17 Days of AI for Good — SDG 4— Quality Education
Goal: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
AI XPRIZE Suggestion: “Virtualized, intelligent mentors and responsive personalized learning is revolutionizing education, and improving participation and outcomes — all powered by AI. Online providers such as Coursera have AI-produced granular information for effective learning. Big data analysis is improving graduation rates of low-income and first-generation college students by 30%, spotting warning signs before dropout to allow targeted interventions.” — AI XPRIZE
AI For Education
The explosion of Massive Online Open Courses was largely initiated and pushed by the AI and ML research and teaching community. Education and adaptive online tutors have been a focus of HCI research in AI for years. The other suggestions by XPRIZE are very good ones.
