Reatching into the Rabbit Hole: Should we replace teachers with AI?
13:30-16:30 January 26

Beginner level

@ 1A


Quality education is the basis of a functioning knowledge society. In our experimental event we explore the current state of education, before taking you on a journey through the rabbit hole into a world where artificial intelligence has replaced the human teachers in the classroom. Which skills can students acquire in an environment completely structured by algorithms? And are there teaching skills that only humans exhibit?


«Reatching into the Rabbit Hole» (RRH) is an experimental event by the science think tank «reatch - research and technology in switzerland». It uses (i) solid scientific knowledge to develop (ii) lofty ideas about tomorrow in order to (iii) gain insights for today. Each journey through the rabbit hole explores a scenario by creatively extrapolating the impact of a technology or field of research. RRH aids science communication by complementing the intellectual aspect with emotional and discursive interaction. More information on


Participants from any field who are open to actively and creatively develop ideas in teams are welcome.
