The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Education.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Education.
Artificial intelligence gives machines the ability to respond as humans do, understanding events, learning from them, and reacting to them as an intelligent human would. The range of applicability in AI has widely expanded in the last three decades, from simple CCTV cameras to parking systems that require no human intervention and self-directed drones used by the military. It is, therefore, a wonder that AI applications in the education sector remain at an all-time low. However, the future is bright, and there will be many new roles for AI to play in “developed” classrooms one day. This is especially true with artificial neural networks making it possible for robots to perform tasks through simple observation without having to program them. This will ensure that they are expandable and make their use limitless in a school setting. Here are some ways artificial intelligence can be put to good use in the classroom.
Personalized learning: In the future, each child may have a personal robot throughout their school system, if not their entire lives, to act as a personal assistant. The robot will carry all the information taught to the child, making it a personal tutor whenever required. A closer relationship will ensure pupils have a better grasp of all that is being taught. This continuous integration will surely skyrocket learning. Teacher’s assistants: Most teachers are overloaded with work that goes beyond just teaching students. But certain tasks, such as some grading, could be done by robots. Taking a portion of this burden from teachers could not only simplify their tasks, but also give them a better time while dealing with students and their personal lives. In this future situation, it will be important to be watchful of the level of freedom we give to robots. Some would advise you to be careful what you wish for! But as AI looks like it will be the inevitable way for the future, we can look forward to enhancing education and getting personalized learning experiences.
