Dr. Daniele Di Mitri is the AI Newcomer 2021 of the category Humanities and Social Sciences at the KI Camp 2021 organised by the German Informatics Society and the German Federal Ministry of Education.

His research is oriented towards the question: how can we best interface artificial intelligence applications with humans to ultimately support human learning, support their goal achievement and boost human productivity?

“The only function for which is AI is currently used in higher education is plagiarism check. There is a lot more that AI can do for education. I can imagine realistic application scenario both at primary school, with intelligent tutors via playful interfaces can engage students both individually and in group in learning concepts as geometry, geography, algebra, history, physics.” – Daniele Di Mitri, PhD
