New York Patent of the Month – January 2023

Biometric Edge Inc. is a company that is revolutionizing the way we approach education and test taking. With its cutting-edge technology, the company is able to analyze biometric data to provide a better understanding of how students learn and perform. The company’s system gathers data with a camera and stores relevant information in a database. This method uses video recording to capture the user’s reactions and cues, including pulse, eye blink rate, eye movement and pupil dilation. The data is then processed and mapped to the content that was displayed during the recording to draw correlations.

One of the key advantages of the Biometric Edge system is its ability to provide educational analysis and feedback to users. For example, the system can calculate pacing throughout a test taking session and present a graphical representation of the user’s performance. The system also uses predictive artificial intelligence (AI) models to optimize the feedback provided. This provides a more comprehensive understanding of the user’s strengths and weaknesses and enables the user to improve their test-taking skills.

By cross-referencing biometric data with the content being viewed, the company can evaluate if a given student is trying on the difficult questions or simply moving on. If the test-taker is going back to look at past questions or spending too long on any specific questions. This biometric feedback provides more insight than any standard mock exam, giving the student an advantage they wouldn’t otherwise have. Knowing where they need to improve is key to improving overall.

The company’s technology is particularly beneficial for students who struggle with taking tests. By monitoring biometric data, the system provides insights into why certain students may be poor test takers. This can help to identify specific areas for improvement, such as concentration, pressure, or lack of test-taking strategy. With this information, students can work to address these issues and improve their performance on tests.
