Hexagons! And other reasons to love math

“The most complex AI and the ”“new hype”“ is Deep Learning (DL): artificial neuronal networks with non-supervised algorithms that can learn from observation of huge amounts of data. This is how AlphaGo became the world best GO player in hours with just the rules of the game.
If we apply DL to education, we would be able to:
- provide automatic answers to questions that need some context to be understood.
- optimize pedagogic activities
- auto-generate exercises
- improve the analysis of the knowledge before and after training/education
- improve the recommendations for learning itineraries in order to develop competencies”
