The term ”Artificial Intelligence” was coined in 1956 at a conference at Dartmouth College and since then it has undergone
constant development and has evolved radically. Prominent pioneers of the term include John McCarthy, Marvin Minsky,
Allen Newell, and Herbert A. Simon. The application of AI in education worldwide has increased dramatically with its
importance growing at an increasing rate. The objective of this research is to bibliometrically analyze applications of AI
in contemporary education. The methodology includes a Prisma of the articles of three fundamental databases: Scopus
(n=390), Mendeley (n=113), and Science Direct (n=3,594). A total of n=4,097 articles in English and Spanish were
analyzed. The systematic literature review of recent works employed a mixed approach using quantitative and qualitative
methods. It was inferred by the authors that AI is revolutionizing education by offering personalized and efficient solutions to
improve students’ learning. One of the main conclusions of this research is that in contemporary education, students are one
of the groups that are most affected by AI. Furthermore, the human intelligence of teachers plays a fundamental role since
they adapt their methodologies to leverage new technologies. Finally, it is worth noting that decisions made in schools and
universities support new educational models based on technology
