AI to Offers Personalized Tutors for Students
Khan demonstrated his academy’s chatbot, called Khanmigo, which can help students with a range of disciplines, including arithmetic, computer science, and writing, during his talk. As a part of a pilot program for Khan Academy’s partners, the chatbot was introduced in March. The chatbot has been made available to more than 500 public school districts and institutions so that they can test it out and offer comments.
Khanmigo is a technology solution that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to help both students and teachers in an educational setting. It is powered by GPT-4 technology from OpenAI.
According to Khan, AI might provide tailored support for instructors by assisting with pre-class responsibilities like lesson planning, completing report cards, and other administrative duties. He continued, “This means they can work with students more.”
