Implementing an Interest-Driven Intelligent Animal Companion System(2/3)

Project Details


Based on Interest-Driven Creator Theory (IDC), this proposed project will work on two dimensions. One dimension is to build intelligent animal learning companions. To achieve this, we need to collect and analysis vast data from stored students’ learning portfolios, design interaction models between the student and intelligent learning companions, evelop related artificial intelligence in education technology, and construct intelligent learning companions. These companions will foster students’ learning interest, creation capability, and learning habits. Another dimension of this project is to establish an intelligent IDC-based learning environment, including experimental school sites and online learning community. In this environment, not only students’ learning activities are supported by intelligent learning companions, but also what and how they learn as well as their interest in learning can be enhanced through various artificial intelligence in education technologies. We hope that such intelligent IDC-based learning environment can form an essential part of future learning environment.
