How AI could influence teaching

December 21, 2020

Designing artificial intelligence tools that can teach other artificial intelligence tools is a new frontier of learning engineering, writes Rebecca Koenig. The author discusses how AI tutoring tools can provide faster, more efficient education through allowing teachers to build their own AI tutors. This could help increase course completion rates and reduce human labour. The article explains that in time, instructors may be able to teach AI “Apprentice Learners,” who will then teach real students. “We let the AI algorithm figure it out from its own data,” said Iulian Vlad Serban, CEO of Korbit. “Most of what it does is learning from the students. Students are teaching it to do better.” EdSurge (International)
