Teaching students about artificial intelligence and machine learning

#artificialintelligence 

Each day, we read more news about artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and their uses for not only work but, more importantly, education. About a year ago, I started to research these areas. While I understood the concepts of both and could offer a decent definition, I was not able to easily identify what it might look like in today's classrooms. My first interaction with machine learning came some years ago when I worked on my Spanish translation coursework. Our focus was on the level of accuracy that ML-translation provided for students and for businesses looking to use these services.
