How artificial intelligence is transforming the standard of higher education
Artificial Intelligence and machine learning have disrupted human activity since its inception in the 1960s. Today, we depend on intelligent machines to perform highly sophisticated and specific tasks without explicit human input. Rather, they rely on patterns and inferences instead. AI algorithms have been used in a wide variety of applications, from email filtering and computer vision to the disruption of the retail, travel and finance industries. An ancient sector of our economy, and one that has largely remained unchanged; education- has yet to realise the full implications of artificial intelligence within its operations. Until recently, university students are taught via a ‘one module fits all’ structure, within the confines of a classroom, with very little personal and individually constructed development procedures. Resultantly, our current model of higher education has produced, on the whole, an unspecialised and underutilised workforce. Such a workforce entering into an increasingly digital world economy or artificial intelligence and machine learning has been somewhat incompatible.
