Remote testing techniques with artificial intelligence
Through Better Examinations technology, which allowed tens of thousands of students in different places to take exams remotely at the same time.
This requires each student a computer, a webcam and an internet connection, and the company uses the ML program, which relies on artificial intelligence, to discover patterns of behavior for the student, such as attempting to cheat, and verifying the identity of each student in order to ensure that no one is subject to the test on behalf of the student, and the program restricts access. To the Internet and certain programs on the computer until the test is completed.
"We had 60 organizations from all over the world contacting us immediately, who wanted to take the tests online in May and June," the company said. "These organizations are universities, vocational institutes and schools," she added.
With the company's headquarters in Dublin, as well as offices in the United States, Australia and Poland, the technology uses the Amazon Web Services cloud computing system that is characterized by absolutely quality cloud computing services to allow everything to work online.
The company notes that five governments have contacted them directly and have been eager to go ahead with school exams.
These tests are just one example of the increased use of machine learning in response to this year's pandemic, as technology is being used to do much faster than humans, like correcting exam papers.
But what exactly is machine learning technology? It is a method of data analysis, in which computer algorithms are used to rapidly process massive amounts of data.
The use of machine learning is expected to grow dramatically over the next four years as its estimated global economic value is expected to rise from $ 7.3 billion (£ 5.7 billion) this year to $ 30.6 billion in 2024, according to one study.
