Past Projects

AURA

Automated User-Centered Reasoning and Acquisition System

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.

SAVE

Semantically Enabled Assessment in Virtual Environments (SAVE)

The SAVE framework supports training in virtual environments through automated assessment of learner performance and tools for content authoring.
