An AI powered assistant to enhance education for the future generation
* Work in progress *
In today's fast-paced world, the rapid advancements in AI have sparked apprehensions about the future of work. As the children of today grow up to become tomorrow's workforce, it becomes imperative to equip them with the skills necessary to thrive in an evolving job market. KAI is a versatile addition to any school curriculum which focuses on developing the 4Cs in children while actively involving parents and teachers.
Educational curriculums as we know it often discourage the use of new tools, simply because the learning goals do not support it. Thus there is a gap between what children are learning and what they are practicing.
How might we create an interactive learning experience which
caters to individual learning styles and needs; while fostering communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration among children.

Responses from 32 informal interviews led to us exploring the Future of Education...
What are some essential 'human' skills?
Being able to share thoughts and understand each other
Being able to analyze and take informed decisions
Being innovative and imaginative
Being able to work well with others
According to a report by the World Economic Forum
New jobs will be created by 2025 because of AI
Jobs will be replaced by machines with AI by 2025
So we asked the experts...
"How might we future-proof?"
“I’m not scared of being replaced by AI, I’m SCARED OF BEING OBSOLETE and not being able to have conversations or use AI tools for my work”
“Each wave of technology has PEOPLE WHO ARE AGAINST IT and don’t want to support it, even calculators did. Doesn’t mean we stop using it”
“How do we predict what CURRICULUM should be taught keeping in mind rapid advancements”
“Education is something that should LEAVE SOMETHING TANGIBLE over the years even when school is finished”
Middle school students, parents, and teachers
Formative years of children while in the phase of K-12
Introduce the 4Cs to help them future proof
Web based platform- tablet for students, phone for parents, laptop for teachers
Assist school students, parents, and teachers in various academic tasks
Using NLP and ML algorithms with conversational UI, as an addition to the existing curriculum
Say hi to KAI!
Each student can customize the look and feel of their own Kai, making it extremely personal and relatable to them.
"The children of today are the workforce of tomorrow"
So there is a need to create a learning experience that helps them focus and build on the 4Cs- skills that most industries prioritize.
Assist, don't replace
Focusing on the Socratic learning principles
Co-creating with AI
Thinking of AI as a tool rather than a competitor
Re-introducing concepts periodically
Focus on emotion
Encourage inspiration from the environment
Encouraging kids to learn by doing
The Goldilocks zone
Neither too less nor too much challenge
Who are the people most involved in this?
Built not just for students, but also for parents and teachers
The AI assistant should be
FRIENDLY for kids
