New Update

On Wednesday, Byju's announced the release of Byju's Wiz, a collection of three cutting-edge AI transformer models (Badri, MathGPT, and TeacherGPT). According to the company, the new suite will give students individualised learning opportunities.


What are the AI learning models released by Byju's?

A student's knowledge state can be reliably predicted using Byju's AI suite, which the company claims has a 90% accuracy rate. It can also spot misconceptions, learning gaps, or errors. While Badri employs predictive AI to identify a student's strengths and shortcomings in detail, MathGPT uses sophisticated machine learning algorithms to produce the best answers to challenging mathematical problems. The second tool, TeacherGPT, is an AI-driven assistant that provides individualised advice and ensures students are guided to the correct answer.

The AI suite is unique in that it is not only based on generative AI models that have already been developed, but it also uses the enormous power of Byju's large ocean of data derived from the billions of daily interactions on its platforms. The AI suite may go through extended training and amplification thanks to this synergy, the tech startup said in a statement.


Company's Outlook

  • Dev Roy, the company's chief innovation and learning officer, thinks Byju's Wiz will usher in a new era of personalised learning, "taking a significant leap forward" in how education may be provided to future generations.
  • Divya Gokulnath, a co-founder of Byju's, said in an interview that the company also employs AI internally to improve efficiency across many of its verticals. One such area is reviewing a class's quality to determine whether the instructor utilised the best analogies to explain a concept. Gokulnath claimed that Byju intends to refrain from replacing moderators, content producers, and professors with these AI suites, which it has been developing internally for over a year and a half.
  • According to Gokulnath, Byju's is confident that creating and applying AI models will favour many facets of its operations, including the bottom line. Executives emphasised how exposing kids to these AI models will significantly and positively impact their educational development.


The startup acknowledged that it is also developing its substantial language models. The tech sector is severely impacted by the wave of generative AI services, such as OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Bard, upping the stakes for survival. Chegg, a significant participant in edtech, had its shares collapse more than 60% this year, partly due to the company's admission that ChatGPT is severely harming its business model.

After being nudged repeatedly, Roy warned that many tech services not utilising AI to enhance their offerings may become obsolete.
