Learn how the University of Virginia, School of Medicine VMed program is experimenting with natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically categorize educational content, such as exam questions, learning objectives, course materials, images, etc., and attach them to MeSH terms for advanced searching, automatic associations, hierarchical exploration, and recommendation building, in a manner beneficial to both students (for exploring related content that they are having trouble with or want to dive deeper into), and for administrators and faculty (to better audit their content placement with curriculum mapping utilities), opening up course content management to better continuous quality improvement by leveraging algorithms for supervised learning.
