The article presents an analysis of possible directions of using artificial intelligence in education. It is shown that artificial intelligence in modern distance education contributes to its further development in the direction of modernization and has a significant impact, especially on the modern distance learning system. The requirements for artificial intelligence on the part of education and the negative consequences of the use of artificial intelligence and problems that may affect the quality of education are analyzed. The possible directions of work in terms of the development of artificial intelligence related to the development of knowledge representation models, the creation of knowledge bases forming the core of the expert system are considered. Attention is drawn to the fact that an intelligent learning system should be able to perform various functions of a teacher (to help in the process of solving problems, to determine the cause of students’ mistakes, to choose the optimal educational impact) almost as intelligently as a person does. Attention is also paid to such a direction as the use of intelligent chat-bots or conversational agents and their applications.

Keywords: artificial intelligence, distance learning, expert system, intelligent chatbot, digital educational environment, e-learning, digital education.

FundingThe research was carried out with the financial support of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation within a framework of realizing of State Assignment No.073-00072-21-01 under the project “Digital transformation of education: development, testing of models for the implementation of distance learning in educational institutions of all levels of education”
