1.6 How Does AI Work?
The question “How does AI work?” is a relatively simplistic one. Basically, you can’t answer it like that, because AI as a scientific field encompasses various subfields and methods that function differently. One subfield is machine learning. Machine learning is responsible for many advances in AI research. Actually, today we should speak much more often of machine learning instead of AI. In practice, however, the terms are often equated or used synonymously.
Domain-specific knowledge is highly relevant for the development of AI systems. 💡 In order for AI-based educational applications to be developed based on learning theory considerations, educators would need to contribute their domain expertise. We will discuss this in more detail in Module 3!
