CSIG (Cognitive Systems Institute Group) Talk - Aug 2, 2018 - 10:30-11am US Eastern
Title: Empowering Teaching and Learning Using Al
Speaker: Lewis Johnson, Alelo

Abstract: As artificial intelligence (Al) becomes a practical, mainstream technology, it raises questions about how Al will transform teaching and learning. Will it replace teachers with algorithms? This webinar will show how Al can be used to create intelligent teachers' assistants that provide learners with immersive practice, formative assessment, and personalized instruction, and at the same time provide teachers with analytics for tracking and measuring student progress. It thus enables both learning and teaching to become more efficient and effective. Al also makes possible a data-driven approach to instructional design, in which data collected from learners is used to rapidly retrain and adapt the behavior of the learning system. These points will be illustrated in the context of an immersive learning environment for spoken English skills.

Dr. Lewis Johnson is an internationally recognized expert in Al education. For his work on the first Alelo immersive game, Tactical Iraqi, he won DARPA's Significant Technical Achievement Award. He has been a past President of the International Al in Education Society and was co-winner of the 2017 Autonomous Agents Influential Paper Award for his work in the field of pedagogical agents. He has been invited to speak at many  International conferences such as the International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems, and presented a Distinguished Lecture at the National Science Foundation.
