Student Profiled in 'Schools and the Future of Work' Featured on CBS News

| No comments

As technology reshapes the labor market, experts are sharply divided over what skills students will need to become successful in the workplace of the future. However, few of these experts would have a reason to worry about Emma Yang's future.

Yang, a 14-year old coder and concert pianist, spoke to CBS News' Jim Axelrod about Timeless, an app she developed that uses AI technology to help Alzheimer's patients recognize their loved ones. Yang was recently featured in Education Week's Schools And the Future of Work report, and is the first student featured in Education Week's  'Faces of the Future' series.
