Because of this, the application of artificial intelligence (AI) in the education sector is rising. AI in education majorly focuses on identifying the needs of students and developing personalized curriculum for enhancing the learning experience of students. According to a the report, in 2019, the global AI in education market reached $1.1 billion and is predicted to generate $25.7 billion in 2030, advancing at a 32.9% CAGR during the forecast period (2020–2030). The two components in the domain are service and solution, between which, the larger demand was created for AI solutions during 2014–2019.

Different applications of AI in education are intelligent tutoring systems, content delivery systems, virtual facilitators, and learning platforms. Chatbots and interactive websites are some other applications. Among these, the largest demand during 2014–2019 was created for learning platforms, which are further expected to be the most in demand during the forecast period.

The fastest growth in demand is projected to be registered by the intelligent tutoring systems applications.
