How Is Machine Learning Changing Education?

By Megan R. Nichols

Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer science fiction, and it may be more abundant than you realize. AI already powers things from Netflix recommendations to smart speakers to autopilot in airplanes, and it’s only going to grow from here.

More companies are beginning to take advantage of this technology, as AI adoption rose 270% in just four years. Soon we’ll see this technology used across all industries.

One promising area for machine learning is in human education. Teaching is a vital yet complex profession. Discerning each student’s educational needs can be a complex challenge, and schools may not always have the ability to meet it. AI can help.

Machine learning has a knack for solving complicated problems that have proved too difficult for humans. This problem-solving ability can find ways to improve education for students of all ages and skill levels.

Personalized Learning

One of the most substantial challenges facing educators is that different students require different teaching strategies. Some may grasp certain subjects at a different rate than others or respond better to another learning style. Teachers may not be able to determine the specific needs of each student — much less have the time to address them all.

Innovations Expected To Make Driving A Worthy Experience

BY JACKIE EDWARDS

The demand for automotive engineers was set to rise by 18700 in 2018, according to a survey by the Recruiter. This is not a shocking statistic considering that the automotive industry is one of the greatest markets in the world. The constant application of science to daily life in the form of innovations like machine learning is once again showing up in the manufacturing of cars. Cars are getting sleeker, more intelligent, and highly accommodating with each update. New innovations continue to improve the driving experience now and for the future.

Autonomous Vehicles

Also called self-driving cars, autonomous vehicles are finally here after decades of research and test drives. A self-driving car means you can have a hands-off experience on the highway. With the latest car diagnostic tools, it is only fair you have the best car to test them on. The level 3 automated driving Audi A8 is just the first of many. The science behind this amazing feature is a combination of sonar, GPS, radar, laser scanners, odometry, Lidar, and inertial measuring units. A combination of these features ensures that the car senses its environment, including the road structure, other road users, and approaching cars to adjust its speed. It may be a while before these cars are allowed on roads without a driver though.

Biometric Vehicle Access

Gone are the days when a key could help you access your car, and so are the days when you could break into a car using a hanger. The existing radio frequency key fob technology is awesome, but biometric vehicle access is even cooler. During its launch in the 2018 North American Auto Show, the Nissan XMotion showcased its fingerprint scanner that opens the door. Your car basically starts when you touch it. Biometric technology is already used in connected cars, and will be seen in more mainstream and futuristic cars in the coming years.

There was a time when television was the best tool to make viewers feel the physical experience of something from their bed. And today augmented reality (AR) has set the stage for marketers to enhance the interaction with their target customers in a really different and effective manner. It engages the users to deliver a more compelling experience that can boost your product offering.

Every business is working on some form of augmented reality today for their product or brand enhancement. It is expected that by the year 2024, AR products global market will take a jump by 80% and will reach $165 billion. Augmented reality engages the customers and enhances the customer experience.

With the help of this blog, we will present a few examples of businesses who are successfully engaging their customers via augmented reality throughout their customer journey.

Banking becoming More Interactive

No matter how exceptional or efficient is the system of any bank, the most important thing that a user expects is the end result – an outstanding experience.

The banking industry has embraced digital technology with an aim to boost customer service. Internet banking, mobile banking, and pay banking are a few technologies that banks are providing to their customers. But how exceptional it will be if banks start to provide the detailed information about the account balance, payment due dates, credit/debit card balance, and so on just by scanning the card of the customer.

Yes, all the above-mentioned features are possible today with the help of this extremely useful technology in the banking sector – Augmented Reality. Banking sectors, today, are constantly shifting towards using AR technology to enhance the experience for customers
