SEOUL -- KT DS, the information technology service wing of South Korea's largest telecom company KT, has released an artificial intelligence-based remote exam monitoring solution named after the "Argos," a gigantic creature with 100 all-seeing eyes from the Greek myths, to prevent cheating and other malicious behavior in online classes.
KT DS said that the anti-cheat solution was developed to reflect the increased number of remote internet exams due to the popularization of online classes. Online classes have become popular during a coronavirus pandemic. The global market for online classes is growing at an average annual growth rate of 32.3 percent to reach $46.7 billion in 2026, according to Markets and Markets, a global market research firm.
ARGOS, developed by KT's IT service wing, can be accessed through a website without a dedicated application. The solution can recognize the faces of students and analyze the direction students' eyes are facing. It can also detect students using a smartphone, opening their mouths to say something, and detect an unknown person pretending to be a student. Exam supervisors will be notified of acts of cheating in real-time. All videos will be recorded.
KT DS said the company will upgrade the remote education monitoring solution to a smart education platform by adding features such as the analysis of students' studying posture and attitude.
"ARGOS is a solution that can use AI technologies to ensure the reliability and fairness of online exams and dramatically reduce operating costs," KT DS CEO Woo Jeong-min said in a statement on December 13.
