Improving CS Student Retention with Intelligent Agents

Fang Tang, Robert W. Kerbs, Gilbert S. Young

In recent years, many Computer Science undergraduate programs have had to address declining enrollment. While the reasons behind the decline are complex: the dot-com bubble burst, the way we train students, the lack of intellectual excitement, and so on, educators are creatively trying to broaden students'interests in computing. In this paper, we present our plan to use some AI concepts, especially the concept of intelligent agents to initiate students' interests in AI, and more general, in Computer Science.
