The way they have demonstrated this has been through its breakthrough technology that has successfully defeated world class shoji players in public matches - they hope to make this shogi game accessible en masse through developing smartphone games and other smartphone technology.

At this stage, the company has attracted a team of engineers from Japan’s top AI laboratories, however with vision to go beyond Japan and expand globally, they are hoping to recruit talented engineers to join their team and help move their company forward. If you have a passion for AI and a vision to help create technology that is as accessible as it is empowering, this company is for you!
