Artificial Intelligence in Classrooms - The Future of Education

#artificialintelligence

With technological advancement and digitization, education industry is increasing at a fast pace. Education is changing dynamically with more and more privatization of this sector specially in India. From a data Fifty percent of India's population is the youth. This means that the Indian education sector is huge with a population of 1.13 billion. India has around 367 universities, 18,000 colleges, about half a million teachers, and 11 million pupils.

New research suggests that 87% of teachers are worried about the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) to have a negative impact on friendships and social skills in the classroom. Only 1% of the more than 5,000 UK teachers surveyed by Bett said they were wholly unconcerned by the possibility. Older teachers were more likely to have significant misgivings, with 45% aged over 50 professing to be "very worried", compared to 33% of counterparts in their 20s. On the subject of plagiarism, results were altogether more mixed, with 27% of respondents predicting that AI will make plagiarism more detectable and 32% worrying that it will be harder to spot.


14 ways AI will impact the education sector

#artificialintelligence

There have been a lot of digital "next big things" in education over the years--everything from the Apple IIe to online learning. The latest is artificial intelligence education tech (AI Ed), and only time will tell what impact it will ultimately have. But for something as important as education, now is the time to start talking about the benefits and challenges created by AI-powered personalized learning systems as they make their way into classrooms. Entefy covered this topic in previous articles: Old school no more: AI disrupts the classroom, which focused on teachers; and Artificial intelligence may transform education, but are parents ready?, which focused on parents. The clear near-term opportunity for AI Ed is to support teachers by taking over time-consuming, lower-value tasks like grading and recordkeeping.


Machine Learning in Education Opens a World of New Possibilities

From alarm's snooze in the morning to watching television at night, and all the activities in between – human life is increasingly influenced by machines. Today, machine learning has transformed devices with static pre-programmed software into smart machines driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI), giving them the ability to learn by themselves based on gathered data. Machine learning focuses on developing computer programs that can teach themselves to grow and update the program embedded in a device by analyzing incoming data. Defined as the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed, Machine learning is aiding human life by paving the path towards smart technologies such as self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, and effective web search. It has also improved the concept of understanding human genome in the field of biotechnology.

ADELPHI, MD - FEBRUARY 04: (AFP OUT) U.S. President Barack Obama tours a seventh grade classroom that uses technology to enhance students' learning experience, prior to delivering remarks on the ConnectED Initiative at Buck Lodge Middle School February 4, 2014 in Adelphi, Maryland. Virtual reality and artificial intelligence (AI) are becoming powerful tools needed to revolutionize education. Experts suggest the use of technology, with the integration of the ever-evolving cyber tools, will unify education and research environment and network. Despite the threat of artificial intelligence to rise up against humans and destroy humanity within decades, AI continues to prove its usefulness to mankind. Recently, artificial intelligence makes headlines for having a potential to provide solutions to various global issues such as poaching, illegal logging, cyber-\attacks, in aiding cancer diagnosis and in education.
