Knowledge, Learning, Community

From the abstract: "this review examines AI applications in three educational processes: learning, teaching, and administration... the main AI applications in education are: predictive modelling, intelligent analytics, assistive technology, automatic content analysis, and image analytics." Ah, I love a well-written abstract. Anyhow, as the title suggests, this article (20 page PDF) approaches the subject from a Latin American context, where higher education "has shifted toward massification and universalization after initially providing access only to the elite" and faces "challenges, such as educational inequality, delays in graduation, and high dropout rates among students with low socioeconomic status." AI is being adopted in the region, albeit more slowly in education than in other fields, and suffers from "a lack of attention to ethics and data privacy." Good report. Brief. Clear.
