About this Project:

Our project addresses the issue of frequent student AI usage in education, such as doing homework or writing papers. One of the most popular AI apps that students turn to is ChatGPT. This is a problem because students are straying away from academic integrity in favor of quick and easy solutions. Using AI in schoolwork leads to a false perception of the student’s ability to complete tasks, plagiarism, and dependence on AI. This harms the student as they will never fully grasp the concepts taught to them if they use AI for answers. This will indefinitely harm not only the student, but even the teacher that is assessing their capabilities as they can not gauge the student’s true placement. However, AI has also been demonstrated to have positive effects on students, such as adaptive learning features, which can personalize and cater to each individual’s needs. That said, AI should not be fully taken away from students, but there should be limitations to how much AI is allowed. This leads us to our proposed prototype, Biblo, which is essentially like EdPuzzle or Deltamath, but would be adaptive to the student’s level of understanding in a specific topic.

We came up with Biblo because as students ourselves, we’ve seen our peers use and talk about ChatGPT. In fact, we’ve also been users of ChatGPT! However, we noted that abusing the AI system can have serious repercussions in academics, such as the risks of being caught plagiarizing. That’s why we came up with the basic idea of having AI in school to aid students who are struggling, but not hand the students free rein. Our idea evolved from an AI feedback chat bot extension to a system similar to homework apps like EdPuzzle and Deltamath which would have adaptive learning and help students through the usage of hints while actively providing feedback to teachers about the students’ progress. This would help the teacher determine the student’s placement and allow for them to understand what needs to be worked on to maximize their potential.

Our project prototype is as stated above, a learning platform, built through a coding system that teachers can assign questions on. There would be 3 levels of questions such as easy, medium, and hard. This allows for the questions to be customizable based on the needs of the particular student or the class in general. The questions would give students points, which would allow for a personalized skill level depending on the amount of points accumulated. The points system would hopefully motivate and engage students more while also providing tailored needs. In addition to the points system, there would also be 2 different levels of hints given out–one minor and one more direct. The hints would take off points but it would help guide the student who may be stuck on a problem. The system would also have a data storage for each student where questions and points would be recorded. The teacher can then check those records to note any improvements with the data graph and histograms that would accompany it. The system would also provide an equation for the line of best fit in order to try and predict future trends.

This is a wonderful idea and discussion amongst us all, the emerging AI rocket-ship, and your App digs deep into the fabric of our deepest concerns relating to this ground breaking innovation of AI positive benefits and it's negative impact on students work efficacy. I'm working closely with AI to combat bad Hackers (CyberCrimes), and I see a bigger problem, if we can't contained the evolution of AI from teaching itself to create robots rapidly, much faster done we can control the outburst.

👏 Digital Strategy Specialist at HP Inc. — Emoti-Con Judge
Hi, Team!
Congratulations on presenting this AI project and the extraordinary work you have done! You should be proud of the learning and growth you've achieved through this experience. Schools and individuals will thank you for addressing a popular global social problem which is the use and integration of ChatGPT into our daily activities. 😉👏🏼💻
Your research, approach and problem solving is fantastic and similar to reality. I enjoyed your technical demo and navigation through the models and their coding in GitHub, you are Coders, congrats! Your logo is super inspiring.
I encourage you to move forward and design an interface and digital solution to make your models work with real users in a user-friendly way. The potential of your models is unlimited and, as you know, the success of the AI is the training you give it, so keep doing it well by including real users (teachers and students) from your school and test as-is today and how it may evolve in the future based on user needs.
Another recommendation is to move from the technical demo to a pitch. I would recommend that you create a pitch video which is a powerful tool to promote and market your idea. 👀👍
For reference, you can consider the following pitch structure:
1. The Hook (10 seconds)
2. Introduce the Problem (30 seconds)
3. Problem In-depth (1 minute)
4. Your Technology (1 minute)
5. Feedback and Future (1 minute)
6. Wrap-up (30 seconds).
🏆 Keep up the amazing work and continue to shape one of the most popular topics around the world...the use of AI and ChatGPT 👏🏼 💻👏🏼

Whether we like it or not, AI will be a part of our everyday lives. I like how you are thinking about the future. Still, I would argue a perspective where you accept the inevitable and create something that utilizes AI to benefit us (and make it even more accessible) is more beneficial than fighting against it. You are correct that students will use AI to "cheat" and do their homework but I would also argue did that homework teach them something to begin with? If the student doesn't see value in it then they will find alternative means to do it. It's a very difficult dilemma but I love your creativity to tackle such a difficult topic
