  • Machine learning has typically focused on developing models and algorithms that would ultimately replace humans at tasks where intelligence is required. In this work, rather than replacing humans, we focus on unveiling the potential of machine learning to improve how people learn and remember factual material. To this end, we perform a large-scale randomized controlled trial with thousands of learners from a popular learning app in the area of mobility. After controlling for the length and… CONTINUE READING
