Intelligent Tutoring Systems have become more common in education nowadays. AutoTutor is one such system. It uses a world knowledge representation, natural language processing, production scripts and a conversational interface. By assisting students in actively constructing knowledge, AutoTutor shows close to natural didactic and conversational skills. Not only is the system beneficial for both students and teachers, it also helps to test hypotheses in various interdisciplinary fields and generates various new research questions, thus playing an important role in education.
