Machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence that gives systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience, accessing data in order to look for patterns and make better decisions based on previous examples.
The TAFE NSW Digital Lab partners with industry to explore applications of machine learning to solve business and industry problems. Additionally, the TAFE NSW Digital Lab is exploring opportunities to improve the learning experience by developing:
- Learning analytics that can track and identify gaps in students' or staffs' knowledge and recommend next steps (e.g. adaptive learning systems)
- Dynamic scheduling to match students who need the most help with teachers who have the most available time or matching staff with relevant trainers
- Grading systems that automatically assess and score student and trainee responses to assessments and digital assignments on a large scale
