Artificial Intelligence, commonly known to the people as AI, is a system that allows machines to perform tasks like humans. It is believed that to make the computers do artificially what the humans do naturally is a tedious but worthy task. As the name suggests, artificial is something that is not natural, and intelligence is the ability to think and interpret things. So, this is a set of algorithms which when fed into a machine or a robot is intended to do the tasks which humans do naturally.
AI is not a new concept and was founded in 1955 by John Mccarthy. There are various experts working through the concept from a long time. Though this technology is used significantly in the automobile industry but with constant efforts, it is slowly making its way into other industries such as healthcare, research, education, etc. Experts from all over the world have designed and explained AI to incorporate into the education sector.
There are numerous benefits of employing AI in education-
Smart content– Every student has different calibre and methods of understanding the concepts taught in class. Smart content is the one that changes according to readers’ needs, unlike the static content which remains the same for all users.
Feedback to students’ performance – By closely analyzing the student’s performance history, AI systems provide feedback in order to improve the weak points.
Efficient grading– a significant amount of teachers’ time is devoted to checking the exam sheets and evaluating the students’ performance. When AI is used, the same can be done efficiently and teachers can focus on other productive activities for their students.
