In the article, the authors analyse the basic concepts of "artificial intelligence" and "Education 4.0" and assess the prospects for their implementation in Ukrainian society. It is established that against the backdrop of rapid technological development in the context of Industry 4.0, the issue of effective transformation management is becoming increasingly important in order to implement the necessary changes at the right time. To keep pace with the realities of the fourth industrial revolution, the concept of Education 4.0 was created, which envisages new approaches to teaching, communication between students, digital learning and other aspects of higher education. The purpose of this study is to establish the directions of transformation in higher education in Ukraine, taking into account the current conditions: the war started by the Russian Federation and to determine the level of knowledge of students about the basic concepts of Education 4.0 and to determine the level of use of artificial intelligence tools in their educational institutions. Artificial intelligence methods are increasingly supporting Education 4.0. We are seeing an ever-growing demand for adaptive and personalised education. The study involved 150 students from the Danube Institute of the National University of Odesa Maritime Academy and the State University of Trade and Economics. The survey was conducted in Google Forms developed by the authors, where students had to answer questions about the specifics of using artificial intelligence and Education 4.0 in closed answers. Having analysed the answers of students, it can be concluded that only a third of respondents have an idea of the basic concepts of Education 4.0 and its role in the educational environment, and personalised learning takes place in educational institutions, according to the vast majority of students, which is a prerequisite for both the use of AI and the implementation of Education 4.0.
