We were all frustrated by the lack of options we had for studying. Limited by the amount of questions in our textbooks, we were often forced to turn to online sources that taught differently from our textbooks.
Thus we created Scribe. Scribe is a natural-language processing application that generates unique questions based solely on the content of the textbook. Rather than identifying keywords and then selecting optimal sentences like other algorithms, Scribe selects optimal sentences first.
The algorithm is implemented in our mobile-friendly website. Users can upload pictures of paragraphs from their textbooks onto the site. An OCR algorithm will convert the image to raw text , which is then analyzed by our algorithm.
