With AKA's Academy Mode Functions, Pepper to Serve as an English Teaching Assistant in Classes

AKA, an artificial intelligence development company, announced a function called "Academy Mode", developed for Pepper to serve in the classroom despite the current situation of COVID-19. Academy Mode is designed specifically for the Softbank Robotics Humanoid robot, Pepper, to fit classroom settings and will be released in Korea, Japan, and China's market first. Since entering Japan's market in 2015, AKA has been working together continuously with Softbank Robotics Japan. In May 2019, AKA became an official reseller of Softbank Robotics China for the Pepper robot. Since then, AKA has been actively developing different functions for Pepper to work better in the English education environment. Current functions include Muse AI free chat, Muse Learner's Chat, and Academy Mode. While the first two are essential for Pepper to converse freely in different topics, the third one enables Pepper to actively engage in classroom interactions and be used as a teaching assistant.
