Subtitled: "CLASS Meet SPOCK: An Education Tutoring Chatbot based on Learning Science Principles." As the paper (21 page PDF) reports, "To train the chatbot, we create a synthetic dataset of mock conversations between a student and a tutor based on learning science principles like scaffolding. We employed a specialized prompt to generate these mock conversations using OpenAI's GPT-4 APIs." Interesting experiment? Absolutely. Should it be used at this stage of development? Don't be foolish.
