ConsilumBots’ model blends artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities and natural language processing to respond to evidence showing that people tend to lack adequate information when they make important educational decisions. Randomized control trials (RCTs) conducted in many countries have shown that simply having the right information at the right time can change choices, decrease dropout rates, and increase academic achievement. These outcomes can produce significantly higher lifetimes earnings for students in developing countries, reduce inequality, and potentially even increase a country’s productivity.
