Technology is indeed an essential indicator of human progress. Every day, there is a new discovery that would unfold another chapter of the world’s modernization. As computers get smarter each day, it may reach the level in which it may use an artificial intelligence (AI). Artificial intelligence is a vision in science in which machines can exhibit intelligence rather than humans. Despite doubts about its future existence, artificial intelligence promises advancements that could improve education:
As a smart and interactive machine, artificial intelligence can make the learning of an individual much more creative through various materials including videos, graphs, photos and presentations of the lecture. AI can take the teaching strategy to a whole new level through bringing the digital experience to the student.
AI can provide a personalized learning system in which the computer or the AI machine can provide much time on the individual learning. The AI can address solely on the individual’s strengths and weaknesses. Through this, the AI can determine if the individual has really learned.
Unlike a classroom setting in which students are obliged to follow a pre-determined syllabus, AI can create customized lecture plan and module. AI will make sure that the student has really understood the lesson before moving on to another discussion.
It takes time for teachers to evaluate the performance of their students. On the other hand, AI can provide real time evaluation in which it can automatically determine if there are mistakes or areas which the student could possible improve. It can also immediately assess the problem-solving skills of the individual.
Being an intelligent machine, AI is expected to know various languages. This can be perfect for everyone in the world as AI can manage to adjust to the culture and language of its student. This will address the learning gap between educators and learners with different cultures.
AI can grant education experience to our brothers and sisters who have not experienced education due to cases like oppression, disability, and poverty. Through this, these communities will be empowered and can enjoy the benefits of an educated person.
