This disclosure describes a virtual assistant that is tailored for use by children and is powered by a knowledge graph. Topics, which are structured collections of facts, are presented to users based on the knowledge graph, itself curated using folksonomy. As new facts are added to the knowledge graph, the topics presented to the users mature, and the knowledge graph grows day-by-day. Based on the knowledge graph, a natural language generator generates questions or quizzes that engage the users. Users can learn about a topic of interest using quizzes, narratives, etc. and can form groups with their peers, teachers, or parents to collaborate, interact, share knowledge, learn from their peers, assess and evaluate each other’s ideas, and contribute. The knowledge assistant can be provided via a dedicated device and provides an effective learning experience.
