Consistency Through Technology
We are excited to announce we have teamed up with Fluence World, an A.I. technology company, to create an Artificial Intelligence based automatic text diagnostic tool. This tool is designed to automate the marking of the 'D1 Paragraph' diagnostic activity in the Communicate Intervention.
Why is it needed?
Up to now everyone marking the activities in a Communicate diagnostic has been human. Which is lovely as humans are wonderful creatures. But sadly we do struggle to be consistent. This is human nature.
Different people will have their own opinions about what is meant by fair or good control when it comes to marking the sentence construction or spelling. Our judgement can be affected by our mood that day or our sympathy for individual learners, causing us to subconsciously vary how we interpret the scoring from day to day.
The A.I. lacks this empathy and can be trained to interpret the scoring consistently each and every time it is called on. This means a B on spelling means the same for every learner, every day, in every service across the country. So eliminating a worry voiced by the staff we train at each training.
When will it be available?
We are approaching the stage where we need to beta test the system. This means we had done all our programming, training and testing of the A.I. Now we want you to test it out in the wide world.
We are looking for people who want to upload learner's texts and see if they agree with the A.I.'s scoring and actions it gives. Then give us feedback on what you think about it.
How do I get involved?
Simple, contact Paul on firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him you want to be a beta tester.
When we are ready to start he will send you the link to the A.I. and the instructions on how to use it.
After that, upload as many texts as you want, and leave feedback on the page about it.
Will I get a cute robot like the one in the photo?
Sadly no, our A.I. is cloud-based.
