Applications and Issues of AI...

Artificial Intelligence has come a long way in the past few years. You could say that it has gradually started to become part of every career almost. Some of the ways you can see Artificial Intelligence being used in the education and instructional design worlds would be smart content, intelligent tutor systems, virtual facilitators, content analytics, teacher and AI collaboration, and universal access (ColorWhistle, 2023). Instructional Designers can use artificial intelligence when searching for information for projects on which to work. According to Devlin Peck (2023), Instructional Designers “who us AI tools will be positioned to make a massive impact in much less time”. It all depends on how it is being used. An Instructional Designer using AI can cut down work time in some areas to allow for more time for other areas that artificial intelligence can’t do such as talking to humans or completing interviews for the project.

Now, when you are thinking about instructional designers using artificial intelligence to help build courses or even websites, you worry about the loss of inclusion and equality. Inclusion AI is needed to make sure that these items are taken care of when working on a project. World Economic Forum (2022) produced a blueprint for inclusion that is great for making sure that something made using artificial intelligence shows inclusion and equality. One of the main points in the blueprint to do is to identify “a target variable with honesty, integrity and transparency can help teams avoid potential harms emerging down the line” (World Economic Forum, 2022). Another huge and even crucial part in anything is responsibility. All projects need someone to take responsibility and even oversight beginning at the early stages of the project (World Economic Forum, 2022).

Ethics can always be a concern. When it comes to artificial intelligence the concerns that arise falls more on the information that the artificial intelligence gathers. Some of those concerns include: “bias, plagiarism, intellectual property, misuse, and the potential to generate misinformation, fake news, or misleading content” (Collins, 2023). If these items are not taken serious enough, then there could be negative effects and even harm reputation or aid in the spread of false information. Bias is hard to avoid at times but can be avoided by using a database that is not considered biased.

As far as learning my role in integrating AI in learning endeavors, I hope to learn more during this class. My plan is to use the blueprint that World Economic Forum has that tells how to make sure to have inclusion and equality. I will also use AI to simplify task that I am working on during a project so that other parts of the project. As I am using AI on projects, I will make sure that the information that AI is gathering its information from non-biased media so that the information I am providing for the project is not biased. Placing these plans together will allow me to have a successful course or project.
