Artificial intelligence in education world

11 Mar 16
A recent article on Forbes talks about how artificial intelligence (AI) can play a significant role in the education industry. The world, as is, today is running on AI! From social media sites suggesting friends to cameras with sensors clicking the perfect picture to Siri managing our calendar- AI has sneaked into our lives through various entries. So, what is AI? It can be defined as the theory and development of computer systems that are able to perform tasks which normally require human intelligence. Visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages, are some of its features. However, one area where it is still prominently lagging behind is our education system. AI can help in evaluating the curricular materials and become a tool in adaptive learning. It can automate activities like grading in school. While AI may never be able to match human grading, it is getting quite close. Teachers, around the world, can now automate grading for various multiple-choice questions. How much is happening in India is yet to be recognised. Other benefit that can be drawn from it is through individualised learning with adaptive learning programmes, games and software. These systems can put more emphasis on topics where a child is facing problems in learning and can repeat things that students need to master. Thus helping each child to learn at his/her own pace! It can also help in improving the quality of education. For example, it can alert teachers about their lectures which are not being imbibed by the students or where they are confused. Coursera, a massive open online course provider, is using this by alerting a professor if a large number of students are giving wrong answers for an assignment. The teacher, can then, send customised messages to future students to avoid the same mistakes. While these are some of the ways AI has touched the education industry, there’s still a long way for it to become a universal language of education.
