Vision & Team

ProfessorBob.ai is a social enterprise whose mission is to actively contribute to today’s ongoing educational revolution. Supporting each learner throughout their lives and enabling them to advance at their own pace, all while improving teaching efficiency.

Our Vision

Like Mandela, we understand that “education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”. A process we believe will undergo further transformation throughout our suffering with COVID-19. Education will evolve at great speed in the next ten years, at least more so than the past 100, thanks to AI enabling knowledge, modeling, and personalized learning paths. At the forefront of this revolution, we are developing ProfessorBob.ai, a virtual teaching assistant that improves learning efficiency.

Today’s education systems are still largely based on the 19th century ‘industrial’ model of education: all students are forced to learn at the same speed, in the same way, in the same place, at the same time. Schools adopt an ‘assembly line’ approach, moving children from one class to another each year, largely regardless of whether they have learned what they have been taught. It’s a model that once made sense given the limitation of educational resources, namely the time and attention of someone who can teach, monitor, and assess students. But artificial intelligence can help us overcome these limitations. AI’s perception, recognition, and recommendation capabilities can be used to tailor the learning process to each student and free up time for teachers to focus on individual teaching
