April Fool's Day: FEE CTU to be the first in the Czech Republic to replace lecturers with artificial intelligence

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of CTU is always one step ahead. It is the first faculty in the Czech Republic to pilot the use of artificial intelligence in the educational process. Instead of lecturers, it will be avatars created by artificial intelligence who will give lectures. As a result, the lecturers will have more time to do research or supervise bachelor's and master's theses, while still being available to the students for seminars. From the new academic year 2024/2025, this technological solution will be extended to all courses.
