Everyone looks for skills in the digital  era, but proven skills. This is said by Elon Musk too.
https://digitalmarketing.ac.in/images/elonmuskskills
Image source : cnn.com
Founder and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, and the most innovative Leader of 2019 as per Forbes, Elon Musk tweeted that he doesn’t one need not have a college degree to work in his company, Tesla.

This is not the first time Elon Musk has made this clear.  After all, even Steve Jobs and Bill Gates didn't clear college to become who they did.

He has stated that it wasn't always necessary that a person who graduated from a great college would be capable of great things.

He wants "evidence of exceptional ability" in his potential employees rather than any prestigious college degree.

He further explained that if a candidate has done some really exceptional work before, it is highly likely that the person will do so again.

He generally asks interview candidates about the kinds of problems they have encountered in previous jobs and how they went about solving them. For, he considers  problem-solving skills very important for success.
He is also known to detailed questions about these achievements so that the potential employee cannot bluff or take credit for work that someone else had done.
We also need to understand how in the area of education, this is again about evaluating how useful this is as per what the industry needs today. Let us learn this from global leaders like Elon Musk.

Education and employment

Unemployment and demography are being discussed for the last several decades all the time. This problem here is not of the jobs but of wages and opportunities. It is claimed that with the business value development approach, systematic development of SME’s and its nurturing, eventually job creation will be achieved. This cannot happen without processes in place. We show these to you.

We must know there is a need to reinvent the business processes especially in SME, which are the backbone of our economy, among other sectors.


India has 63 million enterprises according to this data, of which 12 million do not have formal offices. The business value development approach and focus on productivity are therefore key factors. We do need a strategy.

Here, we definitely need to learn from leaders like Elon Musk who have shown us the path to success in the modern, digital world.

Digital skills are the key for all today to succeed in the digital world!
The digital world is growing at a remarkably fast It was just about 0% in 2005, then became 40% in 2020. Digital marketing pacing at a healthy 33.5% compound from now till 2022
• More than 2 million jobs are expected by 2020
• Average salary of a mid-level digital marketer 8-30 lakhs per annum
We shall surely make our students experts in the field of digital marketing with our skill based practical approach. Our digital marketing course makes our students digitally empowered in digital marketing by working on live projects. We give a WRITTEN ASSURANCE of job guarantee, a rare assurance indeed.

Our population can be a valuable human resource if we move in the right direction and embrace the skills required in the digital age. We can then become a powerful nation with the right digital skills.

https://www.digitalmarketing.ac.in/images/skillingandreskilling
Image Source : economictimes.com
Considering the by 2027, a majority of this young population is growing up in a digital environment, India has a strong competitive edge in terms of offering relevant skills to the IT-BPM industry. A majority of IT-BPM companies are also grooming their talent for a digital future with skills that will enable them to stay relevant in the face of continuous disruptions.
are getting more sophisticated and complex and this requires technical skills to operate and maintain. The industry has high dependence on external partners often based overseas, for equipment maintenance, troubleshooting and this causes delays, significant loss of productivity. It towards pharmaceutical is high time training that industry.
All of this is underpinned by innovation. Hence, India is going to be the hub for new-age skills in areas such as data science, Artificial Intelligence and others.

Robotic Process Automation and Internet of Things.
The vast majority of this young population are from the less developed parts of India where the infrastructure is poor. They are growing up in areas where the education they are being offered is not on par with what is available in the more developed parts of the country. While the government is taking steps to improve this situation, there is still the fear that the reforms being implemented may not fully take off. However, there is a chance that in case the reforms fail, this segment might still be able to pull itself up as a result of digital penetration. But the onus is both on government and industry bodies to collaborate and build the required infrastructure to groom this talent pool.

For our industry and to maximize the opportunity in India, we need to be able to reach consumers across the length and breadth of the country at the right place, right time, right price. Therefore, a plethora of skills become relevant, be it across Sciences, for better R&D, Product Development, Manufacturing, Packaging, or in selling/ marketing and distribution. With the fast adoption and build out of technology in our country, e-commerce would be set to grow, not as another channel but another eco-system where business would prosper. Therefore, the gamut of skills required in the traditional brick and mortar world would need to also have its equivalents in e-commerce.
For the immediate term, ensuring the call-out from the industry is for sustainable job categories and families, ensuring proper regulations protect the interests of the employees are put in place balancing it with pragmatic and contemporary labour to do employees
India is poised at the best demographic standing in the world with one of the youngest populations of 600 million people under the age of 25 years. However, is reaping the benefits of this big opportunity proving to be an even bigger task? Amidst the rising technological advancements across industries and employers complaining of talent crunch, the situation does not seem encouraging, suggesting that as a nation we are possibly missing on the chance to utilize this ‘demographic dividend’ and become a future-ready global human resource powerhouse.
In this view, The India Skills Report 2020 captures both sides of the talent supply chain. The report on one side outlines the state of students in terms of their job readiness.On the other side, the report analyzes the requirements of employers via a survey taken by senior leaders across industries along with four focused group discussions across India’s metros.

Disruptive and dynamic
The technology industry is extremely dynamic with disruption and innovation becoming the norm. In order to stay competitive, responsive and relevant, organizations need to focus on recruiting not just talented employees who possess skills and expertise required for the job, but to gauge their ability to adapt and acquire new skills when needed. India’s technical talent has been our biggest contribution to global innovation and in today’s age of new technologies and automation, skill development becomes imperative. Digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are transforming the nature of work and the skills needed to thrive in today’s evolving corporate landscape. Human beings and machines will work together to move towards productivity. As “old jobs” disappear and “new jobs” are created, the new jobs will require skills that facilitate collaboration with new age technologies. Therefore, focusing on skill development programmes which are based on advanced technologies like data science, artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud computing, Internet of Things is the only way forward. At Uber, we constantly invest in our talent through various improve upgrade learning skill technical sets.and ”capabilities development and initiatives continually to move towards innovation.

We all need to work together to meet the challenges of the digital age. This surely is indeed happening everywhere.


Some steps we all can take are given below

Companies and Industries

Skilling and re-skilling initiatives – Companies can collaborate with each other to establish an efficient skilling ecosystem in their sectors. The online learning platforms, collaborating with training centers and colleges in the area or at the city level can be a way that can be leveraged to develop the required skill among the candidates. For instance, ‘futureskills’ is an initiative by NASSCOM where it is collaborating with the IT/ITeS companies to skill about 2 million candidates in the next 5 years, on 150+ skills, across 70+ jobs, in 10 emerging technologies. Furthermore, reskilling employees across levels should be a constant activity and part of the company strategy.

Increasing women participation – The industry, in coordination with the government, needs to put the right infrastructure in place for women employees to encourage their participation in the workforce. Women employees should be treated just as men on pay-scale, promotions and work distribution. Parallelly, to retain working mothers, the industry should support them by reskilling the women who return from maternity breaks, provide child-care services, flexible work timings and supporting gig work among other initiatives.

Increased involvement with education institutions – Participating in curriculum formation for schools and colleges would align the industry’s requirements with education and skilling, across the nation. Further, frequent college visits can be used to make students more aware of the trends and requirements of the industry. The same can also help counsel students on their career choices. Increasing internship opportunities with the companies and effectively monitoring the progress of students can further help in building the skills and  attitude of the students. Supporting ‘train the trainer’ programs can help minimize the gaps that might exist in the knowledge of faculty and trainers. For example, in association with the Ministry of Skilll Development, IBM is aiming to train 10,000 faculty members from ITIs across India in AI-related education over the next year. Similar efforts can be replicated across industries and institutes to widen the reach of such initiatives.

Academia 

Inculcate right behavior and attitude - The academia needs to inculcate the right behavior and attitude among students about jobs and their career. The prevailing problems, for instance, students being unclear about career choices and predisposed attitude towards blue-collared jobs, switching jobs and floor work in the auto company need to be addressed 

with utmost care. The concept of lifetime learning and preparedness for taking on challenges should be inculcated in the students. Further, academia needs to counsel/guide students to make appropriate career choices and, above all, to follow their passion and not chase pay-checks or give-in to peer pressure. Making learning learner-driven – The academia needs to actively seek methods to customize the curriculum and courses as per the students’ aspirations and industry requirements. Practical knowledge-based education, interactive learning modules and enhanced usage of online materials and digital aids should be emphasized upon. Further, foundational skills such as cognitive skills, problem-solving, numeracy, business communication and more, should also be equally prioritized as any other technical skills. To support such learning, institutes must consider competencies of its trainers/teachers and maintain infrastructural facilities, which form the building blocks of any institution.

Strong Career Counciling Cells in partnership with Industry – Students need constant direction and guidance in helping them identify what career stream best matches their abilities, skills and passion. Academic institutions and industry stakeholders need to partner professionally and formally to provide direction and career counselling to students and help them in their decision making process and career pathing. Each industry segment can partner with institutions with complementing curricula.

Formal 2 year internships should be made mandatory where students get incubated in the professional setting of their choice in a rigorous and tough program that is measured to make them all rounders in that chosen discipline.

Besides focused treading towards the above recommendations, India – a nation that is brimming with young and dynamic talent – can also unlock the potential in alternative opportunities such as fast- tracking women’s retention and career growth, and exploring more gig-based and global-level projects. This, we are sure, will empower India not just to reach parity with the global community of professionals in terms of attitude, skills and knowledge, but also to realise its ambition of becoming a $5 trillion economy in the coming years.

Working in collaboration
We have seen that many academic people are disconnected with what the industry needs. This happens more in the digital world. This is why we keep ourselves updated with the industry trends and keep ourselves updated accordingly. This is what makes us one of the few institutions offering a hundred percent job guarantee to our students, for they are ready for what the industry needs today in the digital world. Collaboration is after all, what everyone needs today.

Why choose us?
Our instructors are experienced in teaching. They are also well connected with industries. This is what makes them valuable in teaching and telling students how to use their skills and remain an asset to whichever organisation they choose to work with later. This we know is paramount for moving towards success. If this is not the case, our students will not be productive at all. Success comes only to those who know what the world is looking for. As the world needs digital skills, we train all our students in these areas. There is absolutely no compromise here which is why our students are sought after by all.

Becoming digital
As we can see, we all must become digital as the entire world is now digital. The world itself now recognizes only people with digital skills. Do join in a proper course at our Digital marketing institute before you get left behind.

Increasing globalization, demographic changes, emerging technologies, regulatory framework and geopolitical scenario will significantly influence India’s job landscape in the coming years. With initiatives such as Skill India or efforts in the direction of investing in infrastructural changes, ramping up of micro- entrepreneurship models and boosting the start-up ecosystem, the Government of India is clearly laying out signs that it is up for re-inventing the business case for India.

In addition, the rapidly changing technology environment is reshaping entire organizational structures and operations. It has led to the rise of new business models disrupting the incumbents, altered customer behaviour, reformed service delivery methods and operations, and most importantly, it has changed the way people work. Some striking examples that instantly come to the mind are Swiggy, OYO, BigBasket, Ola and Lenskart, the brands which have revolutionized the entire business ecosystem.

Automated tools
We are increasingly being automated using technologies like Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The key emerging digital technologies are creating new arrangements for labour market called the ‘gig- economy’. The gigs-based work model is moving the work beyond the corporate boundaries in terms of short, flexible, part-time work. These changes are certainly posing an increased threat of workforce replacement.

It is, therefore, necessary that India Inc. identifies and understands the changing job landscape and the emerging, new roles due to these disruptions. Further, it needs to look at the skills that its workforce currently possesses and the skills that it will need in the future so that leaders can devise solutions to develop these new skills. Most importantly, the knowledge temples of the country – schools, colleges, training institutes, vocational study centres, among others – need to be reformed to build a solid foundation of knowledge, skills and attitude.

It is observed that despite a huge population of energetic youth in the country today, the industry is complaining of scarce talent. To understand this problem better and answer what can be done, we conducted an online survey, the India Hiring Intent 2020, with more than 150 employers, across 9 industries  to understand their challenges in hiring the candidates they want. The leaders also shared their views on the kind of roles/skills the organizations would seek in their prospective employees, where do they plan to hire and what channels would they prefer to reach out to candidates.

Growing industries

 The industries which are expected to ramp up hiring the most are E-commerce and BFSI. Leaders in the E-commerce sector expects hiring to swing up by around 55-60%, while an uptrend of 30-35% is expected by leaders in the BFSI sector. A strong example of the hiring upswing mentioned for E-commerce above is the recent announcement made by Swiggy who is aiming to become one of the biggest employers in the country by adding 3 lakh employees to its workforce. Further, India’s sunshine sector, IT along with ITeS, BPO and KPO would be a promising growth engine for job creation in 2020 as well.

Positive Attitude And Soft Skills are essential

When asked about the skills that employers seek while hiring, all employers explicitly mentioned the requisite of a ‘positive attitude’ in the candidate, with the sense that a candidate with a positive outlook towards job and learning is more likely to do better in her/his professional career than her/his counterparts. The unanimous voice of HR experts as per discussions during the Decoding Jobs 2019 – The Think Tank Roundtable Series also placed a lot of importance on the attitude of candidates (further qualitative findings of the discussions held during the Decoding Jobs 2019 – The Think Tank Roundtable Series are mentioned in subsequent sections of this report).

Digital Skills

The digital world is changing and evolving.

In the digital world, this is an important element so we have included this in our digital marketing course. The world is now digital and we need to gear up for it. We need to learn the nuances so that we are not left behind in this fast evolving world.

AI and machine learning is surely going to make its presence felt everywhere. We are certain this is only going to increase.

For, in the digital world, marketing must be done digitally to be noticed by everyone. So this is worth learning to succeed as otherwise, we may be left behind. Don’t delay your path to success.

All of us must know this is no longer an option so we must take the necessary steps. The more one delays, the more the difficulty would be later. The fortunate part of this is one can begin anytime to begin learning, For, in the digital world, learning is truly democratic and global in nature. So, one indeed has the power to begin anytime.

We need to recognise this and world on adapting ourselves to be digitally able and skilled.

This shall surely ensure we are always productive in any area we choose.

We offer all these skills, so we are able to offer 100% job guarantee to our students.

The world is changing in the digital world. We need to re-skill ourselves if we wish to move on.

The digital world

Different reasons are applicable for different sections of society.

Industry needs to focus on
• Reskilling the workforce to meet the requirement of
changing jobs

• Collaborating with colleges and training centres to skill people

• Creating equal employment opportunities for men and women, and supporting women workforce (example programs such as ‘returning mom’).

All this is quite easy to do digitally.

The academia needs to focus on

• Updating curriculum as per the industry’s requirements in collaboration with industry experts and the government

• Improving the education system, by enhancing the infrastructural facilities such as laboratories, research centers, faculties and imparting hands-on knowledge

• Keeping the students updated on industry trends through frequent industrial visits, internships and guest lectures

• Inculcating in students the attitude of continuous learning and unlearning, adapt to the changing work environment and pursue the course and /or career they are truly passionate about. 

Vision of 2025

The Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi envisions India as a US$ 5 trillion economy and a global economic powerhouse by 2025. Home to the world’s largest young population with over 600 million people under the age of 25 years, India is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. Studies across many other Asian economies have shown that such a ‘demographic dividend’ has resulted in rapid economic progress. Riding on the shoulders of its working youth, which outgrew its dependent population in 2018 , India stands as the world’s sixth-biggest economy with a GDP of US$ 2.7 trillion in 2019. Additionally, as per the global expert-driven content portal, Big Think, the country is eyeballing the opportunity to make it in the global top 5 list by 2020.

It is worth mentioning that the country’s big and small economic patterns and trends are all highly impacted by India’s largest demographic cohort – the millennials – people who belong in the age bracket of 18-35 years. The whole world is looking upon the Indian millennial consumers as a strong-minded community that has both witnessed and contributed to the multifaceted evolution of the global consumer markets. The rise of e-commerce that came in the wake of growing penetration of the internet, across sub-urban, semi- urban and later, even rural parts of the country evolved Indian millennials into a key target market for global brands. But then again, it should be noted that the role of Indian millennials in the country’s economic uproar has not been limited to consumerism.

Currently, millennials contribute nearly one half (47%) of the country’s working population and will likely to continue to remain the largest chunk of the Indian workforce for the next ten years . According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in addition to growing the size of their job market by creating new opportunities, it is crucial for countries like India to ensure that their working-age groups are sufficiently equipped to seize these opportunities. Therefore, it should be realized that millennials (and Generation Z, or the young demographic cohorts in general) are innovators, leaders, decision-makers, and in that, the creators of the ‘future India’. This vast asset - the huge working population - will need mature skills and refined knowledge to tap into its full potential.

Retraining and reskilling

The pitiable figures on India’s formally trained workforce – which stand at merely 2.3% in comparison to economies like South Korea which are at a mammoth share of 96% – indicate that the former will have to rethink, redefine and repaint the entire talent map of the country to stand a fair chance of participating in global jobs market and hence, play a resourceful role in the growing economy . Evolving technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Machine Learning, and Big Data have already found applications across household utilities in the form of smart screen devices, virtual assistants, intelligent sensors and wearable fitness equipment, let alone integrations in industrial practices which have evidently risen exponentially.

Besides creating many more jobs in these domains and transforming existing job functions into new-age roles, India Inc. will also need to upkeep its skilling, re-skilling and up-skilling initiatives in such a massively tech-driven ecosystem and as per the fast-changing future of work across industries. As underlined in our think tank roundtable series – ‘Decoding Jobs 2020’ – in order to achieve this, all major stakeholders including the administration, academia and the industry will need to synergize their resources and efforts towards elementary changes such as revisiting the curriculum, diligent policy-making, establishing compensation structures, setting up standard protocols for both skill education and workplace environment, among others.

Furthermore, to inch closer to its US$ 5 trillion economy ambition, it is vital for India to reimagine its talent landscape by studying the global job market trends and pursue novel approaches to fulfil the skill gaps in the industry and reset the talent demand-supply equilibrium in the country.

Become digitally skilled
At IDM, we  have a systematic approach to strategic management factoring within it some flexibility for changing circumstances. It is extremely important that a university is clear with regards to the position it wishes to secure in the world and hence this should guide its efforts in seeking partners, programs, etc. In doing this, we analyze our own strengths and weaknesses in teaching, research, examine existing relationships and resources at its disposal and work on how to leverage on its strengths. It is often useful to have a look at a national and global ranking standard to help inform the strategic management process.

The world itself now recognizes only people with digital skills. This is why we also give a job guarantee after a candidate acquires these skills. Do join us in a proper course at our Digital marketing institute before you get left behind in the digital world. Choose one of the key courses with us to be guided in the right direction.

The quality of teaching, especially English-language education in government schools across the country, has always been quite bad. The quality of English is particularly horrible. This is being transformed through the use of AI.

Learning is a social process as you learn a lot from others: our brains have been set up to learn this way by looking at peers, repeating gestures, comparing experiences, combining ideas, trying and failing before succeeding, having pleasure and/or feeling the challenges in the process and so on.


The fact is Indians have many kinds of challenges. AI in education will help make everyone access high quality learning accessible, scalable and affordable to even government schools.

Indeed, we know that AI can augment human skills. In the area of medicine, we now know that AI+human based analysis is superior to AI alone or humans alone. This is going to be the same as far as education is concerned.

Other tools
Kavita Reddi, co-founder, Voxta says the company has partnered with a number of vocational institutes to help students speak English better, and is also working with a few low-income schools.]

The key is to sustain these initiatives over a period of time. This is where long-term partnerships will play an important role. Here, increased budgets seem to be spurring more investments in modern classrooms and learning tools, but whether this can impact learning outcomes  is to seen.

We can see that India certainly needs that AI enabled schools all over the spectrum. We can certainly see that the digital world has arrived.  We invite you to learn what is required in the digital world. For this is something we all need to know to succeed in the new world we inhabit.

Addressing challenges

One of the greatest challenges with regards to education is that people learn differently and at different rates. Every student does through the education system with differing levels of learning ability and aptitude. Some are better at “left brain” thinking with skills for analytical thought, while others are more skilled at “right brain” thinking with creative, literary, and communicative ability. There are some who are challenged in different ways with physical and mental disabilities. Further, there are skill sets that differ from one region of the world to another, facing challenges in re-learning new languages and alphabets. Technology makes it possible to connect in all areas by providing wonderful solutions made by the best brains.


On demand content

This on demand digital content is also created with the help of AI and machine learning which is changing the way things are done in education. Textbooks now have their information broken down or condensed into smaller study guides, chapter summaries, flashcards, as well as short smart notes for better reading and understanding. Learning is getting paperless with time and soon there will be less or no use of hard copy textbooks for learning. Such systems will also have an online interactive interface which aids in feedback from the students to their professors. This will enable follow up in areas where they might be struggling or have not yet fully grasped. 


The new future
We can see that all experts are clear that AI is surely going to be part of education. This will surely  enhance the value of education for both the trainers and students. If it down in government schools, it can surely be done everywhere, so we definitely need to embrace AI for sure.

AI  may not replace schools but it could have some significant impact on certain aspects of the education system. Let us have a closer look at AI's future in education we turn to some industry insiders. Here's what they have to say:

1. Sergey Karayev, Head of AI for STEM at Turnitin
“AI will increasingly assist instructors in performing tasks that are mostly mechanical, for example, grading with helpful feedback, or identifying students that are about to struggle on a test. On the student side, AI will be able to provide increasingly complex services, such as suggesting ways to improve their writing, providing hints for solving math problems, and identifying specific gaps in their knowledge."

2. Dan Ayoub, General Manager for Microsoft Education says
“I expect we’ll see three things happen.
First, AI will continue to help students personalize their learning experience and ultimately, see better academic outcomes. Software like Office365 is already using AI to help improve students’ learning experience, but we’re only at the beginning of what’s possible. Today, tools like the editor in Microsoft Word use AI to scan students’ papers and make suggestions for more inclusive language and redundant words. PowerPoint is also now using an AI-powered tool called Presentation Coach that records a student as he or she presenting slides and offers a dashboard with feedback on things like word choice, pacing and filler words. These types of naturally integrated AI tools will offer students more control over their learning experience, which boosts their confidence and overall love of learning.
Secondly, at an institutional level, I think we’ll see more and more universities using AI to track student performance and predict patterns, enabling the university to proactively address student needs, which also improves student retention rates.
And third, I would anticipate we’ll see AI playing the role of a teaching assistant, both in K-12 and in higher education. Again, this speaks to the notion of collective intelligence, whether the educator becomes even more effective with the support of AI. We are already seeing some of the most cutting edge educators like Dr. David Kellerman leveraging AI chatbots to address student questions between lectures, and I expect to see more of this in the years to come. When AI becomes an educator’s digital assistant, they are able to use their time differently, focusing more on the part of the job they love – teaching – and less on administrative tasks.”

3. Paul Mumma, CEO of Cerego, says
“One major aspect coming into focus in the future is the use of AI to gather insights on students and their knowledge. At Cerego, we use AI and machine learning to empower educators with insights on what students are learning and mastering, and what they are not. With more back-end awareness, educators are able to understand where students are struggling and where they thrive. By having clear insights into students’ learning patterns and their areas of struggle, teachers will in turn be better able to tailor their material. He is also clear that one now learn how to better cater to remote students and deliver the same caliber of in-person education.

4. Chris Nicholson, CEO of Skymind says
“AI is usually just a component in larger systems. What you'll see in the future is combinations of AI with other technologies like augmented reality, where students are able to look at the world through goggles or their phones, and AI will recognize what they're looking at, and teach them about it.
Also, a lot of great techniques in education can be improved with AI. Let's say you're learning a language. There are great timed repetition courses out there for that, but they're not very interactive yet. AI will enable those apps to learn more about the student at each step, each time they come back for a lesson, to focus on the things they haven't mastered yet.”

5. David Lee, Chief Operating Officer at Kastling Group
“Personalized education that figures out learning types and curates education based on historic data. Everyone learns differently and at different paces based on subject, so there will be a further push towards personalized education.”

6. Tom Livne, CEO and co-founder of Verbit, avers
AI's ability to make education accessible to sectors of the population that have been previously left behind is driving innovation for all students. Since education organizations are increasingly expected to serve students with disabilities better, technology adoption is happening faster than in other industries, which accelerates innovation in this space. This trend is expected to continue growing, opening the door to personalized learning processes, platforms and paths, that allow each student to maximize her or his learning based on specific preferences and learning goals, thus nurturing a curious, passionate generation that's looking to make a big positive impact on the world.”

7. Vishen Lakhiani, CEO of Mindvalley says, “The future of A.I. is self-directed learning. Students who embrace A.I. are casting aside more traditional, and often outdated curriculums, to pursue and plan their dream lives. They’re encouraged to create a vision for who and what they want to be in the world and what they want their relationships to look like. This is done by opening up people's eyes to the possibilities of the world and writing these down in some sort of platform. The A.I. then works backwards to create custom education to achieve that vision of who you want to be.”

8. Franz Chen, CEO of Ponddy Education avers,
With the integration of IoT and 5G, AI has the potential to replace classrooms with virtual classrooms. We see this already as online schools, tutoring and course offerings become more prevalent, and we move towards the mass customization of education. Education will be redefined as continuous learning versus discrete curricula-based courses. The industry will refocus our lens “in the classroom” from how AI tools are being used to teach to how students are using AI to learn. We need to educate our students not only with AI but about AI. Students need to be trained how to use AI as they become the future workers who will shape the world.”

9. Bill Salak, CTO at Brainly, says
“I've talked a lot about this in the short and medium-term in my previous answers so I'll go long-term and a bit idealistic in my answer here”. He avers that  AI-based solutions will produce a radically new educational system.
I believe that the education system of the future is based on individual pace and progression with highly adaptive content and the testing that we know today will be replaced with interactive proof of knowledge mastery and the ability to apply the mastered knowledge in a meaningful simulation. We will no longer have grades like K – 12, or standardized testing, and the role of the teacher will be much more aligned with that of an expert facilitator or education coach.
I believe AI will produce novel and powerful new forms of learning well beyond what we think of as education today and the concept of school will transform into systems of life-long learning that we will use from early childhood learning through occupational training and beyond.”

10. Jennifer Jones, Ph.D., CEO of Green Ivy Schools, says,
“All learning in basic areas (mathematics, grammar, foreign languages, historical fact, introductory science) will be managed by AI with “teachers” replaced by facilitators and behavior managers with exponentially larger class sizes than we are accustomed to and more likely…..most students at the post-secondary and even high school levels completing AI-supported programs virtually and more in-depth studies on-site. The “flipped” classroom (lectures and AI-supported self-guided lessons via the web.then collaborative work live on campus w peers and mentors) will trickle down from post-secondary to high school soon.”

11. Andreas Oranje, General Manager at Educational Testing Service, says,
“AI should be seen as a more complete partner and supporter of teachers as we move forward. It is and should continue to be seen as a helpful guide in providing teachers deeper insight (data) and through automation of more routine tasks to make more time for teachers to coach and mentor students.”

12. Dee Kanejiya, founder and CEO of Cognii, says,
“AI is still an emerging technology in education and therefore it has a huge potential in future in advancing both the science and business of education. Most of our current educational tests are based on a simple format of multiple-choice questions which is not an accurate measurement of learning.
AI will change it in future such that we will measure learning in the most authentic way that is practically relevant for work. AI will play a crucial role in improving the access and affordability of education to anyone anytime anywhere. It will augment the capability of teachers across the K-12, higher education, and corporate training segments.”

13. Joe Caprio, VP of Sales at Chorus.ai, says,
Many universities are now offering courses and degrees in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Universities are seeing the value of AI in education and hopefully, that will continue to grow. 
With UT Dallas being one of the first schools to implement Chorus.ai into his curriculum, Dr. Dover is becoming a catalyst for utilizing real-life AI-platforms to help students garner real-life experience.”

14. Viola Lam, founder and CEO of Find Solution Ai, avers,
Repetitive jobs or data-driven tasks must be simplified in the future. With the help of AI, institutions can be more cost-effective and better allocate manpower with the corresponding task. However, AI cannot replace all manpower some humanized tasks require a real person to handle. 
AI is an assistance for teachers who are hard to be replaced. Through AI and Big Data, teachers no longer need to invest a lot of time on heavy, repetitive and simple tasks, such as 
assessment grading. Based on AI analysis of learning data, the same goes to our AI-Driven Motivation Learning Model – 4LittleTrees, teachers can spend more time to educate students according to their specific needs, understand the characteristics of students and their problems encountered in learning and provide assistance to them. The quality of students’ personalities can also be significantly improved. Teachers have responsibilities beyond imparting knowledge, such as the establishment of moral education and values, which is exactly what AI and technology cannot do.”

15. Jiajia Zhang, Product Manager at Gooroo, avers,
“AI will assist teachers to create a blended learning environment in class, which integrates online learning with the traditional face-to-face classroom settings. Students can easily start learning a lesson on their own through adaptive learning software, and bring their questions to class. Taking writing as an example, students can practice writing an article on their own and receive feedback immediately through AI. Teachers’ role will become more about designing curricula and guiding students through their self-learning process. The focus for teachers will also be to design and plan activities where students can apply the knowledge and skills to solve real problems.”

16. Mike Dierken, CTO at Varsity Tutors, says,
“The future of AI in education will help make online learning accessible, scalable and affordable to all. Being able to have access to a personal tutor in any subject wherever and whenever a student needs it will help each individual student learn in a way that is best for them.”

17. Alain Goudey, Chief Digital Officer at Neoma Business School, avers,
Education is going to be AI-enhanced, but I do not believe AI will replace professors completely, nor will all students learning become distant. 

Learning is a social process as you learn a lot from others: our brains have been set up to learn this way by looking at peers, repeating gestures, comparing experiences, combining ideas, trying and failing before succeeding, having pleasure and/or feeling the challenges in the process, etc. 
Indeed, we know that AI can augment human skills. In medicine, we now know that AI+human based analysis is superior to AI alone or humans alone. I do believe that it’s going to be the same as far as Education is concerned.”

Our views
We can see that all experts are clear that AI is surely going to be part of education. This will surely  enhance the value of education for both the trainers and students.
