The human touch for AI in learning

Study support service (and CMM advertiser) Studiosity is funding CSIRO’s Data 61 to work on natural language processing and deep learning

Studiosity nominates potential projects, including scoring student writing for readability, measures of student progression, and academic honesty support.

UNSW maths professor and Studiosity academic advisor Chris Tisdell says “a critical aspect of a 24/seven student support service is the human connection, as students become more confident and satisfied when connecting in real time with a person who knows that subject area.

Natural language processing, as part of AI, is also evolving incredibly quickly and I believe an enormous opportunity exists to combine the two to provide enhanced insights for educators and a continuously improving student experience.”
