Japan creates online 'chat robots' to converse with language students - Telegraph

Japan creates online 'chat robots' to converse with language students  - Telegraph | Japan and its language | Scoop.it
“ A Japanese company claims to have invented the world's first artificial intelligence...” The online characters – dubbed "chatbots" – employ high-speed speech recognition technology enabling them to conduct real time spoken conversations directly with students. The chatbots, created by the language education company SpeakGlobal, can be accessed online and students are also able to participate in the "virtual world" in which the robots inhabit. "SpeakGlobal has developed online robots that look and move like a human, speak aloud and its dialogue lines appear on the user's computer screen," said the company in a statement. "Most importantly, learners can speak into a microphone using Dragon Naturally Speaking – high-end speech recognition, considered the best speech recognition in the world."
