Math AI for Education (MATHAI4ED): Bridging the Gap Between Research and Smart Education

Pan Lu · Yuhuai Wu · Sean Welleck · Xiaodan Liang · Eric Xing · James McClelland

Mathematical reasoning is a unique aspect of human intelligence and a fundamental building block for scientific and intellectual pursuits. However, learning mathematics is often a challenging human endeavor that relies on expert instructors to create, teach and evaluate mathematical material. From an educational perspective, AI systems that aid in this process offer increased inclusion and accessibility, efficiency, and understanding of mathematics. Moreover, building systems capable of understanding, creating, and using mathematics offers a unique setting for studying reasoning in AI. This workshop will investigate the intersection of mathematics education and AI, including applications to teaching, evaluation, and assisting. Enabling these applications requires not only innovations in math AI research, but also a better understanding of the challenges in real-world education scenarios. Hence, we will bring together a group of experts from a diverse set of backgrounds, institutions, and disciplines to drive progress on these and other real-world education scenarios, and to discuss the promise and challenge of integrating mathematical AI into education.
