Indian EdTech giant, and most valuable startup, BYJU’S, has announced the launch of BYJU’S Wiz, a suite of three cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) transformer models—Badri, MathGPT, and TeacherGPT. According to the company, the new suite aims to reshape learning, providing students with personalized and compelling learning experiences.
The AI suite, which BYJU’S claims has a 90 per cent accuracy rate, can accurately predict a student’s knowledge state and identify misconceptions, learning gaps, or mistakes. Badri is a predictive AI model which leverages AI technology to pinpoint a student’s strengths and weaknesses at a granular level. Another model, MathGPT, employs advanced machine learning algorithms to provide highly accurate solutions for complex math challenges, including trigonometric proofs, a first in the industry. The other tool, TeacherGPT, is an AI-driven assistant that ensures students are guided toward the correct answer and offers personalized guidance.
Speaking about the latest development, Chief Innovation & Learning Officer of BYJU’S, Dev Roy, said:
Innovation is at the heart of BYJU’s approach to learning and teaching. We are thrilled to introduce these innovative models, which embody our commitment to becoming an AI-powered student-centric education company. We believe BYJU’SWIZ will usher in a new era of personalized learning, taking a significant leap forward in the way we educate our future generations. Its launch is a definitive event in our constant endeavour to teach students ‘what to learn’ and ‘how to learn’.”
The AI suite’s ability to accurately predict a student’s knowledge state, and identify misconceptions, learning gaps, or ‘silly’ mistakes, are a huge step forward in freeing learning from the constraints of space and time. Providing 24×7 hyper-personalized learning experiences tailored to each student’s unique needs anywhere in the world will make learning more engaging, effective, and enjoyable for students worldwide while optimizing internal systems such as teacher audits to improve offerings such as LIVE classes. The AI team at BYJU’S, working under the guidance of Dev Roy, has ensured that the AI suite is not just hyper-personalized but also safe, reliable, and curriculum-aligned.
These pioneering models are undergoing rigorous testing at BYJU’S Labs, equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and staffed by a dedicated team of researchers, data scientists, and educational experts. Given their unparalleled potential to effectively cater to diverse educational needs, they are set to be integrated across the entire product portfolio of BYJU’S, from Pre-K to Gray. This comprehensive integration will ensure that students of all ages can benefit from these models’ cutting-edge advancements and transformative impact throughout their learning journey.
In an interview, the co-founder of BYJU’S, Divya Gokulnath, said:
This is our secret weapon. We’ve made so much headway regarding research, development and training. This has been a global endeavour to leverage large language models, develop our own (models) and better how we help students learn.
The AI suite’s integration across BYJU’S learning platforms is a significant step forward in the company’s continued efforts to move education away from a one-size-fits-all approach and instead make it hyper-personalized and student-centric.
