Machine learning, combined with other emerging technologies such as AI, adaptive software, big data and learning analytics, and self-guided learning, has enormous potential to revolutionize how we use data to analyze mass amounts of information to make predictions that guide decision making, research, and find ways to apply our discoveries across industries. Admittedly, I have not read much about its implications or uses in education, but I have read about machine learning in regards to its application in food systems through its use along with imaging technologies (identifying pests/disease in the greenhouse, detecting visual differences in fruits to identify issues from farm to retail, etc.), its use to identify disease at early stages in the human body, and discussed it with a global economic strategist about his application of it to analyze market trends and make predictions. I look forward to learning more, making connections with its potential in education, and seeing its impact in the years to come.
