The Department Of Education Issues Recommendations For How Educators Should Approach The Use Of AI – Benzinga Dives Deeper With EdTech CEO
By David Willey, Benzinga
Dr. Ann Marie Sastry, CEO of Amesite, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMST), recently appeared on Benzinga’s All Access Live, a live show where Benzinga highlights companies and leaders who are transforming their industry.
Amesite is an eLearning platform and content provider powered by artificial intelligence (AI). The company is looking to revolutionize the traditional educational experience and harness the power of AI for the next generation of learners.
Amesite has had an AI-first approach from its inception, and Dr. Sastry spoke about how this “build-to-integrate” approach has given the company both philosophical and technical advantages in the market. The company sees that the world is moving rapidly toward the integration of AI across all sectors, and it believes that this is creating a need for services that make AI readily available and part of daily life. Also, on a very practical level, Dr. Sastry believes companies that don’t adopt AI will quickly become obsolete and be left behind in the fast-changing economic environment.
Amesite is addressing this need both by integrating AI technology into its platform and by educating its users in AI competence. One way it is doing this is by offering a free course on the fundamentals of ChatGPT.
Amesite’s AI-First Framework
In fact, Amesite moved early to integrate language learning model (LLM) technology, and it recently announced the launch of its Version 6.3 (V6) platform, which incorporates GPT4 technology.
This means that courses hosted on Amesite’s platform take advantage of cutting-edge AI features to provide a premium Learning Management System (LMS). Dr. Sastry explained how with Amesite, people can harness AI to answer questions and create content, enabling the delivery of mass customized, deeply engaging learning experiences. Dr. Sastry credits their provision of AI solutions as one of the reasons why Amesite delivers a high retention rate of 99% for learners on its platform.
Dr. Sastry highlighted Amesite’s GPT-4 powered AI bot, which is available 24/7 to provide learners with support and answers to their questions. The platform also has a feature that allows for contextualized information. That means courses on popular topics will include a sidebar populated with current news stories to complement the course material with up-to-date sources.
These features, and Amesite’s approach, make it an increasingly popular choice for organizations looking to leverage AI. “The world is moving very fast,” said Dr. Sastry. “You have to have the infrastructure and the mindset. We are an AI-first company, we have been thinking about this for a long time, and we’re integrating it very rapidly.” Amesite recently published a free integration white paper that can be downloaded by the public here.
The Need For An AI-Powered Learning System
The interview occurred following the Department of Education issuing recommendations for how educators should approach the use of AI in a learning environment. A survey of 1,000 college students found that more than 60% had used ChatGPT for help with homework, and a third had used it on a written assignment.
This means that it is important to integrate ChatGPT and other AI tools into the classroom, not only to provide learning benefits but because it is crucial for helping students approach technology in a controlled and supportive environment.
This is what Amesite is looking to do through its premium platform and eLearning service. Amesite has already worked with numerous institutions, including universities, museums, and corporations, to deliver important educational and upskilling training.
Amesite Inc., an artificial intelligence driven platform and course designer, provides online products in the United States. The company uses machine learning to offer a mass customized experience to learners. Its customers include businesses, universities and colleges, K-12 schools, and non-profit organizations. The company was incorporated in 2017 and is headquartered in Detroit, Michigan.
