China’s Dominance In AI Tutoring Apps Raises Concerns For US Education System

As AI-powered homework apps revolutionize the way students approach their studies, a troubling trend has emerged: Chinese-owned companies dominate the market. Question AI, founded by the creators of popular Chinese homework app Zuoyebang, and Gauth, launched by TikTok parent ByteDance, are the two most popular AI helpers in the US as of May.

The success of these Chinese apps is the result of a concerted effort to target the American market following China’s crackdown on its private tutoring sector in 2021. Many Chinese service providers have since pivoted to overseas users, with the US being their most coveted market due to its size.

While AI tutors offer convenience and affordability compared to traditional tutoring methods, their reliance on large language models like ChatGPT raises concerns about accuracy and the potential for students to delegate their homework without actually learning. As these apps gain popularity, educators are grappling with how to incorporate this technology into the learning process while ensuring students develop critical thinking skills.

The dominance of Chinese companies in the AI tutoring market has also raised questions about the US government’s role in advancing AI education and protecting student data from potential foreign influence. As the AI education landscape continues to evolve, policymakers and educators must work together to address these challenges and ensure that American students receive a high-quality education in the age of artificial intelligence.
