Victory’s spinoff metacog has been busy adding new features and functionalities. When companies look to incorporate metacog into their digital products, they want to know two things:
- How does metacog work?
- What can metacog help me do now that I couldn’t do before?
The answers to both questions lie in our unique approach to guided deep learning: machine learning steered by an understanding of real student outcomes.
In education, deep learning is different from deeper learning, which is a pedagogical approach to instruction. In the world of Big Data, deep learning is an artificial intelligence (AI) approach that creates neural networks in which each “neuron” is a computer processor. This structure mimics how the human brain works in parallel processing.
Deep learning can be very effective, but it has a drawback: neural networks are so complex that we can’t know how they arrive at certain decisions. Continue reading
