Artificial Intelligence to boost education

In a bid to provide wider access to adaptive learning technologies, the Centre plans to launch a new scheme in partnership with companies using artificial intelligence to make learning a more personalised and customised experience as per the learner’s requirements. Start-ups which join the government platform must offer 25% free coupons for students from disadvantaged communities, said a statement from the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) on Thursday. The National Educational Alliance for Technology (NEAT), which will be administered by an apex committee constituted by the Ministry, is expected to begin operations by early November. The public-private partnership scheme aims to harness technology for better learning outcomes in higher education. The Ministry aims to bring start-up companies working on this technology under a common platform for easier access to students. “MHRD would act as a facilitator to ensure that the solutions are freely available to a large number of economically backward students. MHRD would create and maintain a National NEAT platform that would provide one-stop access to these technological solutions,” said the statement, adding that the All India Council for Technical Education will be the implementing agency for the scheme.
