My tutor is AI: UF researchers seek out if AI tutors as effective as human ones

University of Florida

Artificial Intelligence is now being used to help tutor students at all educational levels. AI tutors can enhance learning outcomes such as facilitating various teaching-learning practices within and outside the classroom, supporting students 24/7, and providing students from economically disadvantaged areas access to all kinds of learning materials without being in the same geographical location.

Yet, despite the now somewhat ubiquitous nature of AI tutoring, many students, teachers, and parents are skeptical of their efficacy. The belief is that human tutors are more effective, in particular, at helping students with language learning, such as creating writing and language conversation.
