Artificial Intelligence in Education 2013 Workshop on GIFT

Call for Papers: ARL will be conducting a GIFT workshop on 13 July at the AI in Education (AIED) Conference in Memphis and we want to hear about how you are using GIFT and your recommendations for making GIFT more useful to the Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) community.  See attached Call for Papers for more information.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together members of the AIED community for an in-depth exploration of ARL’s effort to develop tools, methods, and standards for Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) as part of their Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) research project. GIFT is a modular, service-oriented architecture whose goal is to address authoring, instructional strategies, and analysis constraints currently limiting the use and reuse of ITS today. GIFT has three primary objectives: (1) provide an authoring capability to develop new ITS and their components (e.g., learner models, pedagogical models, user interfaces, sensor interfaces), and standards to support the reuse of existing ITS components and leverage external training environments (e.g., serious games - Sottilare and Gilbert, 2011); (2) provide an instructional manager that encompasses best tutoring principles, strategies, and tactics for use in computer-based tutoring systems (CBTS); and (3) an experimental testbed to analyze the effectiveness and impact of CBTS components, tools, and methods.
