Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Converging Points
While machine learning is the application, which corresponds to part of the wider context of Artificial Intelligence technology. Namely, machine learning is the materialization of Artificial Intelligence concept, by providing machines with access to data. Furthermore, through processes, which involve algorithms and statistics, inferences are drawn through pattern recognition, of the collected data.
Pertinent to Education
that technologies, which were considered far-fetched decades ago, have become
integrant part of our lives. Even though, there are no applications that
deploy the full potentials of their context yet; however, there are
applications founded on the aforementioned technologies. Education is a sector,
where these two technologies have provided tools with the
potentiality to redefine learning and teaching experiences. Here
are 3 educational applications based on these technologies:
- The virtual course provider, Coursera, gives teachers the opportunity to map weak points in course materials. In addition, this online platform provides customized feedback to the students, regarding their submitted assignments; and, teachers are informed. Hence, high quality lesson delivery is provided; and, a common conceptual foundation is built among the students.
- There is an application that provides access flexibility, in terms of location, called Presentation Translator; hence, classrooms’ formation extends on a global scale. In addition, this software provides customized services, in cases of different language, visual or hearing disabilities.
- Finally, there are educational applications that have tutoring operation. These applications consist of different learning styles; hence, they provide customized teaching approaches, which enhance the learning experience.
