Problem or Opportunity

Our education system needs a fundamental change, and that change starts with early childhood education. Named by TIME Magazine as one of The Best Inventions of 2019, Roybi Robot provides children 3+ with a personalized education based on their individual learning pace and interests, setting the foundation for a successful future. With over 500 lessons, including language learning, basic STEM, stories, games, and songs, Roybi Robot uses the power of AI to create a fun and interactive learning experience for children.

Solution (product or service)

ROYBI guides a child’s linguistic development beyond traditional pedagogies, facilitating collaboration between home and school contexts. ROYBI's cloud platform creates a shareable learner profile, enabling parents and teachers to come together through shared communication about each child's developing skills and needs. The ROYBI team is dedicated to developing innovative pedagogical practices through scientific research and digital ingenuity. A growing body of research continues to show the robust benefits of children learning more than one language. ROYBI was developed in response to these research findings, based on principles that are developmentally responsive to children’s language learning needs. Our internal research and focus group results have shown that multilingualism and large vocabulary growth can increase creativity, improve retention of material through cross-linguistic transfer, facilitate social skills, and scaffold learning for all children even with learning disabilities.

Advantages or differentiators

What ROYBI does is different than social robots or chatbots already available on the market. We designed and developed a curriculum in-house to teach and practice with children. Our focus is not 'chatting,' but it is to teach children, assess their learning progress, create academic and scientific growth reports and assessments, correct pronunciations (coming a little later), and more. Ultimately, we use true AI to gradually adjust the content based on the child's learning capabilities and provide a vast ecosystem of educational activities. Our platform guides parents and teachers with its automated / pre-developed content rather than just having conversations. ROYBI continuously analyzes children's speech, including turn-taking, talkativeness, and vocabulary, getting to know each child's unique communicative behaviors and skills across languages. As a result, ROYBI can grow individually with each child, sensitively tailoring its teaching to their specific needs over time. Furthermore, ROYBI can recognize faces and emotions and to laugh, cry, and entertain children in an authentic, interactive manner.
