Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the computer’s ability or a robot controlled by a computer to do tasks usually done by humans. You may describe it as a branch of computer science which deals with building smart machines to perform specific tasks. Such tasks do require human intelligence for the same. There are ample examples of Artificial Intelligence present in our everyday life, such as, Google Map, various ride-hailing applications, face detection software, text editors or autocorrect, search recommendations, chatbots, digital assistants, e-payments, Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools, among others. The purpose of such technologies is to enable computers to perform intellectual tasks. These include functions like decision making, problem-solving, perception, and understanding human communication.
Below facts do justify the purpose of Artificial Intelligence:
- Automating of repetitive learning and discovery through Data
It helps in performing frequent and high-volume computerized tasks without fatigue. Though still for such works, we need a human inquiry.
- A perfect tool to add Intelligence
It helps in adding intelligence to existing products. This means that it adds value to the already existing application. You may see that conversational platforms, bots, and smart machines improve technologies.
- A helpful tool for more in-depth Data
Artificial Intelligence uses Neural Networks for the same. In India, the fraud detection system is possible just because of AI.
- Helps to achieve the Right Accuracy
The advent of AI with the help of deep neural networks is quite helpful. For example, interactions with Alexa and Google search, Google photos are possible due to AI.
How does Artificial Intelligence work?
This is a careful process of reverse engineering human traits and capabilities in the machine. Its ability of computational prowess is much use to human beings. It works by combining large amounts of data with fast, iterative processing and intelligent algorithms. Hence, it allows the software to learn automatically from patterns or features in the data. You need to know that cognitive computing is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence.
Essential Components of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence is an umbrella term for technologies that can learn from and are aware from their environment. Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Problem Solving, Reasoning, Neural Networks, Natural Language Processing (NLP) – all incorporates AI into their operations.
Contribution of Artificial Intelligence in the Field of Education
AI is an excellent gift for the education sector. AI reduces barriers to access learning, automating management processes. Moreover, it optimizes methods that help in the improvement of learning outcomes.
Below are certain advantages of AI in the education sector: –
- It helps in personalizing Education
With the help of it, teachers can make a personalized study schedule for the students. Hence, you can increase the student’s efficiency and fulfil their needs at the same time. AI takes the help of knowledge space theory for the same. It helps define and represent the knowledge gaps, thus taking into account the scientific complexity of the scientific concept.
- Helps in producing Smart Content
We get the gift of access to digital textbooks, study guides, bite-size lessons, and much more.
With taking the help of AI, you can have access to new ways of perceiving information. You get empowered with visualization, simulation, web-based study environments.
Regular Content Updates
You remain on track of updates of all necessary events. You have access to have the latest information.
- Gives relief from Task Automation
It is a valuable gift for time-consuming activities. Tasks like grading, assessing, replying to students get simplified with the help of AI.
Personal study programs are possible only due to Artificial Intelligence only. It has become a great time saver for the teachers.
- A Miracle for students with Special Needs
Students suffering from disabilities can find new ways of interacting with the help of AI. Students who have visual, deaf and people with ASD can make use of such devices.
How Globsyn Business School inculcates AI?
With a legacy of nearly two decades of amalgamating technology with education, Globsyn Business School (GBS) uses technology to not only supplement the knowledge dissemination system but also make its students more ‘technology’ sentient – a must have condition for today’s corporate environment. GBS stands on a strong scaffolding of technology that encompasses the whole gamut of students’ journey from getting enrolled in the MBA curriculum weaving a robust academic delivery mechanism to helping students track their own learning using a variety of assessment tools.
The B-School has included some of the rich quality courses like Industry 4.0 where students can learn the fundamental aspects and vital roles of Artificial Intelligence. The course integrates technologies linked with advance machine learning algorithm – an exclusive part of Artificial Intelligence. GBS offers several other courses such as Business Process Automation & Advance Data Analytics, ETGBE, among others, to help students to enrich their knowledge with several applications of Artificial Intelligence. GBS not only helps students in providing courses with the vast image of Artificial Intelligence, it also continues the legacy of acquiring innovative technologies to become resilient along with time. The Chatbot feature in the GBS website is an example of using AI effectively. It is typically a ‘live chat’ option that enables the bot to answer complex queries. The interaction is engaging, conversational, and lively. Chatbot also helps to understand customer’s choice and preferences.
Hence, the time has come for all the stakeholders of the academic community to work in tandem towards a common goal of building an ecosystem – with the right infusion of Artificial Intelligence and other technology based education – that will enable learners to continue acquiring, perceiving, and connecting necessary skills with greater flexibility.
