AI with programmed data on specific topics available in library's and higher education facilitys to allow students and those who want informaton about somthing for example the buildings history they are in or relative information on certain topics acceptable via the means of AI on a screen or monitor much like what is available currently in Manchester central library. And the same available for university's where long lectures can be gone though again at the choice of the student without the teacher needing to go over it again.

Why the contribution is important

Important as it allows pressure to be taken of students and teachers as it enables an accessible database in convenient places for them. And allows a better learning experience at library's and even museum's etc. Without need of hiring or training extra staff just the initial set up of the AI software with the cprrect information that can be gained easily as well through accessing web for information.

    Can you outline how this would differ from a conventional search method?

    Suggest it should go further than this and provide an AI learning element where inforation provided is automatically pitched at the level of attainment for the recipient. i.e. if you're in a museum and you want info on the item in fron of you, wha you get is based on your required or desired knowdledge base. e.g. a primary school pupil will get basic information presented in a fun format, a university student would get far more detail and links to other artifacts line of enquiry.

    AI could/ should enable better differential learning within the same classroom too where high or low attainers should be able to continue learning at a pace which suits them.

    GNolan81, this is pretty much my thoughts on why this AI is/ would be different compared with a regular search engine. I am aware that search engines are in a way a form of AI and it is very common that we use a form of AI with our searches. But for me using a search engine would produce generic results regardless of who is asking for them. A univercitu student would get the same answers

    as anybody else whereas as GNolan81 put it, it is pitched at the level required and more specific information can be obtained through this AI that is suited to individual needs and of greater relevance to the person using it.
