Our tutoring systems are designed for classroom integration through alignment with standards, inclusion of assessment and reporting tools for teachers, and strong emphasis on learning outcomes. We work with master teachers to create and review the content and scaffolding. The K12@USC systems can also be used at home, or through after-school and community programs. If you would like more information, please contact project director Carole Beal.
Autonomous Learning Algorithms
Jean : Jean is an architecture that models developmental learning in an autonomous agent platform. Jean acts and learns in computer simulations, building up a richer understanding of the world her over time as she interacts with her environment.
Wubble World : Wubble World is a project to design autonomous agents that can learn concepts and language from a live human teacher. By providing a fun, interactive game environment, we are able to tap into large amounts of free human instruction.
Developmental Chunking : Humans naturally segment the world we perceive into understandable chunks. This project seeks to understand the underlying mechanisms and mathematics that enable this automatic "chunking" of our perceived experience.
