AI is changing education with the help of advanced models like OpenAI's GPT 3.5 and GPT 4.
Harvard University is using an AI chatbot instructor in its Computer Science 50 course.
Here are the effects of AI in education and how it can impact teachers and students.
According to the India Today report, Harvard's decision to use an AI chatbot instructor in CS50 demonstrates its dedication to utilising cutting-edge AI technology in education.
The AI teacher, based on OpenAI's GPT models, aims to offer personalised learning experiences to students.
Professor David Malan, the CS50 instructor, envisions a future where AI can provide individualised support to students, approaching a 1:1 teacher-to-student ratio.
By incorporating AI chatbots, the challenge of providing personalised assistance to a large number of students, both online and on-campus, can be addressed.
Professor Malan recognises the importance of cultivating critical thinking skills in students when engaging with AI-generated content.
While AI chatbots can offer valuable assistance, it is essential for students to develop the ability to evaluate and verify information.
Professor Malan emphasises the significance of active involvement from both students and teachers in refining AI's capabilities.
