How will you contribute?

You will be contributing to the research and development of an assessment software platform aimed at helping teachers create testing assessments for primary and secondary students. The creation of such tests will be powered by an AI-system relying on the use of large language models for the education sector.

In particular, you’ll be working on the development of a set of prompt templates to generate different types of exams based on a number of dimensions (age, subject, level,…) using state-of-the-art large language models. You will then also participate in the fine-tuning of a LLM to produce better results for this type of task. 

A combination of AI techniques (LLMs, fine-tuning, vector databases to let teachers also upload their own material as input, chatbots to facilitate the interaction between the teacher and LLM,…) will be used.

You will be in charge of:

  • Evaluating the quality of proprietary and open source Large Language Models for the educational domain.
  • Fine-tuning LLMs
  • Testing the end-to-end process
