What will AI Mean for Higher Education?
Our world is getting smarter by day. Technological innovations such as AI and robotics are disrupting almost every industry, forcing most companies to embrace them or lose out on their benefits. Recent studies have shown that the AI market alone is set to surpass $100 billion within the next five years (by 2025).
Even with the huge promises of AI, one sector that is falling behind when it comes to adopting these technologies is the higher education sector! Most universities and higher education institutions are still operating the old-fashioned way, which is noble, but a recipe for disaster.
Let’s go into details and see what AI means for higher education.
Combine ideas across various scientific boundaries
When applied to the sciences, artificial intelligence can combine different ideas across various scientific boundaries, reducing the overall cost involved in conducting research or collecting analyzing data. Better yet, AI can also help universities better collaborate with external parties, including clinical practice and medical research sectors.
Easy and quick analysis of student’s progress
Let’s face it; the education system isn’t as efficient as it should be. With AI, this could change. Analyzing the progress of students can be done effectively and quickly. By employing AI, professors can easily identify the weaknesses and strengths of students and therefore personalize their education.
Automation of routine academic tasks
When it comes to learning and teaching, the value of AI cannot be underestimated. The technology can be used to automate routine academic tasks such as grading assignments and managing documentation. This allows professors to concentrate their energy on tasks that cannot be completed with AI, and require human attention. Let’s look at an example of what AI can accomplish in
AI can effectively improve the quality of higher education. Besides cutting down the overall costs of analyzing and interpreting data in different scientific sectors, this technology can help professors personalize their student’s education. Better yet, higher education institutions can easily identify course flaws and institutional gaps and address them effectively.
