How AI Can Bring Equitable Education to Every Child
Date Thursday, Nov 28 Time – Room Check
High-quality teachers are fundamental to student success. Unfortunately, there is a significant lack of them in China. To help address this problem, Squirrel AI Learning has created an AI-powered adaptive engine and first MCM model (Mode of thinking, Capacity and Methodology) to provide high-quality personalised education to Chinese students. Four years after it began, Squirrel AI Learning has developed around 2000 after-school learning centres in China and helped more than two million students to study via their system. In this session, Wei will share Squirrel AI Learning’s vision of creating a super AI teacher and bringing equitable education to every child as an education unicorn in China.
