R&D on applying AI to Education
Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY USA



I lead an R&D team researching and building cognitive education solutions. The project I am mainly focused on is the Watson Tutor, a tutoring system that helps students gain mastery on a defined piece of content - say a textbook or manual.

Our first instantiation of the Watson Tutor is with Pearson Education. You can hear more about this work here, or read more about it here.

I am currently also a PhD student at the Computer Science department at Indiana University. My PhD advisor is Beth Plale.
