What I Did

  • Design Thinking & Ideation

  • Research


How do students know what they miss when they get distracted in class? How do teachers know what material students are engaging with? How do we encourage students to work together and stay engaged in the classroom? These questions can be answered with EDI, a concept for a conversational AI system paired with an attention-tracking wearable.

The Presentation




Collect complex data, then humanize it.

Why use a virtual assistant to solve this problem? Education is done best by people, but bots are good with data. A conversational interface brings the “human” element back. EDI encourages more human interaction, and shares data the same way a friend would.
