AI-Based Virtual Tutors – The Future of Education?

Chun Ming Chin

“This blog post is about the UC Berkeley Virtual Tutor project and the speech recognition technologies that were tested as part of that effort. We share best practices for machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques in selecting models and engineering training data for speech and image recognition. These speech recognition models, which are integrated with immersive games, are currently being tested at middle schools in California.” This article specifically addresses the accuracy and responsiveness of speech recognition software, which is relevant both to future military training concepts and also for human-machine interfaces for the control of military hardware. This  potentially could enable the replacement of human crew with speech interfaced AI.
