Pearson announces collaboration with IBM

 

26 October 2016

Pearson is excited to announce a new partnership with IBM, which combines Pearson's education expertise and insights with IBM's cognitive computing technology, Watson, to deliver a digital learning experience for college students.


Watson is a virtual tutor that adapts to the needs of individuals, 'learning' from each interaction to engage in conversation with more natural language.


By asking and answering questions and coaching students on key concepts, the tutor will help students get 'unstuck' when they're studying and come to class better prepared. Instructors will get better data and insights about when and where their students are struggling.


The importance of personalised learning will only continue to grow and advancement in artificial intelligence is developing at a breakneck pace.
