The children's TV show Sesame Street and IBM have teamed up to make a new vocabulary app for kids. It is the first vocabulary app to use IBM's artificial intelligence (AI) software. The app finds a child's vocabulary level, and then the AI gives the child new vocabulary. The app personalizes learning. As the child uses the app more, it makes sure he or she has understood the new words before giving more.

IBM collected 18,000 multiple-choice tests given to kindergarteners. The researchers said its test results looked good. They said the kids learned and used words like "amplify" and "camouflage," which are usually learned at a later age. Sesame Workshop said the next generation of learning tools and educational technology are a great way to learn inside and outside the classroom. It said: "We're excited to explore it further."
