Watson Tutor: a scalable dialog-based tutoring system

We present the Watson Tutor, an intelligent tutoring system designed to improve student outcomes and engagement. This system leverages AI software building on IBM's Watson platform and learning / content expertise from Pearson Education to allow students to seamlessly conduct a review with the Tutor embedded within digital courseware. The Tutor orchestrates multiple learning activities within a Socratic, natural language conversation conducted via chat.
