Telangana to deploy AI in public schools to modernise education

Education policy 2021 has made a formative assessment of students mandatory.

International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIITH) has started a pilot project with an aim to introduce AI tools in select government schools in Moinabad, Telangana. IIITH has been working with a slew of schools, and the Education Department to build AI and new-age tech solutions to increase opportunities at the grassroots level.

Ramesh Loganathan, Co-Innovation Professor at IIIT-H, said the next step is to meet the stakeholders and chalk out plans for technology implementations in the schools. The projects will be of three to six months duration, he added.

The data collection and building the education portal involve a lot of manual work and is time-consuming. AI-based cameras, speech recognition tech and other AI tools will be used for marking attendance, midday meals etc. The IITH plans to bring in startups with relevant technologies to deploy AI tools, he said.
Education policy 2021 has made a formative assessment of students mandatory. Teachers are expected to evaluate every class and submit a report on the performance of the students. The IITH pilot project will use an AI-based camera system to assist the teachers in rate the performance of the students. The team is building tech to teach spoken languages and is in the process of integrating it to the curriculum.
