How colleges are using AI to save time on operations

North Carolina's public community colleges had a problem. Although the system had a wealth of learning resources faculty members could use to develop their courses, there was no simple way to share and organize those materials across all 58 campuses.That will soon change, however, with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). Through the machine learning company Tanjo, the community college system is rolling out a custom AI "brain" in the coming months that will map and organize its digital content. The new tool will be critical to linking faculty to relevant resources, said Richard Boyd, Tanjo's CEO. Rather than wade through thousands of files in disparate places, faculty members will be able to use the AI system to source documents of interest to them from a central location."Say a faculty member goes to a conference and learns about cloud computing ... and comes back with stuff they can use to build a new curriculum," Boyd explained. "That has been captured, it's mapped and it's made available to anybody else who's trying to do something similar. That's extraordinarily powerful."
