Artificial intelligence (AI) simulates human intelligence in machines, aiming to replicate human thought and behavior. It spans domains like robotics, language recognition, and expert systems. Evolving over time, it finds applications in education, media, and natural language processing.
While not human, AI can mimic and potentially surpass human cognitive abilities. It aids education through personalized learning and assessment, enhances media with content recommendations and intelligent editing, and streamlines workflows in natural language processing through tasks like speech recognition and text generation.
hihilulu is an online education platform tailored for young children learning the Chinese language. By integrating artificial intelligence (AI) into its extensive content library, incorporating various media and natural language processing, hihilulu plans on enhancing its offerings in several ways:
- Content enrichment: AI extracts video content, summarizes it, and generates popular keywords (pan-tags) for precise video classification, enabling accurate video recommendations aligned with users’ learning progress.
- AI speech assessment: By analyzing a child’s audio, AI evaluates pronunciation, sentence structure, and comprehension, correcting pronunciation and refining grammar skills.
- AI voice dialogue: Simulating real-life scenarios, AI engages children in dialogues, aiding in learning common phrases and grammar concepts, forming complex sentences, and improving conversational skills.
- Personalized teaching: AI creates tailored one-on-one tutoring environments by generating virtual images based on students’ learning status and needs. It also generates related graphic content for post-class exercises, enhancing engagement and teaching quality.
