Artificial Intelligence is rapidly permeating education, with intelligent tutorial systems and chatbots influencing the way we learn and process knowledge. While navigating the new technologies, we have to comprehend the implications AI will have on the future of work and the educational system. This table will address the possible impact of data-driven and algorithm-based knowledge, evaluation, and application and discuss how we can equip the next generation to manage the opportunities and threats of AI use.
