Schools must move from the Anglo-Saxon education system to the method driven by artificial intelligence: Kant

New Delhi, September 5 () Schools in India need to move from the Anglo-Saxon education system to the teaching method based on artificial intelligence (AI), Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said Thursday.

Less than 20 percent of graduates in India are employable and, therefore, it is important to boost the teaching of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence at IITs and engineering universities to increase their employability, Kant said at an event here.

At the school level, India needs to move away from the Anglo-Saxon education system to provide personalized and adaptive AI-based learning opportunities for children.

That said, India's education system must be more innovative and driven by new technology, therefore, we are actively facilitating online learning at the government level, Bertelsmann India said at the Summit.

The summit was designed to drive powerful interactions with actors in the educational ecosystem: an exciting combination of policy makers, opinion leaders, educators, investors, among others.

The Bertelsmann India Summit arrives at a very opportune moment as the education sector in India is undergoing a massive transformation marked by the emergence of several innovative companies of the new era that are integrating education and technology at all levels, Dr. Pankaj Makkar, Bertelsmann India Investments Bertelsmann India Corporate Center said. He said the organization is also working closely with the creators of ecosystems, including the government to mark the beginning of the next phase of sector growth. KPM KKS BAL
