As a community of researchers, we aim to explore the applications of AI language models in education. LLMs, also known as large language models, are a powerful type of artificial intelligence trained to comprehend massive repositories of texts & designed to mimic sophisticated human language patterns. We encourage interns to delve into research that applies LLMs in educational settings through interactive learning, personalized tutoring, automated grading, etcAfter learning how to navigate the 1Cademy platform, researchers should break down complex research articles, present them as digestible pieces of information, and communicate their findings with the larger community. Ultimately, the internship is designed to encourage independent inquiry, cultivate research skills like analyzing and interpreting data, and work towards advancing research.
One of the most important aspects of 1Cademy is its unique knowledge representation format. To become a researcher on 1Cademy, you should first engage in one of our ongoing research projects, as a participant. In the project, randomly chosen for you, we will test which type of knowledge representation format works better for your reading comprehension, short-term learning, and long-term learning. This will not only help us improve the design of 1Cademy, but along the way, you will get experience about how to use 1Cademy. For this purpose, you should create an account on our research website and specify your availabilities for three sessions with our UX researchers. In the first session, they will ask you to read two short passages and answer some questions about those passages. This will take an hour. The second and third sessions will be only for 30 minutes each and follow a similar format. Note that it is necessary to complete the second and third sessions, exactly three and seven days after the first session. So, please carefully specify your availability on our research website.
