EduLab, Inc. (Location: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Junichi Takamura; hereinafter referred to as EduLab) has become the first company in the education industry to be identified by NVIDIA Corporation (Location: Santa Clara, California; President and CEO: Jensen Huang; hereinafter referred to as NVIDIA), a developer and seller of GPUs, as a partner of its “Inception Program”, which is a program that helps AI startups (※).
※ As of the end of June, 2017. As a corporation excluding schools and research institutes.

In response to this, we have purchasedan AI super computer DGX-1 made by NVIDIA and use it for our “handwriting recognition technology based on deep learning technology”, currently in development, in order to provide a more effective marking system of written tests in the field of testing. This will enable us to develop faster and improve recognition accuracy which will lead to practical uses.
