OPTIMISING EDUCATION BY THE INTEGRATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND AFFECTIVE COMPUTING: A PERSPECTIVE FOR THE PREVENTION OF EARLY SCHOOL LEAVING

Diletta Chiusaroli, Leila De Vito

Abstract


The international scientific research emphasizes the growing importance of the application of Artificial Intelligence in the field of education. This paper aims to reflect on the possible uses of Artificial Intelligence in predicting the causes of early school leaving. In addition, the integration of the affective computing in predictive models based on artificial intelligence, could offer new opportunities to identify, support and motivate students with emotional difficulties.


Keywords


early school leaving, affective computing, artificial intelligence, school discomfort, prevention
