Automation is changing many jobs. Even AI-enhanced teaching is on the rise in China. Digital teachers don’t need time off, are never late for work, and – if programmed correctly – are immune to biases favoring or discriminating against students. Jing Ting and Si Qi, writers for Chinese tech media platform 36Kr, scrutinize current forms of AI-enhanced teaching and explain the popularity of AI-enhanced learning products. In this report, they circumspectly analyze why some investors hesitate to bet on AI teachers and conclude that human teachers aren’t on the chopping block – at least for now.
