«Digitization has many advantages and many disadvantages. How can we preserve this balance in terms of artificial intelligence and education», — said the speaker at a meeting of the Integration club on Tuesday.

Matviyenko said that a categorical opponent of that there was no direct contact of the student with the teacher. «No computer, no amount of technology will replace that feeling, it gives a great deal in training,» — said the MP.

The speaker noted that the progress does not stand still, distance education is developing, but nothing can replace classic University, traditional education.

«If we move in this direction, then the universities would be closed. Everyone will get an education, sitting at home, on the couch, using specialized programs,» said the Senator.
