The use of artificial intelligence techniques for distance learning

The article describes some practices of voice recognition technologies based on artificial intelligence to improve the educational process in a remote format. This is relevant to modern remote education environment. The author presents an analysis of existing approaches to the use of artificial intelligence technologies in the educational process. Elements of artificial intelligence in a specialist software make the educational process more modern and convenient both for the learner and the teacher. One of the implementations for a natural user interface is a voice-user interface, which recognizes words to understand spoken commands and to answer questions, it converts the text into speech. The author has carried out an analytical review of implementations of specialized applications for Yandex assistant in which, the voice interface is used to improve children's language skills. Algorithm development of an application for Google assistant which uses voice recognition technologies and artificial intelligence for for teaching a foreign language is described. The application can be used in the educational process for teaching academic English; it also allows to increase English vocabulary, train the construction of grammatically correct scientific expressions, and memorize scientific language patterns.
