How can innovations in AI be used to change the way healthcare in pediatrics is delivered?
Team emPrize, a group of Georgia Tech AI researchers, is developing a suite of virtual tutors for online education that mimic many of the roles of human teachers. According to Dr. Ashok Goel, Professor of Computer Science in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology, these tutors include more than 100 nanotutors for a Georgia Tech online class on artificial intelligence, as well as a virtual tutor for automatically answering questions on the discussion forum for the class. Preliminary results indicate that student self-efficacy in the class is high.
The emPrize (meaning a daring adventure) team is now expanding the scope of their work from online education to blended learning; from cognitive tutoring and question answering to exploration and experimentation, literature survey, and question asking; and from a class on artificial intelligence to Georgia Tech classes on introductory computing and introductory biology. Recently the XPRIZE Foundation selected emPrize to move to the third round of its AI competition.
How can lessons on AI for virtual learning help pediatric innovators bring new discoveries to the pediatric clinic and bedside?
In a 30 minute Q&A, Dr. Goel, along with Leanne West, Chief Engineer of Pediatric Technologies for Georgia Tech and Chief Innovation Officer of the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Pediatric Technology Center, will outline the We will discuss how similar AI technologies can and will be used for healthcare and for work more generally.
