Artificial Intelligence (AI), Education, Opportunities, Challenges, Implications


The role of artificial intelligence in the field of education has garnered significant attention in recent decades. Artificial intelligence has undergone significant advancements and has been applied in diverse areas of education, including adaptive learning, school management, and educational accessibility. The objective of this study is to examine the progression and utilization of artificial intelligence in the field of education, along with the difficulties encountered in its adoption and implementation. The study effectively employed a qualitative research approach, utilizing a literature review as a research design and approach, to successfully achieve the study's objectives. This study assesses the beneficial influence of artificial intelligence on enhancing learning efficacy and delivering personalized learning experiences. The obstacles were also recognized in the implementation of artificial intelligence in the field of education. The findings of this study emphasize the significance of promoting the integration of AI in education through the establishment of supportive policies, sufficient preparation, and a deeper comprehension of AI usage among educators. AI enhances students' learning experiences by offering them practical and experienced learning opportunities, especially when combined with other technologies like virtual reality, 3-D, gaming, and simulation. Finally, a curriculum that is adaptive and similar to industrial developments should be outlined.
