The next generation of artificial intelligence from the lab that built the iPhone’s Siri is powering an educational game.
This isn’t a lightly “gamified” platform like Khan Academy‘s new computer science offerings or Codecademy. Kuato Studios is building an immersive, richly illustrated third-person shooter that will have 11- to 15-year-old players “terraforming a virtual world through coding and science,” created by developers from companies like Konami and Rockstar Games.
The game boasts a special secret sauce: the next generation of “virtual personal assistant” technology from SRI, the research institute that created the iPhone’s Siri. (Frank Meehan, Kuato Studio’s founder, sat on the board of Siri Inc.)
