Artificial Intelligence, Education, Applications, COVID-19, Lectures, Google Applications


In the modern era, artificial intelligence applications have become one of the most essential and prominent aspirations of countries in their various organisations and sectors, especially the education sector, due to the ability of these techniques to help this sector to develop rapidly and increase productivity by imparting scientific material in a beautiful way to the learners. This article provides an overview of the significance of artificial intelligence applications and their role in learning, and how they can be employed in the future. All information in this scenario is collected from a set of studies published in the time of COVID-19 pandemic between 2019 and 2021. This scenario concluded that artificial intelligence is the future that is constantly growing and can be benefited from in the field of education and must be properly exploited to build a new world that depends heavily on digital societies.
