LITE 2018 – The Impact of AI on Education [John Peebles]

  1. 1. Artificial Intelligence and Education
  2. 2. What is AI?
  3. 3. “A little AI, a little ML…”
  4. 4. The traditional problems (or goals) of AI research include reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, learning, natural language processing, perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects.
  5. 5. En Passant It is the only capture in chess in which the capturing piece does not replace the captured piece on its square.
  6. 6. THE FUTURE of AI
  7. 7. “I think there’s a world market for about 5 computers.” Thomas Watson Jr., IBM
  8. 8. “There’s no chance the iPhone will get any significant market share.” Steve Ballmer, Microsoft
  9. 9. Prediction Time The main impact of AI on Education will be to facilitate less overt tech within the educational process.
  10. 10. Uhh, what?
  11. 11. Things Humans are Good At: Creativity and Reasoning Personal Connections Innovation and Flexibility
  12. 12. Things AI is Good At: Pattern Matching Making Data Driven Decisions
  13. 13. “Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives.” – Andy Rooney
  14. 14. “Life is amazing: and the teacher had better prepare himself to be a medium for that amazement.” – Edward Blishen
  15. 15. Great Teaching Transcends Technology
  16. 16. The chief goals of AI within the educational environment should be facilitation, augmentation, curation, and instrumentation. i.e. “Support” or the “Teacher’s Aid”
  17. 17. Identifying student weaknesses. Monitoring curriculum effectiveness. Improving scheduling. Decision support. Responding to demand.
  18. 18. OK, so what?
  19. 19. Gimme some sweet, sweet AI
  20. 20. Bad News Garbage In = Garbage Out
  21. 21. Most educational environments don’t even have a garbage (rubbish) can (bin)!
  22. 22. No Platform = No Data = No Garbage In = No Garbage Out = No AI
  23. 23. The Platform for Education
  24. 24. • Humans and AI will each play to their strengths. • All teachers could use a little help, and this is where AI will excel. • AI will also facilitate less overt tech within the classroom, and thus positively impact educational outcomes. • No data living within an accessible platform? No AI for you! Recap
  25. 25. Thanks!
