Riiid’s research papers demonstrate technological advancements and pioneering role in the field of AI for education

“AI in Education (AIEd) is where various fields such as science learning, pedagogy, and cognitive psychology work holistically,” said Jason Juneyoung Park, AI research lead. AI at Riiid. Riiid has been collecting anonymized data since 2015, when AI wasn’t getting much attention, and we continue to focus on AIEd research and expanding technological advancements in research capabilities. »

Two papers accepted at LAK 21 in March are studies on predicting learning behaviors and maximizing learning effects. The paper, SAINT+: Integration of temporal functionalities for EdNet accuracy prediction,defines and applies learning time related data, such as problem solving time and answer submission time, to greatly increase the accuracy of the answer correctness prediction algorithm. In another article titled, Recommendation for effective preparation for standardized exams,an algorithm is presented that selects and recommends problems that maximize the learning effect by predicting learners’ learning skills and enhances those skills with additional learning tools such as online course videos.

A AIED 21, RiiidThe article has been recognized for diagnosing the learner’s learning state with minimal questions and assessing the reliability of the prediction model.

At EDM 21, a paper by Riiid highlights a structure to increase the reliability of AI models and improve learning gaps and score prediction algorithms. In particular, the paper Transfer of knowledge by discriminating pre-training for the prediction of academic performanceaccepted to the EDM was nominated for Best Paper. The article proposes a method to reduce the error rate compared to the most accurate current model by four percent by applying the latest natural language processing technology for the first time in AIEd.

In 2020, Riiid publicly unveiled the world’s largest training dataset, “EdNet”, to launch AIEd research efforts and hosted a global algorithm challenge that incorporates EdNet. Earlier this year, Riiid hosted a workshop for AIed development at AAAI, one of the most prestigious AI conferences in the world. In August, the formation of EdSAFE AI Alliance to establish a healthy ecosystem in the AIEd industry was announced at the ASU+GSV Summit in partnership with DXtera Institute. Organizations involved in the initiative also include Carnegie Learning, ETS, GSV Ventures, UL, Digital Promise, German Education Alliance and Education Alliance Finland, among others. UNESCO is also involved in supporting the mission.
