Cognii Virtual Learning Assistant is an Artiﬁcial Intelligence-based assessment and tutoring system which forms part of Cognii’s mission to improve the quality and affordability of education through advanced technologies. Cognii’s Virtual Learning Assistant uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology and is part of a new breed of Artiﬁcial Intelligent (AI) products such as Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, Google Now and IBM Watson. However, Cognii is the only company that is exclusively focused on applying the most advanced AI research to improve education. With Cognii, open-response questions become practical: AI technology provides instant scoring, one-to-one tutoring, and formative assessment that engages students in a conversation until they master important concepts. This type of tutoring is known to improve students’ learning by two standard deviations, as demonstrated by Benjamin Bloom in 1984. Cognii’s research suggests this is a scalable solution that can facilitate students learn any topic, anywhere, anytime. Cognii has demonstrated this by deploying its solution to students at some of the most prominent universities and community colleges with a satisfaction rating above 95%. The students and teachers have found Cognii “very helpful”, as well as being “the most innovative” ed-tech product they have used.
