AI the Next Step for Education: Tech Innovations Making Our Classrooms Smarter

Speaker:  Zitao Liu – Beijing, China
Topic(s):  Information Systems, Search, Information Retrieval, Database Systems, Data Mining, Data Science


With the recent development of AI, there has been tremendous changes in both offline and online education. Entire in-class interactions and behaviors between students and instructors have been structured and stored, which provide valuable information for analyzing class performance and improving the learning experience. In this talk, I will first show some successful applications we deployed in TAL's offline and online classrooms. Then I will outline the challenges we meet during the course of building real- world AI+Edu applications. After that, I will talk about the three initiatives we developed on (1) building a quality-assured online learning platform, which is able to utilize multimodal information from the online environment to conduct pedagogical monitoring and alerting; (2) studying a cost-effective and consistent approach of verbal fluency evaluation, which help elementary students improve their oral language skills after school; and (3) getting inside the black box of classroom by neural multimodal learning, which helps teachers get instant feedback on their pedagogical instructions.
