In the course of its work as part of its activities, The University of Sherbrooke organized a conference about the emergence in artificial intelligence. The conference on the 21st of March was focused on determining the effects of artificial intelligence on the area of education.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be defined as the capability to mimic the cognitive capabilities of a machine. Professor of Computer Science, Froduald Kabanza describes that artificial intelligence has already been present everywhere, be it the autopilot in transport vehicles or the detection of tumors by computers , or the personal assistants on smartphones, like Siri, the Computer Application Siri.

Artificial intelligence is created by artificial intelligence algorithms, also known as intelligent algorithms, due to their ability to be able to learn independently. This new technology is able to reduce mistakes and enhances the user experience.

Contrary to the basic algorithms or conventional data that requires coding by human programmers artificial intelligence algorithms depend on mathematical models that are inspired by the neural brain. Artificial intelligence gives the user continuous improvement of his skills called “deep understanding.”

Artificial intelligence is at the center of education

The possibility exists to automatize certain aspects of education, such as Assessment Corrections, according to Sawsen Lakhal, a professor at the Department of Computer Science.

Artificial Intelligence also allows users to adapt learning to the individual’s requirements and abilities. For instance, smart technology will provide them with exercises that match the level of their learning.

In addition, within the academic area that is Health Sciences, students can recreate the scenario where they have to communicate and interact with the patients, in a real and complex scenario.

Despite the advantages of being immersed in the practice and learning of the academic community artificial intelligence is still costly and unattainable to all universities.

Enhance learning by using artificial intelligence

This technology can be an effective model for students according to Mark Couture, education consultant for ICT integration.

It’s a device that aids the teacher, in a way that does not replace him, and also helps him identify students who are in the classroom in the event of the teacher’s failure.

Artificial intelligence could “really provide an indication to the teacher of shortcomings that the student might be suffering from,” decrees Froduald Kabanza. Additionally, Jean-Hermann Guay, a professor at the School of Applied Politics, says that AI can help teachers get rid of routine tasks, allowing teachers to develop and personalize teaching techniques.

Educational software is able to be tailored to the specific needs of students.

From kindergarten through graduation, one of the primary tools used by AI can be used to impact the lives of students by implementing levels of personal learning.

The amount of learning software including games, software, and games is increasing by a factor of. AI can perform many tasks by itself, like translating texts, generators to reword the text and detect fraud and recording using the power of speech recognition, and do a variety of other tasks to aid human life.

They focus on particular topics which are recurrent elements that students may not have learned in the past, and allow them to move at their own pace. This type of individualized education is a possibility to assist students at different levels participate within the same classroom. Assistance and individual support is possible.

Artificial Intelligence can automate fundamental education activities, such as tests and assessments.

In the college setting, tests create a lot of work for the faculty. They observe that tests take an enormous amount of time. This time could be utilized to interact with students, plan their classes, or finish their education.

While artificial intelligence cannot completely substitute for humanclassification but it does come close. Multiple-choice questions are able to benefit from automated classification. Certain applications even permit you to design multiple-choice questions that auto-correct.

Increased efficiency

Artificial intelligence can organize every IT process to provide new efficiency. For instance, it is able to process data at a rate that is unimaginable. The data is more precise and less likely to contain human errors. The accuracy and the coverage makes it a necessary step to success.

In this sense artificial intelligence could be useful in an educational setting. To comprehend the importance that artificial intelligence plays in the field of education and effectiveness, take another look at this instance. Let’s say that the teachers are working to increase the safety of their students and reduce traffic congestion.

To minimize the risk of children being lost in crowds Artificial Intelligence can create complex models of data and allow data-driven predictions. The data can be used to plan for the future seating, allocation of seats meals, seat allocation, and cost management.

Artificial intelligence isn’t only essential for teachers however, it is also important for students. The implementation of these technologies may be costly. However, every dollar spent on this software is worth it. Additionally, experts are studying the development in this field.

They believe that it can be utilized by lower education institutions, as well as higher educational institutions. This is why it appears to me AI is a great adaptable strategy.


Artificial Intelligence has a massive impact on education. When utilized to its full potential, it could transform the entire sector by providing students with an environment where they can flourish. Artificial intelligence is also beneficial for teachers. It’s an efficient and practical option when it comes to administrative tasks or gathering information. In any event artificial intelligence is a wise investment.
