AI Transforming Education – Inside Higher Ed

by | Nov 2, 2022 | Education

The era of AI management of big data is upon us. Even in the slow-moving field of education, big data is making a difference. Identifying trends that never before had been uncovered and using predictive analytics to generate models of the future are commonplace in all aspects of higher ed including tracking and predicting enrollment demographics. Much more of the text generated in our field than many realize is actually written by—or inspired by—AI! Sports reports, press releases and annual reports use AI in a variety of ways. GPT-3, the third-generation Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a neural network machine learning model trained using internet data to generate any type of text. Developed by OpenAI, it requires only a small amount of input text to generate sophisticated machine-generated text.AI research assistants are as prevalent as Siri and Google Assistant. More sophisticated assistants such as Elicit, Leo and Wizdom offer specialized assistance in academic research. In time, digital assistants will modify the way we set expectations for research reports in our classes. Already, Walden University’s “Julian” is an AI-powered tutor that is available to assist students round the clock.
Of course, the Jill Watson teaching assistant pioneered by Ashok K. Goel of Georgia Tech has evolved into an adaptable, anthropomorphic AI tool that has the potential to take on many of the common tasks of professors such as grading, providing feedback and answering student questions. The original version took some 1,500 person hours to program. Now Goel reports …
