Have you ever wanted to learn from a robot? Did you ever consider what it might be like to learn from a robot tutor? 🤖

As many college and graduate students doing distance learning during COVID-19 can tell you, tutor bots are a real thing.

My guest, Emiliano De Laurentiis, is the founder of a VR, AI edtech platform called Knowledge Avatars. Users can ask a human-looking, cartoonlike character -- a bot -- questions about the material and receive answers in realtime from the bot as if they are having a face-to-face conversation with a real-life tutor.

The Knowledge Avatars platform allows experts and teachers to feed the bots knowledge. No programming knowledge is necessary as the platform makes it easy for educators to simply upload their existing video lectures or content into the bot with the push of a button. As time goes on, the bot becomes smarter and learns how to best interact with the student. Knowledge Avatars also has a revenue-sharing feature that enables educators to monetize their bots and make them widely available to other users on the platform besides their own students.
