Teaching Languages with AI Assistance

This week's CSIG talk featured Lewis Johnson of Alelo, a company that has an online AI assisted language teaching system.  Natural language voice language processing is used.  The assistance includes tracking progress, and analyzing how the teaching should be adapted.  The things that good teaching should do.  This essentially uses a chatbot to provide the teaching.  To 'Empower Learning and Teaching'.    When I taught at Columbia I had an excellent (human) teaching assistant,  here we can see how the best of machine assistance might look.   Would like to see how such a systems works in practice, and how it can add behavioral assistance to help learning.   Could there be a gaming of competition included?

The slides are here.     Recording of the talk here.
