Education and Artificial Intelligence

April 13, 2017

Artificial intelligence is quietly following a path that may bring immense changes to education

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing a great many workplaces, thanks to applications ranging from robot assembly lines to driverless taxicabs to stock trading algorithms, but there is also huge potential for positively influencing the classroom.


Machine Learning algorithms, programs that glean patterns from data and provide insights and suggestions, help teachers to find gaps in their teachings and point to where students are struggling with subject matter.


Spotting struggling students is just one of many potential benefits offered by AI in the classroom. In time, AI may grade students, keep teachers on point and, incredibly, even provide tutoring:


AI-based tutoring systems are another interesting concept that use big data and machine learning to provide personalized, supplemental guidance to students. An AI tutoring system will present a core theory and monitor student responses to evaluation questions. The feedback will enable the system to determine the best path to follow toward the mastery of the subject.


Will tutoring be another job made obsolete by technology? Perhaps -- but not anytime soon, thankfully.
