The goal of this project is to build a generic knowledge acquisition capability for Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Using the system, the scientists will be able to formulate their knowledge in the three science domains, and the high school students will be able to pose Advanced-Placement style questions and get user appropriate explanations.
RADAR helps relieve email overload by identifying and helping to carry out tasks implied by received messages.
The AURA system enables graduate students in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology to author knowledge from a science textbook, and support high school students to formulate questions against that knowledge to obtain answers.
The following are in reverse chronological order of publication.
