Career Development Support for High School Students
Including mixi, four IT companies* based in Shibuya launched the Youth Valley project in 2021 to support the career development of high school students. For the first Youth VALLEY initiative, we participated in the 2021 Start Up Lab, held by the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education this year in July-August for metropolitan high school students. At the Start Up Lab, we gave a presentation on the development of Romi, our autonomous conversation robot. Participants learned about the technical differences between Romi and other communication robots. We explained how Romi uses deep learning technology to process large amounts of conversational data and develop speech and how Romi was designed to to be encouraging and comforting.
