Algorithms, Machine Learning and AI for Improving Literacy & How Can AI Determine Reading Abilities from Eye Movement Patterns?

While it is easy for most people to provide examples of AI technology, it may be far less simple to actually explain how AI technology works. Lexplore’s AI-based reading assessments use algorithms to determine a student’s reading ability. But just what are algorithms, and how can an AI-based tool be trained to understand the nuances of student reading ability?

In Part Three of AI – The Perfect Teacher’s Assistant, the educational technology professionals at Lexplore break down the term “algorithm” and explain how AI can be trained to determine a student’s reading ability through an analysis of eye movement patterns.
