Stockholm, 31 October 2022 – Anoto Group AB (publ) (“Anoto”) announces today that its education subsidiary Knowledge AI Inc. (“KAIT”) has agreed to working with the metaverse company Grid, http://www.gridinc.com/, to convert web based AI Tutor into a metaverse platform. Grid is a Korean company owned by AIITONE (formerly Soltworks), the largest shareholder of Anoto Group and one of the leading metaverse companies. The initial version will be available in December and will be in commercial production starting January 2023.
“KAIT is always concerned about increasing student motivation. Its AI Tutor offered in metaverse format will attract students to spend time in the education metaverse. It is going to have a study room where students can study individually, a group study room for collaboration, and a virtual classroom where teachers can meet their students remotely in a metaverse. Collaboration with Grid is a win-win situation as we do not have to spend time and resources to develop our own metaverse, while Grid can benefit from the students on the KAIT platform,” says Joonhee Won, CEO of Anoto.
