Artificial intelligence (AI) has slowly but surely entered every area of our lives, from online shopping to TV viewing to everything. AI or Artificial Intelligence, in other words, is the study of man-made computational devices and systems. Today, AI has been a hot topic everywhere and is making its way into education. However, some say it will take over education to the impairment of students, whereas others indicate that AI will revolutionize and improve education.
So, what is its impact on education? Will it help students? Will it help teachers or make them obsolete? Artificial Intelligence does not minimize anything from classroom instruction, in fact, it enhances the quality of education. Over the last decade, there are several challenges of learning, including language processing, reasoning, planning, and cognitive modeling have been addressed by the artificial intelligence applications. In fact, both education and Artificial Intelligence have been made for each other. Whereas, education is a means to develop minds capable of leveraging the knowledge pool, while Artificial Intelligence provides tools for developing a more accurate and detailed picture of how everything works.
There are many advantages that artificial intelligence provide like tutoring, grading, any personalization in education, feedback on course quality, immediate feedback to students, etc., and a few previous examples really prove it such as :
Smart content creation, from digitized guides of textbooks to customizable learning digital interfaces, are being introduced at all levels. The ultimate goal of ‘Artificial Intelligence’ is also said to be a virtual facilitator for the learning environments. It is to create virtual human-like characters who can think, act, react, and interact in a natural way, responding to and using both verbal and nonverbal communication. It also aims to pave the way for new learning pathways in the coming years. Because education is a domain largely handled by human-to-human interaction. However, integration of AI has been slower to develop the necessary human-like attributes of responsiveness, adaptability, and understanding.
