This article describes Amy, "an AI-driven, robotic math tutor.... so far, Amy prototype has been trialled in 10 different high schools across New Zealand" (of course, everything is 'AI xdriven' thesde days - web services, coffee makers, shampoo...). The idea i that Amy examines student work and identifies where tghey made theifr mistake. It then punishes them instructs them in that specific topic. But of course, teachers will still have jobs. "I think we will see humans and AI working in symbiotic relationships, where they are able to provide something much better together than either could do on their own," says Raphael Nolden, co-founder and CEO of Osnova.
