prof. Dr. Emin Erkan Korkmaz, in education sohbet Stating that learning with robots and augmented reality is not a dream, "Now, the use of systems in education that are customized for each student, that can follow that student's tendencies, successful and unsuccessful issues and optimize the process in order to ensure that the student learns in the most efficient way, stands before us as an important possibility for the future." said.
Yeditepe University Computer Engineering Department faculty member Prof. Dr. Emin Erkan Korkmaz evaluated the reflection of artificial intelligence on education. Reminding that rapid progress has been made in artificial intelligence research in recent years, Prof. Dr. Korkmaz reminded that very successful applications have been developed in different fields such as medicine, pharmacy and finance, as well as engineering, by using artificial intelligence methods and technologies. Stating that these technologies and applications have become an important part of our daily life, Prof. Dr. Korkmaz emphasized that the importance of artificial intelligence technologies in the field of education will increase even more.
“Can Be Used In Two Ways”
Expressing that artificial intelligence technologies can be used in two different ways in the field of education, Korkmaz said, “First of all, it is possible to use artificial intelligence as an auxiliary element to increase the quality of education. Even now, there are software that perform functions such as detecting cases such as cheating and plagiarism, grading exams, and there are even systems that provide feedback and suggestions to students in their learning processes.
Natural Language Processing Capacities Increased
prof. Dr. Emin Erkan Korkmaz stated that one of the most important problems in the field of artificial intelligence is natural language processing and continued his words as follows:
“In line with the developments in recent years, the capacity of computers to understand and use natural language has increased considerably. Therefore, it will be able to carry out the training directly. sohbet The emergence of robots/software is no longer a dream. With the development of this technology, the use of systems in education that are customized for each student, that can follow that student's tendencies, successful and unsuccessful issues, and optimize the process in order to ensure that the student learns in the most efficient way, stands before us as an important possibility for the future. If these systems become widespread, human educators will still be needed. But perhaps the role of these educators will now take place within the framework of consultancy and coordinatorship.”
Augmented Reality in Foreign Language Learning
Stating that not only artificial intelligence technologies, but also technologies such as virtual reality or augmented reality will contribute to the education process, Korkmaz said, “For example, a student learning a foreign language can have different conversations with different people in a virtual environment, order food in a virtual restaurant or it will be possible to take place in a virtual shopping scene”.
Machine That Can Use Machines
prof. Dr. Emin Erkan Korkmaz, reminding that whether artificial intelligence will cause unemployment or not is among the topics that are very curious, stated that it is very difficult to reach a definite judgment on this issue.
Pointing out that humanity has produced many different machines, devices and technologies to this day, Korkmaz also emphasized that processes such as mechanization and factoryization have always created fear of losing their jobs in history. "However, in the historical process, new business areas, new sectors have emerged with mechanization and it has been possible to employ people in different fields," said Prof. Dr. Korkmaz continued his words as follows:
“Similarly, it is a common view that artificial intelligence technologies will create different jobs. However, there is a point to be noted here. For every machine produced in the past, there was a need for at least people who would use or repair that machine. For example, when the telephone was produced, a profession such as telephone operator emerged or there was a need for drivers to drive the cars produced. It is also possible to define artificial intelligence as 'machine that can use machines'. This is the first case in history. For this reason, it will be a situation that we have not encountered before and that has the potential to create mass unemployment, for artificial intelligence systems to be able to perform tasks such as driver, operator, security guard and similar jobs using other machines in full automation. There is a need for further reflection and discussion on this issue.”
