Despite immense progress in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, the deployment of AI knowledge systems for idiom learning has yet to receive attention in either research or development. This article speculates about how AI technologies might be used to foster knowledge of idiomaticity in the future. It argues that the deployment of AI knowledge systems for idiom learning require critical examination. It is suggested that AI knowledge systems can aid the development of idiomatic competence, and should be incorporated into the design of multimedia programs for first and second/foreign language learners as early in their education as possible. Potential applications of future AI knowledge systems for idiom learning are discussed.
