SkyHive Named a Tools Competition Winner

SkyHive® was named today one of 32 winners of the Tools Competition, one of the largest education technology (Edtech) competitions in the world that awarded more than $4 million to winners this year.

SkyHive, partnering with SME, a leader in learning for the manufacturing sector, was a winner in the DARPA AI Tools for Adult Learning opportunity, which sought artificial intelligence-powered tools to help adults learn complex topics necessary for the current and future national security workforce (e.g., AI engineering and cyber defense).

With this funding, SkyHive will continue to develop its Skill Passport ecosystem with SME, for the manufacturing sector.

“We’re thrilled that DARPA has recognized our efforts to reskill an industry where the skills shortage is especially acute,” says SkyHive Founder and CEO Sean Hinton.

Teams recognized and supported as part of DARPA’s AI Tools for Adult Learning include entrepreneurs, industry experts, researchers, data scientists, and workforce development experts who leverage edtech and AI to improve adult learning and reskilling outcomes. The tools being developed by the winning cohort focus on everything from workforce training to intelligent tutoring, immersive skills training, and personalized, self-directed learning.

DARPA’s AI Tools for Adult Learning Agency was one of two funding opportunities this year as part of the Tools Competition, which received more than 1,000 initial submissions from applicants across the globe, with over 250 submissions to DARPA’s AI Tools for Adult Learning alone.
