  • Ringle announced its ‘AI-Based Customized Learning..

    This article is about the AI ​​learning system jointly developed by Professor Juho Kim's research team in our school and Ringle. An AI-based customized learning system presented by Professor Juho Kim's research team is scheduled to be part of the Ringle service in the second half of this year. Ringle, which provides one-on-one video English learning services with tutors from prestigious universities in the United States, announced on the 2nd at the American Computer Association Learning at Scale (ACM Learning at Scale 2022) academic conference, that it developed an AI learning system through a joint research project with KAIST Professor Juho Kim’s Interaction Lab. The RLens system, presented by Professor Juho Kim's team at the conference, uses AI to analyze the content of one-on-one English lessons and diagnose learners' English proficiency in three areas: Complexity, Accuracy, and Fluency. Through this diagnosis, the learner can understand his/her learning achievement from a multi-dimensional perspective. The RLens system was developed to improve upon the flat diagnosis used by most existing evaluation systems including accredited certification tests, which represents the learner's English proficiency with a single score. Rather than assessing English proficiency based on scores in listening, reading, speaking, and writing fields, the RLens system diagnoses proficiency in three dimensions - complexity, accuracy, and fluency, which are the main axes of language proficiency in pedagogical theory. A learner's ability in each dimension is judged based on the following criteria: Complexity is the ability to use complex and diverse structures of English. Accuracy is the ability to use grammatically and semantically correct expressions. Fluency is the ability to speak fluently without pauses. The RLens system provides diagnosis through artificial intelligence, as well as goal setting for skill improvement and appropriate learning recommendations. It also includes a feature in which AI tracks whether the learner has fully absorbed the tutor's feedback and does not repeat the same mistakes. “The cycle of skill diagnosis, goal setting, and learning recommendation is a system that is one step closer to truly one-on-one personalized learning,” explained KAIST Professor Juho Kim about the RLens system. Professor Juho Kim joined Ringle in March of this year and will be working together for a year while on his sabbatical year. He is currently in charge of the commercialization of research content. “I am delighted that the papers containing the results of research conducted jointly with Ringle over the past two years have been accepted one after another at global conferences. We plan to accelerate product development so that the research contents can be reflected in the Ringle service in the second half of the year,” added Professor Kim. Ringle's Co-Founder Sungpah Lee said, “If the research results are reflected, Ringle will be reborn as a true AI-based learning service. At first, AI is mainly planned to be applied to provide customized learning to learners, but in the future, the scope will be expanded to improve the quality of education through interactions between native English tutors and AI. AI will improve with the tutor’s input and will also be able to correct mistakes or errors that tutors make when correcting learners’ English.” Professor Juho Kim's team has published work on an analysis of Ringle's learning method at another world-class educational technology conference called Learning Analytics and Knowledge (LAK) in March of this year. The researchers named Ringle's learning method, in which a learner takes classes with multiple instructors, a distributed tutorship and analyzed the aspects of distributed tutorship for the first time in the world through data collected from 16,000 learners, 500 questionnaires, and 40 interviews. According to the study, 40% of learners meet a new tutor for each session.

    Reference article: https://zdnet.co.kr/view/?no=20220421180134 "Making a service robot that can interpret human emotions with AI" This is an interview with Professor Sung-Eui Yoon and Professor Sungho Cho from the KAIST School of Computing. ■ A service robot that assists by understanding human behavior KAIST SoC Professor Sung-Eui Yoon and Professor Sungho Jo jointly conducted research on ‘Robot social interaction technology’. The key to this technology is understanding human behavior and assisting humans using the camera on the robot. Existing robots were limited to performing specific tasks, but these robots have the advantage of being able to help in more diverse situations. Professor Yoon explained, “Robots are interesting at first, but the more you use them, the more you discover the shortcomings of their simplicity." “The goal of our research with KT is to address these shortcomings and create a robot that can cope with various environments,” he added. Prof. Sung-Eui Yoon Robots equipped with social interaction technology can predict human behavior to help with tasks. Professor Yoon explained this using a cooking robot as an example. He said, “When cooking, the existing robots could only help when we cook according to a set scenario. However, with social interaction technology, robots can help even if we change the order of operations.” Professor Jo explained that robot social interaction technology can be applied to all service robots. “The technology can be applied to all robots that serve people,” he said. “For now, we are developing a robot according to general situations, and when there is a specific application case, it will be optimized and released as a product.” Prof. Sungho Jo Professors Yoon and Jo consider a robot that can recognize human emotions as the final stage of robot social interaction technology. Professor Yoon said, “Current technology has broadened the set of robots' actions by recognizing human behavior. If research in related fields continues, it is possible to create a service robot that can read people's emotional state and respond accordingly."
