Grove Street Publishing books get a new artificial intelligence (AI) ally in the ROYBI robot.
The partnership aspires to optimize online learning by offering children an accessible and interactive medium to read and learn on the go. Grove Street Publishing will expand ROYBI’s content to digital children’s books, including the implementation of its patented AI voice technology.
“This partnership with ROYBI will transform storytelling and learning,” says Kevin Phun, Managing Director of Grove Street Publishing. “The two sides come together to form a positive learning experience. It seems natural that toys have a story! “
Grove Street Publishing’s online platform, Grover, offers hundreds of interactive books accessible to children. ROYBI will apply its patented automatic speech recognition engine to digital books via Edge AI, an on-device recognition system. This AI technology allows children to read and interact with digital books at their convenience, bringing together the best of education and entertainment.
“This collaboration marks the start of expanding our resources into different categories with the goal of expanding our educational content, ROYBI characters and technology to a wider audience globally,” said Mark Meding, Manager commercial development at ROYBI. This also allows ROYBI to extend its reach from pre-K to K12. “
ROYBI Robot is an AI powered educational robot for ages 3 and up. ROYBI aims to develop basic STEM language and learning skills through personalized teaching practices. It offers more than 70 learning categories to ensure academic variety and efficiency.
