Apart from the commonly understood applications of pattern recognition and other analytics to adaptive learning systems that can drive self-paced learning systems, I think AI and machine learning will impact LEARNING before it impacts EDUCATION. This is because these technologies will provide us with new ways of discovering and creating knowledge and understanding, by working to SUPPLEMENT and EXTEND human cognition, as opposed to replicating it. This phenomenon will provide much faster evolution of knowledge in any given domain of inquiry, but also lead to such radically new ways of discovering, accessing, interrelating, and developing knowledge that what results are actually new ways of learning.
