The application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now seen in almost every segment of our life. The current study is to explore the perception of teachers and students, on the usage and effectiveness of AI in the classroom. Online survey with open-ended questions is mailed to different participants of both the segments (teachers and students) and the qualitative data obtained through this is analyzed using MAXQDA 2018.1 version. AI is perceived as a bane and also a boon to the education system and to the human intellect. Optimistic utilization of AI in the classrooms is highly recommended by both teacher and student participants. It is also identified that majority of the teachers are more adaptable to embrace new technological changes than students. Further study on generation and geographic diversity based teacher and student perceptions may support more effective implementation of AI in education.
