Noodle Notes: AI for Education
This week we’re reading about the many ways AI is having an impact on education.
First up is Pearson, using AI in education to help enhance student’s test-taking experience by telling them how they went wrong on an answer so they can learn, not just marking an answer wrong. It may seem like a small thing, but it will matter to student morale. Euphaeus Learning talks about taking that idea a step further, here, to generate personalized learning experiences with AI.
Jason Zhou of Yixue Squirrel envisions an AI super teacher as a part of AI adaptive learning in the future. This one could be interesting, especially if used to enhance human teachers and amplify their knowledge base and capabilities.
CXOTalk is always worth a listen, and this episode with Dr. Shirley Malcolm of AAAS and Dr. David Bray of People Centered Internet discussing how AI is changing not just education, but job training, is no exception.
Last, but not least, we bring you thoughts from Singularity Hub, always an excellent source of thinking for the future. Here, Peter H. Diamandis, M.D., summarizes his recent white paper on using AI and virtual reality to modal a new future for education.
To see so many people thinking about how to improve education at every level gives us hope for a bright future. We believe AI can contribute greatly to the good of mankind, and education is the first step.
