IRIS - Towards AI-driven Interactive Learning
6 Jul 2023 • Patrick Bassner

The future of learning is taking shape and Artemis is at the heart of this transformation. We are delighted to announce the development of an intelligent virtual tutor IRIS which is based on Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs). We currently develop IRIS as part of the practical course Interactive Learning and integrate it into Artemis. IRIS will support students in solving (programming) tasks. With the introduction of IRIS, we aim to provide effective one-on-one assistance at any time without the need for human tutors’ interaction to support students in their learning process.
