WILMINGTON, Del., Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Artificial Intelligence Development Company AKAStudy ("AKA") (CEO Raymond Jung) will hold a press conference on November 18th at Tokyo 21c Club to demonstrate their interactive artificial intelligence robot, Musio.

The conference was organized by the Japanese accounting firm, Deloitte Tohmatsu Group, a subsidiary of Accelerator Tohmatsu Venture Support, and AKA Japan. In addition to the Japanese Ministry of Education (MEXT) and major media outlets, Softbank, Yahoo Japan, NTT DoCoMo, KDDI, and other major companies in Japan, are expected to attend.

Modeled after human-level intelligence, Musio is a robot with the ability to learn new statements and acquire information. Musio is equipped with an artificial intelligence engine called Muse that helps it to collect language and visual data and process user information during conversations, perfecting its communication capacity.

Musio's ultimate goal is to use its interactive controllers, also known as IoT hubs, mentioned as the "Next Big Thing" by Bill Gates, to control IoT devices for implementation in smart homes.

Musio has become very popular with the Japanese, whose interest in English education has been rising. The fact that Musio's fan club has been created this June proves Musio has received a lot of attention before its official launch. AKA has established a subsidiary in Japan and is planning to integrate Musio into the Japanese market, starting with a press conference to be held this November.

The CEO of AKA, Raymond Jung, said "First of all, Musio will provide an English speaking environment for children from non-native English speaking countries. In addition, we are aiming to develop its capabilities as an IoT hub to make robots humans' closest friends. With these goals in mind, we hope to create meaningful values and expect a huge success in the Japanese market."

AKA is planning to spread its wings in different parts of the world. In November, AKA is going to present the artificial intelligence engine Muse at the Rakuten Technology Conference. In December, AKA will be in London to present Musio at the Most Contagious conference and Techcrunch's Disrupt.
