CCKF Is Using Semantic Tech to Revolutionize the Classroom

Carmel Doyle of Silicon Republic recently wrote, “New technologies such as whiteboards, tablets, laptops and chromebooks are being gradually blended into the curriculum to change the face of education. The idea, it seems, is to give teachers more to work with when nurturing students from primary school all the way up to fourth level, and even students in lifelong learning courses. Such digital technologies are impacting how students interact with teachers and fellow students, and indeed their own brains, to absorb information and learn new things. One Irish company is on a mission to capitalise on the digital space, fusing science with technology, with the goal of disrupting the classroom by using what it calls ‘intelligent algorithms’. It’s also aiming to create jobs for graduates and to keep its head office in Dublin. The ultimate goal, however, is to bring its new technology platform to new markets, starting with the US and then spreading globally. The technology is called Realizeit and the company is CCKF.” Read more
