The Potential Role of Artificial Intelligence Technology in Education.
Salem, Abdel-Badeeh M.
The field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Education has traditionally a technology-based focus, looking at the ways in which AI can be used in building intelligent educational software. In addition AI can also provide an excellent methodology for learning and reasoning from the human experiences. This paper presents the potential role of AI in the various aspects of education. Six AI fields are presented. The first presents the knowledge representation (KR) which includes ontologies; new concepts for representing, storing and accessing knowledge; and schemes for representing knowledge. The second is related to the use of Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) methodology in developing interactive intelligent educational systems for learning and teaching. The third topic is related to the use of Natural Language Processing (NLP) for analyzing the educational Web pages. The fourth is concerned with the Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs), which are capable of adaptive instruction by means of multiple representations of domain knowledge. The fifth is the Intelligent Tutoring System Authoring Sheels (ITSASs), which allow a course instructor to easily enter domain and other knowledge without requiring computer programming skills. The last area deals with the learning in Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI). Moreover, the paper will explore a proposal for a master's degree in artificial intelligence in education. (Author)
