AI Homework Analyzers

'Socratic' Uses Phone Images to Read Questions and Identify Key Concepts

— July 18, 2016 — Tech
Getting stumped on a homework question is demoralizing, and it doesn't take much for a kid to drop the homework and pick up their iPhone as a distraction, so the 'Socratic' homework analyzer app is trying to keep kids from straying. Far from simply answering the homework question, Socratic helps kids by identifying the relevant concepts at play and guiding them towards a better understanding.

The Socratic app uses the iPhone camera to take a picture of a homework question, then sends that question into their database where its AI compares it to others. The homework analyzer finally returns to the head-scratching kid with the information they need to know in order to solve the question, such as the most useful equation or the relevant historical event. Since the app is for kids, all the aspects of Socratic, including videos, definitions, explainers and the Q&A feature, are worded such that even a kid can understand them.

Socratic uses artificial intelligence to aid in the actual intelligence of ever-connected children.
