Applications of artificial intelligence in education

ACCORDING TO Oxford Language Dictionary: “Artificial intelligence (AI) is the theory and development of computer systems capable of performing tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.

“AI has become one of the hottest buzzwords of our time transforming human services into machine services with technology and good reason.

In recent years, several advances and innovations have taken place that were previously in the field of science fiction.

Now people feel in real life after the invention of AI. John McCarthy coined the term artificial intelligence at a conference in 1956.

The term AI gained momentum when Shakey (a general purpose mobile robot) was launched in 1969 for general education.

When a supercomputer, “Deep Blue”, was introduced by IBM in 1997, it was considered a huge milestone in AI.

The practical operation of AI started in 2002 when the first robot vacuum cleaner was introduced.

From 2005, the technologist never looked back and presented various applications such as speech recognition systems, dancing robots, Smart Homes and Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

Artificial intelligence is divided into four types: purely reactive, theory of mind, limited memory, and self-aware.

Purely reactive machines give the possible Result without observing data and memory as in a game of chess.

The theory of mind is used to understand thoughts and emotions; this kind of AI works together like a social human.

Constrained memory is that kind of AI that keeps the data and adds more information for a correct decision with minimal memory.

Self-aware AI is the latest technology for future generations, which is intelligent, aware and aware with understanding.

The Statistica report has explained that by 2025, the global AI application software market is expected to reach $126 billion.

The Gartner report states that 37% of organizations have deployed AI applications, which has grown to 270% in the past four years.

Servion Global Solutions has articulated that by 2025, 95% of customer interactions will be powered by AI.

As AI applications have been implemented in various domains, the education sector is one of the largest and most influential areas for all humanities in general and digitally savvy in particular.

AI is slowly taking root in education and this slow transition is increasing the productivity of both faculty and students.

Some of the main uses of AI are administrative tasks that have been automated to assist educators, such as facilitating and automating personalized messages to students, reviewing paperwork, providing routine feedback, course and HR related tasks, arranging and encouraging of interaction between parents and guardians, etc.

AI can help create innovative content such as video lectures, animation and learning content through customization from different grade levels.

It can also be used in textbooks and conference invitations, etc. AI has been declared one of the most productive applications for generating audio and video summaries of integral lesson plans.

Voice Assistants is yet another state-of-the-art application of AI that answers frequently asked questions from students without the intervention of the teacher and lecturer.

Hyper-personalization techniques are yet another application of AI to monitor lesson plans, study guides, habits and flashnotes of the students; this technology is very commendable for educational institutions.

Another transparent technology of AI is the navigation application that offers; timely, accurate and detailed information in educational institutions.

This technology uses GPS, a convolutional neural network, and a Graph neural network to detect users’ activities; it tells you the number of lanes and shows obstacles on the roads.

This application has been used by logistics companies telling them road traffic and route optimization; Uber and careem services are the best examples of AI.

Social media has become an important part of our people; we need it to communicate efficiently and effectively.

Artificial intelligence has been used by top social networking websites like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and so on.

These applications use AI to help educational institutions improve and market their services.

Facebook uses an application called Deeptext, which helps you understand conversations better; it can automatically translate your conversation into different languages.

Modern educational institutions display their Twitter activity using AI services to remove propaganda and hateful content.

This is an excellent resource for engaging your community members in openly sharing their thoughts.

Finally, educational institutions can use Chatbots, which use AI applications. This technology understands the natural language to respond to people online via live chat, one of the best uses for students and faculty.

Modern websites combine chatbots for live questions and answers. It provides 24/7 solutions for any question, the most remarkable application of AI. In short, AI and education have a strong connection of the imaginary world.
