UAE’s Minister of Education, Ahmed Belhoul Al Falasi has announced the idea of working to develop and launching of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tutors in the country in collaboration with global tech giants to improve learning and education.
He disclosed while participating in the World Government Summit which started on February 13 and concluded on Wednesday (February 15) in Dubai.
He said the Ministry of Education (MoE) will be partnering with Microsoft, OpenAI, and other tech firms, to use AI for improving the quality of education and learning.
Al Falasi said that the ministry will conduct a full review of the system from curriculum to delivery and assessment, to lay out a map for placing AI tools across the board along with its partners. The new technology will improve students’ learning experiences, offer instant feedback, and make education interactive.
The new technology aims to make learning more interactive for students and improve subject understanding and provide them with the resources they need in a rapidly evolving world.
He delivered a ChatGPT-generated speech at the summit despite his communications team’s insistence not to do so. He asked not to demonize AI as it will be a part of human lives and he used this to prove that it can deliver a pretty good speech.
AI in education can personalise learning. AI-powered tools can analyse a student’s learning style, strengths, and weaknesses and customize their learning experience accordingly.
