Computer Algebra Systems & Artificial Intelligence

Kostas Zotos


From four-function calculators to calculators (or computers) with Computer Algebra System (CAS) software, Mathematics computing technology has advanced. With just a few button pushes, CASs can solve a wide range of mathematical problems, which is a true quantum leap in technology. The implications of having software in the classroom that can, for example, expand and factorize algebraic expressions, solve equations, differentiate functions, and find anti-derivatives are causing the mathematical community to engage in a heated debate about whether this is one of the most exciting or frightening developments in the history of education. It was only a matter of time before Artificial Intelligence entered the field of Science. This is now also the case with Mathematics, one of the dominant, perhaps the most basic, but also the most "difficult" of the sciences. The human mind, for better or for worse, has its limits. As we see in every manifestation of our lives, in this case, technology is being enlisted to help humanity take the next step, whether it has to do with automation and practical matters, or with knowledge and exploration. Creating a model that is understandable to humans is the primary objective of Artificial Intelligence. Additionally, concepts and methods from numerous mathematical fields can be used to prepare these models. In this paper, we will examine the use of AI in CASs and explore some ways to optimize them. The documentation sheets are the data source that we used to examine their characteristics. The research results reveal that there are many tips that we can follow to accelerate performance.
