Though yet to become a standard in schools, artificial intelligence in education has been taught since AI’s uptick in the 1980s. In many ways, the two seem made for each other. We use education as a means to develop minds capable of expanding and leveraging the knowledge pool, while AI provides tools for developing a more accurate and detailed picture of how the human mind works.
AI’s digital, dynamic nature also offers opportunities for student engagement that cannot be found in often out-dated textbooks or in the fixed environment of the typical four-walled classroom. In synergistic fashion, they each have the potential to propel the other forward and accelerate the discovery of new learning frontiers and the creation of innovative technologies.
Artificial Intelligence will have a tremendous impacto in Education.
