Eve, the virtual math teacher
November 30th, 2007

New Zealand computer scientists have developed Eve, an affective tutoring system (ATS) which can adapt its response to the emotional state of children by interaction through a computer system. The researchers say their teaching system, dubbed ‘Easy with Eve,’ is the first of its type and add they ‘wanted to create a virtual teacher capable of reading and understanding body language and facial expressions to ensure that it has the attention of students.’ Today, Eve teaches mathematics, but this ‘robotic’ intelligent system could be adapted to other situations and become an important development in the $25 billion e-learning market.
