New algorithm aims to understand students’ individual learning abilitiesThe team used deep learning to train the program on student capabilitiesSoftware predicts whether or not students will answer questions correctly By Cheyenne Macdonald For Dailymail.com Published: 16:52, 31 December 2015 | Updated: 16:53, 31 December 2015 Virtual learning programs could soon mark the end of test-taking.Researchers from Stanford University and Google in California have developed a new algorithm that aims to understand students’ individual learning abilities.The system can even predict whether the students will get questions right or wrong in a given exercise, and as development progresses, it may be also able to identify why they’ve chosen that way. Virtual learning programs could soon mark the end of test-taking. Researchers from Stanford University and Google in California have developed a new algorithm…
