How Artificial Intelligence Shapes Education

Artificial Intelligence pretty much runs through the veins of modern day society. Today you’d see cars that park by themselves and computers that launch missile codes. Social Media platforms have far outstripped their predecessors and keep culling power. Gone are the days when students only had pens and notebooks to save their notes on.

In every sense of the word, artificial intelligence has progressed in unthinkable ways and has helped advance key industries like Science and Technology, Transport, Communication, Healthcare and the Military. The education sector is another area that is poised for radical changes with the implacable headway of artificial intelligence.

One of the most influential personages of our time, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, believes artificial intelligence stimulates human intellect. At present, customized learning software positively affects our learning curve as it allows more room for improvement. Quoting what he said in an interview with The Verge:

Today’s interactivity is OK: I answered a few questions wrong, so then it repeats the lecture. [With an AI tutor,] I can engage in a dialogue. You know, part of the reason I’m so willing to tackle new subjects is that for each of those subjects, if I get utterly confused, I know somebody I can send an email to, and they’ll straighten me out. If you can’t have somebody straighten you out, and say, “Is this as complicated as I think? Am I missing something here?” then you’re probably not as ambitious.

The Philippines is one of the countries in Asia that targets developing and improving more advancements and inventions in the field of technology. The Department of Science and Technology, headed by Secretary Fortunato T. dela Peña, looks to add AI on its research and development agenda for the years 2017-2022. The agency aims to explore areas not necessarily new to the global community, but untouched by local research.

AI is crucial in gathering and consolidating data for analytics and content creation.  It evaluates content quality and relevance to identify which chunks of information are ad rem and informational.
