Artificial Intelligence and Education


The development of artificial intelligence (AI) has had a huge influence on today's society, as ongoing discussions evaluate the impacts of creating machines and computer systems that can react and perform like humans. These systems can process information in a more cognitive way, making them capable of more human-like functions like learning, decision-making, and visual perception. Hollywood portrayals of hyper-intelligent robots taking over the planet might make artificial intelligence seem intimidating, but there is a lot that can be gained by through these advanced computer systems. Without the element of human error, intelligent machines are capable of unmatched precision and accuracy, and since they don't require fundamental human needs like oxygen or food, they can perform tasks with far fewer limitations. In fact, AI is already popping up everywhere in our daily lives – through social media recommendations, virtual assistants on our smartphones, and even self-driving cars.
