ILA, the Intelligent Learning Assistant, was designed with classrooms in mind and aims to enhance both learning and teaching! Specifically, it gives teachers more time to actually TEACH by doing roll call, collecting assignments, distributing materials, finding and managing resources, and, more importantly, keep track of pupil progress and participation.
Harnessing IBM’s cognitive computing system, Watson, ILA collects, analyzes, and converts information into natural language. Not only does this allow educators to access, evaluate, and integrate new teaching material, but it also provides them with analysis and diagnostics on the progress of each individual student’s verbal skills and literary understanding. This makes it possible for educations to assess and tailor the learning behavior and path of each individual student.
