8 Ways Machine Learning Will Improve Education

It was the constant stories about self-driving cars that made machine learning the breakthrough tech topic of 2015. Five years ago news stories talked about robots that could do repetitive tasks but they said real complex tasks requiring seasoned judgement–like driving a car– were years away. Then cars started driving themselves. It turns out that computers are getting smart faster than most predicted. Machine learning , a subset of artificial intelligence, is an effort to program computers to identify patterns in data to inform algorithms that can make data-driven predictions or decisions. As we interact with computers, we’re continuously teaching them what we are like. The more data, the smarter the algorithms become. Pedro Domingos, author of the The Master Algorithm , said machine learning is the new switchboard for…
