“ETRI’s AI for making a better tomorrow” Episode 2 – AI-based Language Learning Technology
In this episode of AI for Good Perspectives, key experts from ETRI introduce an artificially intelligent language tutor that can listen, talk and teach based on educational contents. They will discuss how high-performing speech recognition and dialogue processing technologies allow the AI tutor to effectively achieve its goals.
IN THIS EPISODE, WE WILL DISCUSS…
(1) Speech recognition technologies enable Listening: The AI tutor recognizes non-native English spontaneous speech “as is” with grammatical and idiomatic errors, provides feedback on the pronunciation and fluency.
(2) Dialogue processing technologies enable Talking: The AI tutor handles on-topic conversations with task-oriented dialog technology, and covers off-topic conversations with a hybrid open domain dialogue technology. It also gives feedbacks with grammar checking and error correction, and suggests proper expression for student’s reference.
This AI for Good Perspectives episode is part the “ETRI’s AI for making a better tomorrow” series.

JIN-XIA HUANGSenior ResearcherETRIAs a senior researcher at ETRI, Dr. Jin-Xia Huang has been involved in projects such as machine translation and dialogue for language learning since she joined ETRI in 2008. The dialogue system and machine translation systems she participated in the development have been technical transferred to several companies and are being used in practice. Her current research focuses mainly on dialogue system which based on reading comprehension for language learning.
