While AI will never replace human teachers, it can provide beneficial learning support and is already being integrated into school systems at both the classroom and institution level. One common way teachers are using AI virtual assistance is through the use of chatbots for encouragement, reminders, and prompt assistance to help students stay on track.
For practitioners, AI virtual assistants offer hands-free documentation capabilities. A surgeon who wants to add a note to a patient’s file while doing a procedure can use a voice-powered device in the room listens and responds in a hands-free way. And digital consultant apps can help caregivers streamline medical consultations based on medical history and common medical knowledge.
