[on behalf of Neil Heffernan]
I’d like to invite you to attend an AAAI workshop
am co-hosting that is related to AI in Education–with an accompanying
data-mining competition. Last I checked, over 300 people have already
registered so it will be a “buzzy” event. I have hosted a few competitions
in the past, but there is nothing like offering a $100,000 prize to get
folks interested (we have over 3,000 Kaggle participants!)
a korean company gave out this huge data set and sponsored the prize. The
competition to see who could do a good job of predicting the next problem
correctness of students.
This workshop should be interesting! We have a great set of panels, in
addition to talks. I asked some folks who have used ASSISTments data
<https://sites.google.com/site/assistmentsstudies/useourdata> before their
paper to write papers applying their past method to this biggest data
ever. So some normal EDMers like *Phi Pavlik* (inventor of PFA) and* Benoît
Choffin* (best paper at EDM 2019) will be talking about what they learned.
I will lead an impromptu panel discussion that I bet will be very lively!
Another featured panel will focus on funding, and I will be asking some
questions that I hope many will want answered. Panelists will include *Mark
Schneider*, the head of the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute for
Educational Sciences; *Amy Baylor*, the NSF program officer who oversees
the AI Institute grants; as well as representatives from the philanthropic
organizations *Schmidt Futures* and *The Gates Foundation*.
I hope you can join us! You can register here
and the Zoom link is here <https://zoom.us/j/2573203947>.
