Let's focus on this: "Goel envisions creating an AI program that could adjust itself to students' individual needs in a couple of hours, rather than one-size-fits-all approaches that have been deployed in the past." So, a couple of things. First, this is more than simply adapting to a student's needs; it requires a dialogue and interaction and is ongoing, not finished in 'a couple of hours', so the computer is not telling them what they need, but working with them. And second, students' individual needs encompass much more than mere content recommendation; it includes adapting to learning preferences, supporting creative activities, preparing and authoring content, offering conversational prompts to stimulate thinking, and more.
