10 Roles For Artificial Intelligence In Education

#artificialintelligence

For decades, science fiction authors, futurists, and movie makers alike have been predicting the amazing (and sometimes catastrophic) changes that will arise with the advent of widespread artificial intelligence. So far, AI hasn't made any such crazy waves, and in many ways has quietly become ubiquitous in numerous aspects of our daily lives. From the intelligent sensors that help us take perfect pictures, to the automatic parking features in cars, to the sometimes frustrating personal assistants in smartphones, artificial intelligence of one kind of another is all around us, all the time. While we've yet to create self-aware robots like those that pepper popular movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars, we have made smart and often significant use of AI technology in a wide range of applications that, while not as mind-blowing as androids, still change our day-to-day lives. One place where artificial intelligence is poised to make big changes (and in some cases already is) is in education.

At present, there's an ongoing dialogue about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and what it could mean for the human race. Many believe that AI is an opportunity for growth and major improvement, but others worry that there may be repercussions.


Teachers Should Embrace Artificial Intelligence in Education – MeriTalk

Automation has affected nearly every industry–47 percent of U.S. employees are at risk of computer automation, according to an Oxford University study–and teachers are no longer exempt. While automation in the classroom started with automated lights, it is now expanding to automating tasks with artificial intelligence (AI) machines. While some technophobes may paint a picture of robots replacing teachers in the near future, nearly all technology experts agree that this is highly unlikely. Rather, AI will just help teachers increase efficiency and improve their classroom management. The Clayton Christensen Institute, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank dedicated to improving the world through disruptive innovation, recently released a new report, "Teaching in the Machine Age: How Innovation Can Make Bad Teachers Good and Good Teachers Better."
