Indonesia Urges Artificial Intelligence to Boost Education

Minister of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology, Nadiem Makarim has called for the simultaneous development of artificial intelligence and character intelligence on the part of its users and creators. The minister emphasised that artificial intelligence has been in development for at least two decades and is now a part of people’s daily lives in the country.

Administrative duties, which are typically a burden for lecturers during the accreditation application process, can now be facilitated using technology. Education will also become more personal as students will be able to develop themselves based on their interests and skills. Makarim encouraged students to develop not only their general intelligence but also their character to face future challenges.

“The development of science and the global situation will accelerate the application of AI in various fields and will have a massive impact on the world of work in the future. This will be unavoidable, and we cannot stop it,” he noted.

The minister was confident that AI will help in the future in addressing a variety of issues, including those faced by educational institutions such as universities. According to him, AI will assist the university in accelerating the quality of its institution and education, which is in line with the purpose of Freedom Study – Freedom Campus.

“The ability to work in a group, a sense of global unity, creativity, independence, and resilience are all important. These are the traits that we need to imbibe to survive amid fast-changing times,” he stressed.

Makarim also expressed hope that Indonesian students would use technology wisely so that they would be prepared to confront the future with a wealth of novel solutions that they could readily implement. With present technical advancements, future problems will be difficult. The Minister believes that, in the spirit of Freedom Campus, students may be the solution for people in Indonesia and around the world.

Another Indonesian Ed-tech start-up recently developed an AI-based system for improving students’ general knowledge in three fundamental subjects: mathematics, verbal logic, and English. The AI system has two main features, one of which is the ability to practise with hundreds of thousands of questions from three main concentration branches, such as verbal logic, mathematics, and English, which can be adjusted to everyone’s level of understanding. Meanwhile, the other feature provides a variety of insightful knowledge such as philosophy, basic sciences, and history that can be used to support and expand users’ insights and perspectives.

In addition, the government has announced a national strategy for artificial intelligence development, but experts are demanding assurances that advancement in this high-tech subject is both safe and useful to all.

At a time when governments and businesses around the world are rapidly turning to artificial intelligence (AI) for solutions in law enforcement, finance, and health care, Jakarta unveiled a strategy that would guide Indonesia in developing AI between 2020 and 2045.

Bambang Brodjonegoro, Minister of Research and Technology and Head of the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN), mentioned that the country’s AI projects would focus on education and research, health services, bureaucratic reform, food security, mobility, and smart cities.

OpenGov Asia reported that artificial intelligence has grown in popularity in today’s world. It refers to the simulation of natural intelligence in machines that have been programmed to learn and mimic human actions. These machines can learn and perform human-like tasks as they gain experience. As artificial intelligence technology advances, it will have a significant impact on our quality of life. It is only natural that everyone today wants to connect with AI technology in some way, whether as an end-user or by pursuing a career in AI.

In general, AI and digital technology are assisting in the removal of barriers and the expansion of educational opportunities for learners all over the world. Intelligent web search and recommendation engines can help students find the information and resources they need to advance their education.
