It's interesting that technology has exploded in the last 20 years but education has remained the same blackboard and chalk lectures. A student from Michigan State University, Seth Killian has made this same observation and has decided to make a change. This idea has sparked the creation of a new company, Lingco Language Labs and Seth is the CEO and Founder. Lingco is an application that brings education to the next level using artificial intelligence. This next generation of education technology teaches students a new language in an efficient way.
Seth is a firm believer that we aren't using our technology to our advantage in every aspect of life including learning. Lingco uses artificial intelligence to understand each student's language learning patterns and curates a unique experience for you. The AI aggregates data from previous learner experience and can make predictions about what aspects of the language you may be struggling with as well as your strengths and weaknesses based on other data. This concept increases student performance and improves learning patterns. By just answering 30 questions, the AI can already make predictions of what you need to work on and how to help you achieve your goals.
The virtual classroom features a vast content library with engaging content at your disposal for every level of proficiency. Lingco also includes AI assisted grading that points out grammar and spelling errors, enabling you to receive quick and effective feedback.
But learning is only half the battle. The other major step in learning a language is to remember what you have been exposed to. Seth discusses how Lingco can model your memory and grab data to determine when you are likely to forget a word after you have been introduced to it.
