGPT might seem intelligent, it is really simply following instructions and information given to it to respond.
