According to Business Insider, futurist Thomas Frey predicts that 14 years from now, students will learn from AI over the internet, using a series of algorithms to tailor the lessons according to a student's strengths and weaknesses. Reportedly, students could potentially complete an undergraduate degree in under six months.
Frey suspects that kind of efficiency will allow students to learn at much faster rates than if they had to compete with 19 other students for the teacher's attention. Students will breeze through their material at four or 10 times the speed, perhaps completing an undergraduate education in less than half a year.
"It learns what your proclivities are, it learns what your idiosyncrasies are," he explains. "It learns what your interests are, your reference points. And it figures out how to teach you in a faster and faster way over time."
