Artificial Intelligence & Socratic Method
Artificial Intelligence, which was first defined about 70 years ago but has been developing rapidly for about 25 years, has reached a level that can train us, the people who created it, today. So much so that we are now thinking about how artificial intelligence can be a better trainer. Today, BC. The Socratic Method, which Socrates left as a legacy to humanity from the 400s, is used as one of the training methods of Artificial Intelligence, which is still very young, and gives positive results. Now, after examining these two concepts separately, let's look at how they work together.
-ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)
Artificial intelligencea computer or robot to human assumed to be specific cognitive ability to perform functions is the ability.
Artificial intelligence todayIt is used in many areas from voice assistants on our phones to autonomous driving systems, from social media applications to the education sector. All these systems meet our needs by analyzing our instant or routine behaviors or make suggestions that are suitable for our taste or needs.
ancient greek philosopher SocratesThis method, which is named after , can be summarized as a teaching method by asking questions to the learner. The aim here is to enable the learner to realize the deficiencies and errors in their theories and reach the truth by using their critical thinking, reasoning and logic skills.
With the use of artificial intelligence in education, a personalized learning environment is prepared by determining the student's needs, learning time, topics of interest or deficiencies.
The Relationship between Artificial Intelligence and Socratic Method
The Socratic method allows the learner to reach the truth on his own by asking questions. In this context, having detailed information about the learner profile will give a chance to establish a more effective dialogue. In the use of the Socratic method in learning systems, artificial intelligence comes into play, taking into account the analyzes in every answer given by the learner, and it can ensure the realization of learning in the most effective way.
With the use of artificial intelligence in education, a personalized learning environment is prepared by determining the student's needs, learning time, topics of interest or deficiencies. In addition, the fact that artificial intelligence itself is in a learning structure also provides an advantage in terms of up-to-date information.
Socratic method and artificial intelligence-based teaching systems support important skills such as the learner's critical processing of information and making the acquired knowledge more permanent.
As a result, we can observe that the Socratic method takes on a more effective structure thanks to artificial intelligence, and thus the use of artificial intelligence will turn into an active educational tool in the future.
