Training and Education

Training and tutoring require expertise in the domain being taught, in information presentation, and in user modeling.  Cyc's rich (and extensible) domain models provide a basis for creating dynamic course material (such a ebooks customized for individual students) and intelligent tutoring course curricula.  Using Cyc to model a student's (changing) understanding of the course material, as well as learning styles and interaction preferences, one can construct highly flexible and customized personal tutors.  These systems can not only answer questions about the domain, but can also generate and suggest questions or presentation questions appropriate for a particular student at a particular time.
