This Is How Artificial Intelligence Will Shape eLearning For Good

Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a high-level overview of how artificial intelligence works (some of it, at least) and how it will shape e-learning in the future. The article cautions (and I agree) that AI is just a tool. "Holding the creators of algorithms liable is not technically fair though. The systems learn from the data being processed, not from the algorithms themselves. And in verticals where safety and compliance is non-negotiable, such as a learning environment, this could present a radical problem." The same applies to human learning. We don't have built-in content algorithms. Learning depends on the experiences we present to learners (or the experiences they are able to find for themselves).
