[00:00:50.250]So if a student belongs to story type A,
[00:00:53.850]we will understand that this student
[00:00:55.800]falls into a particular behavioral pattern.
[00:01:00.150]And by knowing that pattern,
[00:01:01.710]we can provide more targeted intervention to that student,
[00:01:06.330]psychological intervention to that student.
[00:01:19.950]We don't want people to leave a whole career domain
[00:01:23.970]simply because they had one difficult class.
[00:01:26.760]That's what we see sometimes.
[00:01:27.840]And my goal is that that doesn't happen,
[00:01:29.670]particularly for students
[00:01:30.810]who are underrepresented in these classes.
[00:01:32.580]So women, students of color, first-gen students,
[00:01:35.340]that they will kind of develop some of the things
[00:01:38.910]that are necessary for success in these classes,
[00:01:40.800]through the interventions.
[00:01:54.270]I know that these days people are very apprehensive
[00:01:57.240]about the role of AI,
[00:01:59.130]but by using AI for social good,
[00:02:01.290]we can show that, hey, there is this other side of AI,
[00:02:04.740]which is not for making money, not for just doing business.
[00:02:08.070]We can use AI to improve students,
[00:02:10.050]improve the life of the students within the university.
[00:02:13.110]I mean, this is a very useful addition
[00:02:17.490]to improve the quality of education.
