Cognitive modeling and its application in wisdom education

In many fields such as games, sports and education, how to automatically model and track participants (such as game players, athletes, students) to master the level of specific skills is a basic research problem, for intelligent matching and recommendation, automatic team, adaptive learning and other intelligent services have important application value. However, most existing theory and cognitive diagnosis model based on psychology and statistics, although the modeling process and diagnosis results have good interpretability, but used by function fitting ability is limited, and has the strong constraints of the data format (for example, can't deal with text, images and other data), limiting the scope of its application and promotion. Taking education as an example, this report will introduce the machine learning model for cognitive diagnosis and knowledge tracking of students from large-scale heterogeneous learning data, as well as the adaptive learning path recommendation method based on learner cognitive structure.

Data-Driven Intelligence: Challenges and our Solutions

Data-Driven Intelligence has become a hot research topic in the area of information science. This talk firstly outlines the challenges on Data-Driven Intelligence. Then our recent solutions for Data-Driven Intelligence are provided, which cover the following aspects: 1) A hierarchical entropy-based approach is demonstrated to evaluate the effectiveness of data collection, the first step of Data-Driven Intelligence; 2) A multi-view-based method is illustrated for filling missing data, the preprocessing step for Data-Driven Intelligence; 3) A unified framework is outlined for Parallel Large-scale Feature Selection to manage Big Data with high dimension; 4) A MapReduce-based parallel method together with three parallel strategies are presented to compute rough set approximations for classification, which is a fundamental part in rough set-based data analysis, similar to frequent pattern mining in association rules; 5) Incremental learning-based approaches are shown for updating approximations and knowledge in dynamic data environments, e.g., the variation of objects, attributes or attribute values, which improve the computational efficiency by using previously acquired learning results to facilitate knowledge maintenance without re-implementing the original data mining algorithm; 6) Deep-learning-based models to fuse multiple different sources of data are developed; 7) Several typical applications on natural language processing, high speed train and urban computing, etc. are shown.

Strategies for the Construction of "Golden Course"

Education and teaching is the basic function of colleges and universities. The main position of education and teaching is classroom teaching. Classroom teaching directly affects the quality of personnel training. The growth of students calls for ¡°Golden Course¡±. The spirit of relevant documents of the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China clearly proposes to eliminate ¡°Water Course¡± and build "Golden Course". This report puts forward that "the construction of the ¡®Golden Course¡¯ can be done by everyone", and the computer course is taken as an example to introduce the construction path and method of the five categories of "Golden Course ".

Toward Predict the Student Grade with Decision Tree Algorithm

With the rapid development of online open courses, it has become a hot issue in educational research to use learning analysis technology to explore online learning characteristics and provide support for the improvement of teaching methods and academic warning. A grade prediction model based on decision tree algorithm according to students' previous learning behavior is designed in this talk. Firstly, ID3, C4.5 and CART classification algorithm are used to construct the initial grade prediction model for the pre-processed learning behavior data set. Secondly, in order to prevent over-fitting, pruning set is used to conduct pruning on the initial grade prediction model. Finally, the performance of three grade prediction models is evaluated by test data set. Experimental results indicate that the grade prediction model constructed by ID3 algorithm has better performance than that constructed by other two algorithms.
