With the rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and a continuously growing interest in their application in educational contexts, there has been significant growth in the scientific literature in relation to the application of AI in education (AIEd). This study aims to present multiple perspectives on the development of AIEd in terms of relevant grants, conferences, journals, software tools, article trends, top issues, institutions, and researchers to provide an overview of AIEd for its further development and implementation. With this study, we contribute to the research field in terms of enabling educators and scholars to understand the status and development of relevant grants and publications concerning AIEd. Also, findings concerning active actors can help educators and scholars identify the active researchers and institutions in the research on AIEd. Furthermore, researchers and educators are able to identify relevant journals and be more aware of major issues in AIEd studies. In addition, we also highlight the significance and necessity of the launch of the new Elsevier journal AIEd-related journal named Computers & Education: Artificial Intelligence.
