Progress of

aspect of artificial intelligence in the field of education how fast? At present, it has infiltrated our classroom, teaching STEM courses, namely science, technology, engineering and mathematics teaching. Selden, former president of Wellington public school and vice president of University of Buckingham, believes that the potential of AI is far beyond basic mathematics and science teaching, and may also be taught in the humanities in the future. But this is a project of great potential, and there are still huge risks and potential problems in the process of completing it. The

on the development of artificial intelligence, now there is a more radical view is: "there are several things to be sure: death, taxes, human work will eventually be replaced by robots. "

, some of them, of course, will be replaced faster than other types of work, for example, accountants and couriers may be the first to bear the brunt. There are a lot of people believe that the most sophisticated algorithm program is also unable to capture the compassion and common sense and emotional factors, so similar to doctors and teachers do not have occupation robot impact, but the future is really the case?

Teaching: represent the general trend Wellington College (Wellington College), former president of the University of Buckingham (Buckingham University) vice president Sir selton (Sir Anthony Seldon) said earlier that the teachers there is a reason to worry about this point. He believes that in the next ten years, "very inspiring" robots will begin to gradually replace the work of teachers.

"this will provide everyone with an elite education equivalent to the Eton College or the Wellington public school.". Everyone can have the best teacher, get personalized teaching and run through the whole education stage. "

believes that teacher unions should be alert to this, and that its impact will change beyond the industrial revolution or any new technology".

of course, he does not think that teachers will be completely replaced by robots, but will work together - the role of teachers will be more inclined to guide, instead of focusing on imparting information, testing and scoring repetitive tasks.

Luckin Institute (UCL of Education) Professor Rachlin (University College London Rose) does not believe that artificial intelligence will completely replace the teacher. But he also warned, "if we don't prepare for the upcoming revolution of artificial intelligence, then it will face due to the shortage of teachers, due to economic factors and are forced to use artificial intelligence system to replace the teacher's dilemma. I don't think that's a good thing. "

artificial intelligence teacher" is one of the techniques that have been developed successfully, and is often used in early childhood teaching.

, the two humanoid robots developed by the Japanese Softbank Corp Pepper and Nao, carried out a pilot project in two preschool schools in Singapore last year, and achieved encouraging results. Pepper allows children to ask questions about the stories they just heard, and give them multiple answers on the screen for them to choose.

, but Rachlin believes that the AI technology used by British schools in the future will be more like a chat robot, or a virtual assistant like Amazon Alexa, who uses speech recognition technology to talk to people.

technology has been applied in the educational field. Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Institure of Technology) Gore (Ashok Goel) professor had named the robot automatic reply mail students ask the job successfully, from computer science students, they are often unable to distinguish from the real robot reply or teaching assistant -- only arouse suspicion is too high. Return speed. Can

robots teach humanities?

is now convinced that AI is good at teaching at least the school level STEM curriculum, that is, science, technology, engineering and mathematics. These subjects often have a clear correct answer, rather than English and other subjects, the same problem can have different answers.

however, the robot is not unable to participate in the teaching of literature, Rachlin believes that it can provide some support".

"AI" captures a lot of data about the interaction between people and technology, and human activities are moving around the world, so data on social media, physical conditions and brain functions can also be collected. "

" AI can get more information about individual emotion, health, and even cognitive state by processing these data. These can be used in the field of subjective learning, so that more students to participate.

argues that the potential of AI goes beyond basic math and science teaching. He says AI will make a big difference to the STEM curriculum. In terms of science, it will surpass the human capacity to liberate young people and involve them in the experiment.

"but I think it takes five to ten years for AI to enter social science, art and humanities need ten to fifteen years, and some knowledge of liberal arts can also be learned by related algorithms. The "

" of young people will be able to watch a scene in "Macbeth" from the three-dimensional perspective,
