Reimagining Language Learning with NLP and Reinforcement Learning


The way we learn natural languages hasn't really changed for decades. We now have beautiful apps like Duolingo and Spaced Repetition software like Anki, but I'm talking about our fundamental approach. We still follow pre-defined curricula, and do essentially random exercises. Learning isn't personalized, and learning isn't driven by data. And I think there's a big opportunity to change that.
