Although it might seem distant from artificial intelligence to biology, what AI can do to supplement the analysis of pure science such as biology is in fact astounding. For instance, by modelling the DNA sequence as a string with possible structure, one can analyze DNA and perform abundant of experiments faster with more accuracy.
Examples of our work include bio-computing, structure prediction, NMR, and biology database.
- Intelligent Tutoring Agent The rapid growth of the Internet and Instant Messaging (IM) offers new opportunities as well as challenges to both educators and students. We propose an Intelligent Tutoring Agent (ITA) that uses the ontology, INFOMAP, and question answering techniques through the Instant Messaging platform for the “operating system” course. The ITA embeds the above techniques in the teaching process and plays the role of a tutoring agent to help a teacher track, record, and understand a student’s status. The ITA interface can interpret natural language to facilitate communication between the student and the tutor. Student can query and learn the concept of “operating system” through MSN Messenger, which ITA adopts as the communication protocol. The proposed ITA is accessible by adding the contact ID: email@example.com to the MSN Messenger contacts list.
