From authors of science fiction to movie makers and futurists -- everyone has been making amazing, albeit catastrophic at times, predictions about the widespread of artificial intelligence. AI so far, has quietly pervaded various aspects of our everyday lives without causing any disaster. Whether it is the smart sensors that help click perfect pictures or automatic features in our cars and sometimes the annoying assistants on our smartphones, we are consumed by artificial intelligence of one kind or another.

AI has proved to be a game changer across an increasing number of fields; it has now entered the domain of education to transform the learning processes of mankind. AI constitutes devices designed to be predisposed to a very high level of Intelligence. Machine Learning is the pushing force that drives the development of Artificial Intelligence. The two concepts go hand-in-hand and together can change the world we live in forever.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have a plethora of offerings to the world. Consequently, almost all the sectors have started to garner these benefits of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. However, in the field of Education, Artificial Intelligence has been slowly but surely gaining momentum. Here are a few examples of how AI and its derivatives are now finding their way into the classroom, and beyond.

Cyborg-technology is a means of augmenting oneself to enhance inane natural abilities possessed by humans. Exploring and integrating this aspect of AI & ML can go a long way in improving efficiency in the field of learning. It is sure to enhance agility and accuracy thereby increasing the chances of Einstein's and Newton's popping up straight out of school.

Virtual mentors for students are another extraordinary feature of AI that we could witness in the future. Virtual mentoring can create a breakthrough in the field of student psychology by eliminating possibilities of bias, and by better assessing and solving learning disabilities, personal complexes and so on. The future of AI induced Education is also characterized by features of Automated Grading. Full-scale automated grading from the grass root level will help unburden teachers of this tedious task of grading and focus more on teaching, student relations and personal growth.
