Artificial Intelligence, education, character, al-Ghazali


The world of education is undergoing a paradigm shift from the classical era to the digital era. This adult pupil has begun to get caught up with the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that can help pupils in completing tasks. Nevertheless, the existence of AI also brings new challenges to the Islamic character of pupils. The purposes of this research are: (1) To describe Artificial Intelligence in education (2) To describe the Artificial Intelligence in Islamic character education from the perspective of Imam Al-Ghazali. The results of this study show that AI  in the world of education can shape students more independently and help teachers develop learning media. Despite this, Artificial Intelligence causes students to reduce human interaction and decrease social activity in the classroom. Priest Al-Ghazali believes that AI can help students in improving their knowledge of science and technology, but can not shape the character of students who are charismatic and understand their religious teachings with clear sources like Al-Qur'an and Al-Hadits, not from the Internet.Based on the research that has been carried out, it can be concluded that the use of AI in the education of Islamic character according to Imam Al-Ghazali is still less relevant and still needs to be accompanied by a teacher to form the character of the student who practices karimah according to the teachings of the religion clearly origin.
