The Issue Of Artificial Intelligence In Education


The rapid advancements in technology have transformed every outlook and experience and education is not an exclusion. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has gained ground and is expected to be a game changer, giving us immense potential to redesign education. If AI were to use to improve learning outcomes, personalize instruction, and automate tasks, all of which have the potential to transform and develop Philippine education. The promising potential benefits of the use of AI in education may result in improved learning outcomes, for AI can be used to personalize instruction or artificial teacher who can give a variety of answers and provide students with the level of support they need to succeed which can lead to the end goal of teaching, the improved learning outcomes.


Some even argue that AI can replace teachers. For instance, AI-powered chatbots have the ability to answer questions and provide their own feedback. This information can be used to provide students with targeted instruction. According to Bard AI, the information provided by the AI is intelligent content creation. As provided thereof, AI algorithms can generate and curate educational content, reducing the burden on educators. Natural Language Processing (NLP) enables the automated creation of interactive textbooks, quizzes, and lesson plans. AI algorithms can also curate vast repositories of educational resources, recommending relevant materials to teachers and students based on their preferences and learning objectives. This saves time, enhances content quality, and promotes a dynamic learning environment.


However, there are ethical concerns regarding the use of AI in education which may run afoul of the law of the country since all contents are considered intellectual property. One of the concerns is the ownership of information provided by AI. Can you own the information provided by AI? Who is the owner of such information? Can the teachers use the information provided by AI? How about the students, can they copy the personalized essay provided by the AI and submit the same for their homework task without the law on plagiarism? I made an inquiry to the Bard AI regarding the concern, and this is the response:


The ownership of work created by AI is a complex issue that is still being debated by lawmakers and legal experts. In the United States, copyright law does not explicitly recognize AI as a creator of works, so it is unclear who owns the copyright to AI-generated works.


There are a few different theories about who might own the copyright to AI-generated works. One theory is that the copyright belongs to the person or entity that created the AI algorithm. Another theory is that the copyright belongs to the person or entity that trained the AI algorithm. Finally, it is also possible that the copyright belongs to the person or entity that commissioned the AI to create the work.


The ownership of AI-generated works is likely to be decided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the specific facts of each case. However, it is clear that the law is not yet clear on this issue, and it is likely to be a topic of debate for many years to come.


Here are some additional factors that may be considered when determining the ownership of AI-generated works:

  • The level of human input into the creation of the work.

  • The extent to which the AI is capable of independent thought and creativity.

  • The purpose for which the work was created.

  • The commercial value of the work.

It is important to note that the ownership of AI-generated works is not just a legal issue. It is also a moral and ethical issue. Some people believe that AI should not be considered a creator of works and that the copyright should always belong to the human who created the AI algorithm or who commissioned the AI to create the work. Others believe that AI should be recognized as a creator of works and that they should be entitled to the same copyright protections as humans.


The ownership of AI-generated works is a complex issue with no easy answers. It is an issue that is likely to be debated for many years to come.


Our Supreme Court held that Infringement of copyright is a trespass on a private domain owned and occupied by the owner of the copyright, and, therefore, protected by law, and infringement of copyright, or piracy, which is a synonymous term in this connection, consists in the doing by any person, without the consent of the owner of the copyright, of anything the sole right to do which is conferred by statute on the owner of the copyright.


However, one may argue that AI cannot own intellectual property since it is not a person. But of course, it is also possible that AI could be granted intellectual property rights through legal fiction or artificial persons recognized by our laws. The question of whether or not who owned the information provided by AI surely will be debated for years to come by experts. In conclusion, the best way to deal with this issue is to use the information provided by AI and give proper citations for academic or schoolwork.
