Since artificial intelligence (AI) is extensively used in the field of education, it presents various opportunities in teaching and learning. In education, AI is chiefly used to impart knowledge, stimulate comprehension, heighten intelligence, and is treasured as support in learning. It is also instrumental in empowering and inspiring students. The emergence of AI also has a positive impact on inclusive education. Because these technologies can potentially transform teaching and learning, it is important to understand how they can be used to further support inclusive education. This non-empirical research analyzed some advantages and challenges of incorporating AI in teaching and learning and highlighted how it influences inclusion. Based on the literature, some of the advantages of AI are improved performance of students, motivation, and encouragement of students. This review also identified some challenges associated with the use of AI for inclusive education, such as technological difficulties, poor connectivity, pedagogical issues, and limitations of the database. Some recommendations are proposed to address these challenges. This research can assist educators, parents, students, government officials, and policymakers in making proper decisions on the effective use of AI and inclusion.
