Socratic: Making children wiser than ever

Socratic- An app that makes children wiser and brighter day by day. The Google AI-powered app is an exceptional creation to help a budding and inquisitive mind not only to master his school tasks but also grow intellectually. Whether it’s maths, science, social studies, language, literature or any other subject, the Socratic app helps to nail each chapter and aspect with easy to understand visuals and help from experts. 

It’s a fun learning app filled with interactive features that makes a student embrace his studies rather than run away from it. With the help of Artificial Intelligence, the app can deduce with which process(es) will a student find it easier to solve a query/question. Suppose if you’re child wants to solve his math homework answers, the app will help him/her find it. The person simply needs to click a photo of the question or type it out to get the answer. 

The answer is obtained by the OCR or Optical Character Recognition technology as it enables the learning app to recognise the characters in the form of the query. Then you get a variety of ‘cards’ explaining and supporting the answer. It could be in the form of descriptive answers, video explanations, Q&A, infographic, Google search, etc. You also get original answers and elaborations from the parent community, i.e. from Socrates.org.

Children may mischievously like to call it the ‘app that does homework for you’, but that’s okay, they should be able to learn more from it. 

Let us see what all it has to offer:
