IISA 2023: Discovery Space partners from ICCS unveil a Conversational Digital Assistant for STEM Education

In the rapidly evolving landscape of educational technologies, artificial intelligence has emerged as a transformative force with the potential to revolutionize traditional learning methods. Within this spectrum, we had the honor to be part of the 14th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications (IISA 2023) which was held in the University of Thessaly, in Volos, Greece, at 10th-12th of July.

During IISA 2023, the Discovery Space researchers from ICCS ¬†unveiled their cutting-edge prototype, a Conversational Digital Assistant for STEM Education. The Discovery Space team members, Nikolaos Antonios Grammatikos, Evangelia Anagnostopoulou, Dimitris Apostolou, and Gregoris Mentzas, showcased an innovative AI-driven assistant designed to enhance the learning experience for students, with its initial application centered around the physics pendulum experiment. The presentation not only highlighted the prototype’s capabilities but also addressed ethical considerations, underlining the commitment to responsible AI deployment in education.
