About Artificial Intelligence:
Artificial Intelligence is the science and engineering of creating intelligent machines or computer programs, this is how the father of artificial intelligence John Mc Carthy defines or describes it. It is one of the most effectual ways of making an adept and beyond belief computer, a robot controlled by computer, or software which seizes an aptitude and potential to think smartly.
AI woks on the principal of how a human brain thinks, learn, decide, and work in different situations or problems; it is a research wherein once the desired outcome is attained, is then used in creating extremely intelligent softwares and systems which can be of a great use. If we look at the two basic goals of AI, they are to create expert systems and implementing human intelligence in machines.
It is so effective that it can be used in any sphere, and can do wonders if used in the education sector.
Using Artificial Intelligence in Education:
Following are the things which Artificial Intelligence can do for Teachers and Students:
1. Enhancing Adaptive Learning: For good number of years adaptive learning has left an amazing mark in the education sector across the nation. Using Artificial Intelligence in order to augment the excellence of adaptive learning which fundamentally is using various software, programs, games that can assist students learn with no trouble and efficiently, can do wonders in the teaching as well as learning process. It will help the students master many topics or skills which they’ll be able to learn repetitively with the help of AI.
