rtificial Intelligence has a huge potential to accelerate India’s economic growth, and by some estimates can add USD 1 trillion to India’s economy by 2035
Whenever people think of Artificial Intelligence (AI), people often think of a talking humanoid, like JARVIS (a fictional character in Marvel movies). But, we have a long road ahead in achieving that. Technological development is constantly revolutionising the way we lead our life. The use of Artificial Intelligence in areas such as healthcare, urban infrastructure, retail and mobility has the potential to revolutionize these segments over the course of the coming years.
Educational tools enabled by AI have recently attracted attention for their potential to improve education quality and enhance traditional teaching and learning methods. AI enabled learning tools has a great scope for profitability in developing countries like India. Artificial Intelligence has a huge potential to accelerate India’s economic growth, and by some estimates can add USD 1 trillion to India’s economy by 2035. Therefore, the government of India has taken several measures to boost the implementation of AI.
Recently, Synerise S.A. is an official partner of Microsoft, and is a global pioneer in the field of using AI, is looking to enter into partnerships with Indian governmental and non-governmental agencies, as well as private sector enterprises. The company will enhance the quality and efficiency of education offered to students in India.
Preventing School Drop-outs
Artificial Intelligence facilitates personalised learning. The AI learning technology tailors learning material, pace, sequence, and difficulty to each student’s needs. AI can also provide support for special needs students, for instance by teaching autistic children to identify facial expressions.
Artificial Intelligence is increasingly being used to develop one-on-one student learning and thus, preventing the chances of school dropouts.
Enhanced Learning Support
AI programs help in engaging the students in dialogue, answer questions, and provide feedback. There are some basic AI-based tutoring programmes already in prevalence and they can impart knowledge related to basic mathematics, writing skills, environmental studies etc. This helps the students to explore their learning abilities.
Synerise S.A. is already actively involved in adapting AI solutions to academic institutions in Europe. The company recently launched AI Schools & Academy, an innovative educational programme which employs AI, cloud computing and online educational courses and databases, with the aim of fostering organic learning to students, thereby allowing them to develop and explore their own capabilities. The company is also planning to launch it in India to enhance the quality and efficiency of the Indian education system.
Trial and error is a significant part of learning. But for many students, the idea of failing, or even not knowing the answer, is tormenting. Artificial intelligence provides students with an innovative way to experiment and learn in a relatively judgment-free environment. AI tutors can also offer solutions for improvement. In fact, AI systems themselves often learn by a trial-and-error method so it is the perfect format for supporting this kind of learning.
