781 million adults over the age of 15 are estimated to be illiterate according to the World's Women 2015 report prepared by Ionica Berevoescu from the UN statistics division in the Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
"Nearly two thirds of them are women, a proportion that has remained unchanged for two decades. Illiteracy rates are highest among older people and are higher among women than men. At age 65 and over, 30 per cent of women and 19 per cent of men are illiterate." See https://unstats.un.org/unsd/gender/chapter3/chapter3.html
Impact of Educational AI:
This goal of this project is to develop an educational artificial intelligence for use in the classroom and at home as a teacher’s assistant, stand-alone learning application, or 1-on-1 student tutor.
We've been testing the concept with educators from three NYC schools and the results are positive.
