Our vision

Professor Bob, your Personal Virtual Assistant,
is able to teach, answer & ask you questions in a very personalized way.

Why education needs to be reshaped and how AI can support this ?

“Present-day education systems are still largely run on the  nineteenth-century ‘factory model” of education: all students are forced to  learn  at  the same speed, in the same way, at the same  place, and at the same time. Schools take an ‘assembly line” approach, passing children from grade  to grade each  year, largely  irrespective  of whether or not they absorbed what was  taught. It’s  a model that once made sense given the severe limitations on teaching resources, namely, the time and attention of someone who  can teach, monitor, and evaluate students. But AI can help us lift those limitations. The perception, recognition, and recommendation abilities of AI can tailor the  learning process to each student and also free up teachers for more one-on-one instruction time.”

Learners progress in learning at various paces,  some need trainer support to fully grasp new knowledge, or twice the time of an average learner. While others can learn far faster depending on preexisting knowledge, its presentation and the learner. Why keep the same pace and pedagogy for everyone?

Adaptive Learning  & Personalisation 

Thanks to AI and custom algorithms, Professor Bob can quickly deploy teaching personalization. 

Each learner’s pace and success rate is analyzed to leapfrog the learner in the learning path directly to more advanced activities, or, the opposite, let him progress more smoothly on each knowledge concept or even move back to prerequisites. To support adaptive learning and precisely monitor each learner’s progress, we have to map beforehand how knowledge concepts and content pieces interrelate together.

Adaptive learning frees trainers so that they can spend more time answering complex questions or provide specific in-depth support to in-need learners.

Memory Anchoring: ensure persistence of knowledge for each learner

Learners generally retain only 30% of the information learned … after only 24 hours. The obvious solution is time repetition for each learner depending on his ease with the concerned knowledge.

With Gutenberg Technology & ProfessorBob.ai, accelerate your content publishing workflow by a factor of 4

Publishing content is a very heavy process. Higher Education Textbooks typically require 12 to 24 months before being commercialized.

ProfessorBob signed a partnership with the fastest authoring workflow solution for educational content in the world : Gutenberg Technology  SAS platform.

Gutenberg Technology has developed a unique technology to extract content from PDFs, and co-developed with ProfessorBob.ai an AI-based technology to generate quizzes from the source content in PDF format.
