The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in education has been around for some time, usually to do tasks that require human intelligence. The earliest memory of AI would be adaptive testing, in which the questions became increasingly difficult as you answered them correctly. Computing power has increased dramatically in the last decade or so, and artificial intelligence is also evolving to play a larger role in education for both teachers and students.
Ed-tech players have attracted a whopping $3.81 billion in funding only in the first seven months of 2021, according to a report from analytics firm Tracxn. AI-based education technologies will soon enable us to read students’ facial expressions using facial recognition and determine where and when they are struggling and to tailor and alter the lessons to suit their requirements. Teachers will be able to learn in detail about each of the students. Here we have listed the top 5 B2B fastest growing Ed-Tech companies who are leveraging AI and disrupting the education sector:

Next Assessment helps all types of learners to flourish with adaptive assessments that adjust to the learning needs of individual students. It analyses students’ knowledge with the Smart Concept Test based on Item Response Theory, which determines the concept-level understanding of a student in a particular chapter, and the Smart Revision Test Based on Knowledge Space Theory, which gauges a learner’s ability to understand an entire chapter by linking various concepts within it.
