AI Episode 3: Implications for Thought Leaders and Policy Developers
Author: Matthew Marino
In Episode 1 and Episode 2, we briefly described Artificial Intelligence in education and discussed how an AI teaching assistant looks like. To continue the conversation, what will the future of education look like as AI interfaces are continually refined? China is leading the world in AI research. The Chinese government is using AI to determine students’ level of focus in class. They gather data using head mounted plastic bands worn around students’ heads. The bands collect electroencephalogram (EEG) data, which is combined with high resolution camera footage, to determine when students are actively paying attention and engaged in a lesson. This data is available for teachers and parents in real-time. Take a look at this 6-minute video to learn about their experiment.
How do you feel after watching the video? Check out this article if you would like to learn more how AI has been used in the experimental classrooms. As an advocate for students and teachers, I immediately worry about the security of the data. Who will have access to it? Should a government agency have this information? How do you know it is reliable? Can it enhance student achievement? How will teachers use such information? There are many questions to resolve as educators move into the future with AI.
