Our Vision

The National Science Foundation AI Institute for Engaged Learning (ENGAGE AI Institute) is guided by a vision that supports and extends the capabilities of teachers and students with artificial intelligence (AI). Our mission is to produce transformative advances in STEM teaching and learning with AI-driven narrative-centered learning environments. The ENGAGE AI Institute conducts research on narrative-centered learning technologies, embodied conversational agents, and multimodal learning analytics to create deeply engaging collaborative story-based learning experiences. We aim for the AI-driven learning environments to be built on advances in natural language processing, computer vision, and machine learning. Our vision is informed by a nexus of stakeholders to ensure that AI-empowered learning technologies are ethically designed and prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion.
