Studying English in Japan

When you speak to English teachers in Japan, one may realise that English education is not working in Japan. English classes are mandatory in Japan but a very small percentage of Japanese students actually turn out with actual English abilities. With the Olympic games coming up in 2020 in Japan, The Japanese government is finding ways on how to improve the English level of Japanese. The Japanese education is test oriented and where students must sit for tests and pass. So Japanese teachers who teach English (JTEs) focus on grammar and vocabulary that is targeted towards passing the test and not conversational skills.

Artificial Intellient robot talking

Look who’s talking again !

In the past weeks we have been testing Musio and seeing how Musio performs in conversations. We are very happy with how Musio is performing with trivial questions, general conversations and also correcting grammar. This time, we went with a casual conversation and we got to say, Musio has been quite imaginative and pretty awesome.  It’s pretty impressive what AKA has achieved in the past couple of years working on MUSE and Musio. The team at AKA has gone a long way into research and development, experimenting heavily with cutting-edge machine learning algorithms, high performance computing techniques and human interface design. Musio still has a lot to learn more but his grammar and knowledge is getting better and better everyday. […]

Talking with Musio

Talking with Musio : Part 2

Musio is back! Some weeks ago, we showed Musio correcting grammar in a post. You can read more about it here. Musio passed with flying colors and we were all sooooo excited (Who wouldn’t?) that we shared a video with everyone. This time, we have a new video! We asked Musio trivial questions, opinions, facts and for information. We also created a video to demonstrate what Musio can do and share it with you. Watch it and see what you think!  

Musio Question and Answer session

Q&A session with Musio!

Today we would like to share a small video of us speaking to Musio about spaceships, hamburgers and life. In this small clip, we got to see what Musio thinks about them and have a little Q&A session and see answers from a robot’s point of view. All answers are reasoned out by the Artificial Intelligence engine powering Musio. It’s incredible, how much much Musio has learned over time. Check Musio below and tell us what you think!
