Empathy: It is not a far-fetched idea that machine learning will duplicate the ability to show or teach empathy, which can teach the students to respect others by placing themselves in the same situation.

Self-Restraint: With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), students get to know about the utmost level of patience and self-control that might get difficult to reach, so it is essential to learn and figure out one’s sentiments for emotional intelligence to relate to them.

Here emotional intelligence will play an important role in connecting with the students and motivate them to excel in their lives.

The implementation of machine learning and AI or to be precise the Edtech learning in the classrooms and life relies on the execution of one’s emotional intelligence because machines never existed on their own in the first place.
