Education Ministry developing AI strategy to improve outcomes

The Ministry of Education and Higher Education is developing an artificial intelligence (AI) strategy for the education sector following the goals of Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030 in the field of AI, said a top official.

“The strategy will focus basically on providing easy access and optimal use of big data in regulating the educational process,” said Eng. Mona Salem Al Fadhli, Director of the Information Systems Department at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.

Al Fadhli was speaking in a Qatar Radio programme which hosted several officials and experts to discuss localisation of artificial intelligence in GCC and the Arab world.

She said the strategy aims to develop prediction systems to enhance the ministry’s ability to monitor and control the quality of the educational process through the use of technology represented by artificial intelligence. Through the technology, a prediction system is created using data mining techniques that result in predictive modelling, which helps anticipate future trends.

Al Fadhli said that the process of developing this strategy for the education sector began about a year ago in a bid to provide an AI foundation.
