Use Case: Information Overload for Students
Target Audience: Educators and students in Bachelors, Masters, or Doctorate schools.
The Challenge: Information Retrieval and Finding Deeper Insights
Students in undergraduate schools or higher spend a lot of time reading, researching, analyzing, and compiling the information they need to complete their schoolwork. Nearly 90% of the data they scour is unstructured, textual or conversation, data and students on average can read roughly 250-300 words per minute. Most of their time is spent finding the right information and not enough time is dedicated for deeper analysis and critical thinking.
Global data has grown over 470% in the last 5 years, from 9.3 zettabytes in 2015 to 44 zettabytes in 2020. Too much data can overload the brain quickly, which leads to high levels of stress for students and educators. Analyzing data manually is slow, subjective, and incomplete.
Educators use Pluaris to assist students in sorting through massive volumes of data to gain deeper insights, faster for students. With the power of AI, Educators create a repository of research documents, publications, journals, digital libraries, and reference materials which can be integrated with platforms like Udemy, Blackboard, Lexis Nexis, and others. Students access the knowledge bank within Pluaris for smart information retrieval reducing the time needed to find relevant information. Students are able to work individually or with their peers in the platform to share notes, write papers, create presentations, and complete assignments. Pluaris helps educators enhance student’s problem solving and data analytical skills, preparing them to solve real-world data management and work-life balance issues.
As a reference, Paul Allen Institute issued a challenge for AI stalwarts to answer preset questions using machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) techniques. This challenge was staged when the entire world was on lockdown due to COVID-19. The video shows the result of uploading over 9,000 documents to Pluaris, then being able to extract intelligence by answering a few of the questions posed by the Paul Allen Institute. As an example, Educators can replace the COVID-19 database with one of their own and allow students to use the tool to analyze massive amounts of information for deeper insights and less stress.
