AI in Education: The Video

Education and training are absolutely critical to the new economy. Yet we are having increasing difficulties in satisfying these needs. As huge populations demand higher education, institutions are stretched. While the continued movement of education online with MOOCs has created new possibilities, these training programs have suffered from low completion rates and have not proven adequate to meeting the growing crisis. Artificial Intelligence is now opening new avenues for improving the availability and effectiveness of education through a more interactive online experience and more effective processes for meeting educational goals.

The use of AI in education is a natural. Educational institutions have long led research across a variety of topics in technology. In a case of “physician heal thyself,” AI research can be turned to solving the problems of higher education. Jobs are becoming more knowledge- and skills- focused; vast numbers of new workers are joining the workforce globally; barriers are falling constantly as network access makes it possible to perform jobs as easily from Chicago as from Bangalore; and growing demands for success and prosperity, fueled by access to greater information about the rest of the world in every village, are creating a huge and previously untapped market for learning.

The jobs of tomorrow will require new training. Meanwhile, educational institutions are becoming increasingly expensive. Aspirations of the billions of people who need higher learning to achieve success will not be thwarted. As with every other sphere, the needs of the many will drive the market away from the few.

AI offers ways of improving the educational process; of improving interaction with students; of determining appropriate curricula; of tailoring education to personal and institutional needs; and of collaborating with teachers and schools in extending their efforts to a wider community. As we move into a new era, all of these issues need to be explored. AI will not replace teachers or schools; it will simply make it possible for everyone to achieve the learning results that they need to prosper in an increasingly complex, and knowledge-driven world.

Here we will look at a set of videos on this topic, with their published explanations.

Artificial intelligence & the future of education systems (TEDx Talks)

Published on Aug 4, 2016

Dr. Bernhard Schindlholzer is a technology manager working on Machine Learning and E-commerce. In this talk he gave at TEDx FHKufstein, Bernhard Schindlholzer contemplated the implications of ephemeralization – the ability of technological advancement to do “more and more with less and less until eventually you can do everything with nothing” – through artificial intelligence and machine learning. He explores the challenges that this technological approach poses to our economy and, furthermore, how they could be addressed by questioning established norms of our education systems.

Neuroscience, AI and the Future of Education | Scott Bolland (TEDx Talks)

Currently around 63% of students are disengaged at school, meaning that they withdrawal either physically or mentally before they have mastered the skills that are required to flourish in later life. In this talk Scott Bolland explores the science of learning, the mismatch between how we teach and how the brain natural learns, and the important role that artificial intelligence could take in addressing the limitations in our current education system.

Dr Scott Bolland is the founder of New Dawn Technologies, a high-tech software company aiming to revolutionise education through the use of artificial intelligence. He has spent the last 20 years actively researching and teaching in the field of cognitive science – the scientific study of how the mind works – which spans disciplines such as psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, artificial intelligence and computer science. He holds a PhD in this field, as well as a university medal for outstanding academic scholarship.
