Automatic acquisition of knowledge for Intelligent Tutoring Systems
Wed Jan 21 15:10:00 NZDT 2004 in Room 031, MSCS
Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) are educational programs that assist students in their learning by adaptively providing pedagogical assistance. Although highly regarded in the research community as effective teaching tools, developing an ITS is a labour intensive and time consuming process. The main cause behind the extreme time and effort requirements is the knowledge acquisition bottleneck.
The clear solution to overcome this challenge is to automate the process of acquiring knowledge. We believe that the domain ontology can be used as a starting point for automatic acquisition of knowledge for constraint based tutors. This seminar presents an overview of the current state of the art in automatic knowledge acquisition and our work so far.
