Gradient Valley Launches Fully Integrated Data Science AI Tutor Mobile App for iOS and Android
Ann Arbor, MI - Gradient Valley announces the next level in data science tutoring apps, featuring a fully integrated AI tutor that participates in each lesson, providing feedback and information throughout users' data science learning process. Gradient Valley's mobile app 'DS Interviews', concentrates on helping data scientists to ace the interview process. The new AI Tutoring experience is available to all users of the app, on both iOS and Android, including the free version as part of the always-free Unit 1 section. The DS Interviews' apps are supplemental learning tools for data science professionals that utilize advanced artificial intelligence (AI), including OpenAI's ChatGPT 4.0 technology. These apps provide always-on AI-based tutoring services and in-depth topic coverage of the highly technical and challenging data science field. The apps have been updated with the new full AI Tutor integration and can be downloaded from their respective mobile stores:
Numerous research papers have been published, pointing to the efficacy of a strong online social presence being tied to improved learning outcomes. In the earliest days of online education, this topic was heavily researched and continues to be a focus, with overwhelming support for the strong links between online social presence and improved learning outcomes. In recent years, significant movement towards utilizing computers and mobile devices as primary learning tools has been accelerated by events such as the COVID-19 outbreaks and major disasters like hurricanes that can wipe out entire universities for months or longer. Gradient Valley is utilizing this concept in the mobile app space to help improve how learners gain the knowledge they need in today's competitive data science landscape. The following images show the significant interactivity between the user and the AI Tutor that helps make this a reality:
The 'DS Interviews' apps are first-of-their-kind mobile apps, utilizing the power of ChatGPT 4.0, and being the first apps to provide full-fledged AI-based tutoring integrated directly into the main functionality of the app. AI played a significant role in every stage of app development, from content generation to ongoing tutoring support. Gradient Valley combined ChatGPT4 with an internally developed, proprietary AI. The combination of the two AI platforms resulted in a full range of high-quality data science content that continues to expand and cover every possible aspect of data science. A team of moderators provides a final round of checks to ensure accuracy, as well as to rate and improve the quality of the output of Gradient Valley's AI models. Users of the 'DS Interviews' mobile apps can then use the Personal Lesson Planner feature to identify and focus on the topics that best meet their needs.
