Chiron, presented by James Booth and Brandon Smith, is an AI-based, math tutoring application. The service helps students gain confidence in solving problems, through one-on-one, active support and teaching. Students can speak freely as they work through solving a math problem and have the AI tutor provide feedback. They can also work out problems on paper and take a photo for the AI tutor to check their work and provide help. As James points out, they are solving a pain point students have when they get stuck and are not sure where to go next - Chiron is there for them.
