Knowledge Engineering Paradigms in Smart Digital Learning

Presented by: Prof Dr Abdel-Badeeh M. Salem, Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt

ECEL 2020 Knowledge Engineering Paradigms in Smart Digital Learning

The convergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and web science is enabling the creation of a new generation of web-based smart systems for many educational and learning tasks. Knowledge engineering paradigms (KEPs) refer to the development of intelligent systems whereby reasoning and knowledge play a pivotal role. There are many approaches to reasoning including automated, spatial, temporal, commonsense, fuzzy, geometric, non-monotonic reasoning, model-based reasoning, probabilistic, causal reasoning, qualitative reasoning, and case-based reasoning. There are also many techniques for representing both static and heuristic knowledge, including semantic networks, scripts, If-then rules, ontology and cases. KEPs are receiving increasing attention within the fields of education and learning as researchers have been applying knowledge engineering (KE) techniques and methodologies to develop smart tutoring and learning systems.

The workshop will include the following topics:

  • An introduction to AI
    • Interdisciplinary Science of Artificial Intelligence
    • AI Areas of Research
    • Cognitive Informatics and Computing
  • An introduction to Knowledge Engineering and Reasoning methodologies
  • Applying an Intelligent Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery Approach
  • Examples of how artificial intelligence (AI) can be applied in education
    • Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS)
    • Intelligent e-learning Systems
    • Intelligent Technologies for e-Learning
    • Smart Machines in Education/Robotic-based Education

PLEASE NOTE PARTICIPANTS WILL NEED TO BRING A LAPTOP OR TABLET TO USE AT THIS WORKSHOP
