20 Most Promising Campus Tech Solution Providers - 2017

In the face of mounting costs and progressively tech-savvy students on campuses, education now is on an expeditious pace of transformation. As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning gain traction, schools and colleges can harness these technologies to provide round-the-clock support to all user groups within their campuses. Powering AI and machine learning in the higher education landscape is natural language processing (NLP). Several campuses have already started integrating NLP into their e-learning applications to upgrade the process of education. By the same token, gamification is increasingly adopted by organizations as an engaging and interactive mechanism for learning and teaching.

Meanwhile, new forms of human-computer interaction like augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are jazzing up classroom environments while fostering education among young learners. A relevant example is the introduction of Chatbots to help students with campus-related information. From an operations standpoint, many of these campuses rely on IoT for intelligent mechanisms such as building alarms, parking space monitoring systems, lighting controls, etc.
