How Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics is shaping the future of Education.
Almost every sector and business functions are trying to leverage the implementation of AI. However, implementation of IT for education sector is relatively low. Challenges for schoolteachers have always been regarding the personal education of the child (Brady et.al. 2012). And also it is being difficult for the teachers to develop interest of the students in learning. To gather the interest of learning it has become important for the educational sectors to move towards AI and robotics.
AI can play one of the effective role in enhancing personalisation and efficiency. AI offers extensive range of learning tools that rapidly design the learning and bring effective designing in the curriculum. AI enables teachers to attract students towards learning and enhance the quality and personalised experience of the students (Russell and Norvig, 2016). The future of education is the support of AI analytics that will analyse the strengths and weakness of the students and assess their progress of learning (Anthes, 2017). Current proposal covers the background to the research and deliverables are based on achieving aims and objectives at the end of the research. Proposal shows the clear plan with the support of Gantt chart that would be followed to complete the research on time and as per the available resources.
Justification of Resources
This is one of the PhD proposal that would be completed itself by the researcher. It will follow suitable steps of researching, collecting and analysing the data. The qualitative information would be carried out with the help of interview from teachers and for that effective questionnaire would be designed. In the current research, no additional cost of personnel is required to complete the research (Mutch, 2013). The researcher will need access towards carrying out the In-depth literature review. Having effective knowledge of the research topic is one of the essential deliverables of the research. For conducting the research, there are requirements of hardware and software equipments (Kumar, 2019). General resources such as laptop are required to store the data and Network connection will be acquired to collect the qualitative aspects of information. Researcher will try to follow certain ethics of optimum utilisation of resources and no other resources such as paper would be wasted.
