Teaching students about artificial intelligence and machine learning


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.
