Artificial Intelligence in Education to Meet Student Needs

Professor Michele Della Ventura
Music Academy 'Studio Musica'

Abstract: The concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be hard to understand, especially when we are trying to think about how it can be applied in the educational field or in many other sectors of the society. AI is a part of our everyday lives. With AI students and teachers are able to communicate with one another; students are able to help other students and meet the students’ interests and needs. AI is also able to help students with special needs by adapting materials to lead them to success. This research is based on the use of some AI software that it is possible to use for managing the student's motivation in order to promote effective, active, efficient and satisfactory learning. In particular, an attempt was made to consider the strengths of dyslexic students in order to mitigate their weaknesses.
