Developing Personalized Degree Planning System

AskOski is a degree planning system that incorporates machine learning models built on various data like course description, past preferences, and historic enrollment to help students explore their academic interests. To further facilitate the system’s exploring and planning features, my summer research project will focus on exploring, building, and fine-tuning different variations of the bag-of-words and course2vec models. Additionally, I plan to leverage tools like OpenAI’s models to perform feature extraction and searching.


Message To Sponsor
