Abstract

Inquire: Biology, is a novel electronic textbook that runs on an iPad and embeds in it a rich Biology knowledge base and reasoning system. As a student reads the textbook using Inquire, he or she may ask it questions about aspects of the material that are difficult to understand. Inquire can provide answers to these questions as well as pose questions to the student as an aid in reviewing the material and deepening the understanding of the subject.

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.
