Our lives are steeped in AI: from remote sleep control to car sensor. Considering the benefits that AI can offer in computing and public health activities, how will AI impact PE? Will humans be replaced in everything? Will we still be able to learn? In educational context the AI promotes learning models based only on knowledge transfer and robust assessing routine. But are test scores accurate indicators of learning? Even if the PE take advantage in video and storage system the AI will not replace the area of brain that are implicated in the cues synthesis and in motor control.
