BYJU’S, the leading edtech major, has recently launched BYJU’S WIZ, an innovative suite of three artificial intelligence (AI) transformer models. This move aims to revolutionise the learning experience for students by providing personalised and effective educational content. The suite comprises BADRI, MathGPT, and TeacherGPT, each designed to cater to specific learning needs.
BYJU’S WIZ: Transforming Learning with AI
In an official statement, BYJU’S highlighted that the introduction of BYJU’S WIZ will reshape the landscape of education, offering students tailor-made learning experiences. The company emphasises its commitment to leveraging technology, particularly AI, to drive innovation and enhance the learning journey.
Meet the AI Models: BADRI, MathGPT, and TeacherGPT
BYJU’S WIZ includes three powerful AI models: BADRI, MathGPT, and TeacherGPT.
BADRI, an advanced predictive AI model developed in-house, analyses student interactions on the platform. It utilises transformer technology similar to language learning models (LLMs) like ChatGPT and employs personalised forgetting curves to identify individual strengths and weaknesses.
MathGPT, another component of BYJU’S WIZ, harnesses advanced machine learning algorithms to offer highly accurate solutions for complex mathematical challenges. It focuses solely on mathematical problem-solving, overcoming the limitations of generalised language learning models.
TeacherGPT, the third model, acts as an AI-driven assistant. It adopts a unique “point teach and bottom-out” approach, gently guiding students towards correct answers while promoting independent problem-solving skills.
Personalized Learning Redefined: The Power of BYJU’S WIZ
Dev Roy, Chief Innovation and Learning Officer at BYJU’S, expressed his belief that BYJU’S WIZ will usher in a new era of personalised learning. The suite aims to teach students not only “what to learn” but also “how to learn.” With an accuracy rate of nearly 90%, BYJU’S claims that the AI suite provides safe and reliable hyper-personalised learning experiences.
BYJU’S Commitment to Hyper-Personalized and Reliable Education
BYJU’S affirms its dedication to delivering hyper-personalised learning solutions. The AI team at BYJU’S has meticulously developed BYJU’S WIZ to ensure students receive tailored educational content. The suite is designed to enhance learning outcomes by understanding individual needs and providing accurate and reliable educational resources.
Challenges and Investigations: The Troubles Faced by BYJU’S
Despite its innovative strides in education technology, BYJU’S has faced challenges in recent times. The company had to downsize its workforce by laying off 2,500 employees due to funding constraints and mounting losses. Additionally, BYJU’S is currently under investigation by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for alleged violations of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).
Furthermore, BYJU’S has encountered difficulties in restructuring its loans. Recently, the startup’s creditors for its $1.2 billion term loan B (TLB) securities withdrew from negotiations. In response, BYJU’S filed complaints against its lenders for demanding immediate
