Mutual Learning Between Two Machines, A Human and A Machine, and Two Humans (Students)?

Snehasis Mukhopadhyay, Ph.D.

Professor and Associate Chair, Department of Computer and Information Science

Associate Faculty, STEM Education Innovation Research Institute (SEIRI)

Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)

Abstract: This talk essentially consists of three mini-talks to communicate three current research directions of the speaker. In the first part, we will discuss the problem of mutual learning between two machines (computationally modeled as two learning automata). This work is currently supported by an NSF grant. In the second part, we will discuss learning happening between a machine (an algorithm) and a human user, in a framework termed by the speaker as “Interactive Data Science”. This work is supported by a current grant from the USDA and NSF. In the third part, we will discuss mutual learning occurring in an educational setting between CS students and other more senior student role models in a graduate-level CS course, in an approach called “Peer Assistant Role Models” by the speaker and his associates. This work is supported by a grant from the IUPUI STEM Education Innovation Research Institute (SEIRI). In view of the talk’s limited time, only overviews will be presented for each of the three modules. For details, the attendees are encouraged to engage in continued discussions with the speaker, or consult some of his publications..
