Meet Professor Bob.

Your new virtual
teaching assistant.

He’s about to dramatically accelerate
your access to knowledge.

So, who is Professor Bob?

Professor Bob can answer 80% of your questions on any knowledge domain.

Our AI powered conversational agent supports our clients in implementing various pedagogical formats. Whether that is an adaptation of blended learning as a first step to digitalization, a full transition to a 100%-online format, or humanizing an already established e-learning platform.

Indeed, Professor Bob is fluent in natural language. He answers 80% of users’ questions; with the remaining 20% covered by a qualified teacher.

Professor Bob teaches, asks and answers questions. He can address all aspects of any given educational field, while supporting various languages.

With Professor Bob, users get instant access to relevant knowledge.They will never feel alone when learning online!

Professor Bob is super smart.

Professor Bob is far from being your ”typical” assistant. He is a true conversational agent powered by artificial intelligence and cognitive science.

Professor Bob is based on the latest Natural Language Processing advances. He is exploiting the breakthrough that occurred in late 2019, when algorithms reached, for the first time ever, higher scores than humans on Q&A sets (Bert & Cie).

Thanks to its unique technology, Professor Bob received the prestigious “FrenchTechSeed “ label . He can easily adapt to a large corpora of different subjects, unlike the old decision-trees based chatbot generation. The implementation of ProfessorBob can be as promptly as 2 weeks.

Why is ProfessorBob disruptive?

 

Keeps your users busy

Professor Bob asks users questions based on their previous courses and/or ongoing courses, by popping quizzes during a defined time interval. As a means of attention retention and/or according to cognitive science through the use of spaced repetition, Faded Problem Solving and/or Interleaved Learning methodologies for memory anchoring.

 

Gives “learning” a sprinkle of flavor

Professor Bob gamifies the content and rewards the users based on performance to boost users’ morale and keeps track of evolution.Other adaptive learning and proactive assistance scenarios can be implemented, depending on your needs.

 

Goes the extra mile

Our virtual teaching assistant delivers an incomparable added-value for users while reducing costs by 5 to 20 and boosting completion rates in percentages ranging from 20 to 50.

Homogenizes the learners’ level

Professor Bob is the product of our cutting edge technology as well as our expertise and understanding of education and the new pedagogical shift.

As a DeepTech/ Edtech, we understand users learn differently, and therefore we have alternated the tools and learning situations, in order to meet the specific needs of each learner.

Personalizes the learning path

By considering learners’ previous path, Professor Bob customizes the content and walks users through personalized steps to optimally reach the end pedagogical goal.

ProfessorBob ensures discipline-specific remedial work towards prerequisite knowledge or alternative learning pedagogies.

For Education & Professional Training

ProfessorBob.ai brings, 24/7, instantaneous concise answers with the option to further explore more of the topic through related questions and complementary links towards other reliable resources.

For Knowledge Search & Access in Natural Language

Organizations accumulate large amounts of expert knowledge that is spread across numerous documents and systems, and that often become obsolete. Professor Bob delivers instant information and keeps knowledge up to date.

Our cutting-edge technology

Thanks to AI Deep Learning, and the latest Natural Language Processing (NLP) advances, ProfessorBob is trained on any domain knowledge, using customer proprietary knowledge or trainings, and optionally complemented by specialized books and online open knowledge.

Our AI virtual assistant was conceived to generate vast amounts of “most asked questions” in the trained domain, followed by the generation of valid answers to create accurate and concise Q&A couples.

 

We uniquely combine powerful & massive search engine technologies with precise NLP models to extract the most relevant knowledge from a vast corpus of content.

Our algorithms include SOTA NLP open-source models that are fine-tuned for our specific application.

ProfessorBob continuously learns by enriching its database, exploiting new answers from customer experts and by regularly launching new focused training on weak spots.

They trust us.

Our unique team.

Our R&D team has uniquely valuable Data Science expertise, particularly in Natural Language Processing. They ensure BOB is always performing beyond expectations.
