Abstract

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. Specific applications of Artificial Intelligence include expert systems, natural language processing, speech recognition and machine vision. AI systems offer support for online learning and teaching to be effective. AI helps in personalizing learning for students, automating instructors’ routine tasks, powering adaptive assessments. With the increase in studies about AI in the educational field, many scholars believe that the role of teachers, educational institutions and leaders in education will change as AI has a great impact in education. In this regard, the purpose of this study is to examine the impact of AI in education and what kind of implementations it can reveal for future purposes. The research was designed as an analytical study , a qualitative research method, in which data is collected from secondary sources like newspapers, journals, articles and books. The results show that educational institutions and teachers will have new products, benefits and will also face drawbacks with the arrival of AI in education. The findings point out some suggestions for the use of AI and prevention of possible problems. Generally, it seems to have positive perceptions towards AI, however  there are also certain drawbacks especially highlighted by teachers and academicians regarding the future of teaching.
