El Segundo High School students pilot AI-based tutoring system developed by Raytheon

For the past year, El Segundo High School physics students have piloted a new artificial intelligence-based tutoring system developed by The Raytheon Co. Running on computers and tablets, the BBN Learning Platform walks students through complex problems, measuring how long they take to solve them, identifying where they get stuck and providing feedback in real-time. The system developed by BBN Technologies, a Cambridge, Massachusetts, research firm acquired by Raytheon in 2009, gives teachers a better understanding of each student’s learning strengths and weaknesses. On Wednesday, Raytheon will make the Web-based platform available to schools across the country for free. Steve Eno, a physics teacher at El Segundo High School, said his students use the system regularly to practice complex concepts taught in class. “A lot of students get stuck and…
