Education through machines is a reality. From industry to business and to education now, it is time to lose our reservations and embrace artificial intelligence. Teachers can see the limitations that technology can't or doesn't observe. However, there is no scalable way for students to closely engage with teachers as class sizes grow. This leads to gaps of knowledge between the lessons teachers submit to their administrators and the principles students are able to absorb.

There are a lot of aspects to learning and a lot of dedicated people that work together for a better education system. From old teaching methods to innovative technology, schools need to deliver the best education if we want our kids to stand a chance when facing the unknown future.
From machine learning to smart sensors, today, social as well as economic ecosystems are surrounded by the dynamics of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Furthermore, the presence of robotics is perceived as a powerful catalyst for industrial productivity and economic growth. Artificial Intelligence in association with the other path-breaking technologies of the present times is increasing the efficiency of people as well as machines in every sector, and prominently in the education sector. Today, Artificial Intelligence has already made long strides in the academic world, transforming the traditional methods of imparting knowledge into a comprehensive system of learning using simulation and augmented reality (AR) tools. Interactive study material comprising text as well as media files can be shared very easily among the interest groups and with the help of smart devices, they can utilise the study material rather effectively as per their convenience.
