AI will not get this smart in the next 150 years, unless we are all going to have bionic implants from birth and then we would talk about augmented reality but that's something else.

Former Teacher says
Has COVID-19 changed any projections about the future of teaching? There are already software applications more efficient and responsive than classroom teachers, who are restricted in one-on-one instruction by space, time, and opportunity. If COVID-19 stretches into 2020-21, many of the instructional technology tools being used by teachers will need to be automated further to prevent teachers from having to recreate content over and over again. Why not replace the teacher altogether and have learning software that responds to a student's input (both answers and facial expressions, pressure on keys, distracted browsing, etc.) and builds a customized plan for them? If we know a student has characteristics X, Y, and Z, plus deficiencies, a, b, and c, why not have an automated course of study that accounts for those and delivers the best instruction possible? We do need teachers to be the adults in the room, for sure, but if there's no room, that function dissipates.

High school seniors still need the human element of guidance and encouragement- or we will be seeing more dropouts.

AI is self learning and therefore self teaching.
