The term "artificial intelligence" AI is used to describe machines that means the "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem solving".AI is based on machine learning, deep learning and neural networks.

Artificial intelligence is already used in many fields, such as medicine, education and counseling, in facial recognition, voice recognition, photo and video manipulation, artificial creativity (writing, music composition, etc.), natural language processing, handwriting recognition, data mining , virtual reality, image processing.

Chat GBT as a component of AI, is programmed not to offer medical advice or psycho-pedagogical advice, and if these are requested – AI recommends consulting a specialist, so here is an ethical aspect.

Chat GBT can become a partner in psycho-pedagogical counseling, but it will not replace human experience, sensory experiences and motor experiences, related to motor skills. We the human being need sensory, feeling, movement, emotional – social and cognitive in our lives to develop personally, AI can create routines and exercises suitable for personal development, but it cannot substitute human experience.

UNESCO declared  that "we need a human-centered artificial intelligence that must be put at the service of humans and not the other way around."
