The report also noted that one of the biggest trends in the market over the forecast period will be the utilization of chatbots which use AI, machine learning and deep learning to store, process and communicate data to pupils.
ResearchandMarkets also noted that the growth will be driven primarily by a growing emphasis on customized learning paths in which teachers rely on machine learning technologies to turn student data into actionable insights into their performance.
However, the growth of the market is expected to be hindered by the costs associated with AI systems in education.
