The Center for Data Innovation spoke with Kent Fuka, president and CEO of Querium, an Austin-based startup that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to power its StepWise STEM education intelligent tutor. Fuka spoke about the benefits of personalized learning and AI-based tutors.
“Throughout history, education has been a teacher/student interaction in which knowledge flows from one person to another. This is still the status quo. But a number of technologies being rolled out could challenge this model. Arguably the most significant of these is artificial intelligence, along with related technologies such as neural networks and machine learning.” Querium is pleased to be featured in the use of AI in education.
