Analyzing the implications and different mechanisms of AI:
Ramifications and impacts in educational development
Through the years humans are slowly inching towards those futuristic societies we read so much in science fiction novels; with the new advancements made in fields such as computer science and the development of artificial intelligence. A.I is something we use in our everyday lives. When you use Siri, Cortana, Amazon's Alexa or any other virtual assistance technology, you are using a form of artificial Intelligence. The accuracy of these programs has proven to be very successful and helpful during our everyday lives. AI revolutionized the educational system with algorithms such as AI-Enabled personalization which helps students and education develop a learning system for individual students.
AI is also helping students and educators through virtual assistance technologies that help students find educational material without the need of much interaction enabling under-resourced, isolated or groups found in adverse circumstances obtain access to appropriate schooling. Popular websites such as Khan academy provide students with supplementary practice exercises and materials to assess their weaknesses and strengths. AI has proven its here to stay, but it has yet to arrive in full form in developing countries. If artificial intelligence is to remain a permanent tool for education, it must be one that is accessible to everyone around the world.
Most importantly, before it's full introduction, the long term effects, whether they be positive or negative, must be addressed. Leaders from around the world must come together to define a global-standards setting on the ethics of AI, possibilities and risk involved for equal education and sustainable development.
About the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural organization, better known for its acronym in english UNESCO, was founded in between the 1st and 16th of November of 1945 thanks to its predecessor (The Conference for Allied Ministers of Educations or “CAME”). As a direct response to a world that not only faced one of the most violent events in human-kind but also was filled by the aftermath of racist or anti-semtic violence that resulted from the harboring of hate speech and intolerance, UNESCO was created. The United Nations Education, Scientific, and Educational Organization is considered to be a specialized agency of the United Nations, which entails that it has legal, economic and political autonomy from the UN with a separate budget and structure.
