MJI Robotics is a startup company founded in July 2015. We develop communication robots and AI systems with the aim of making a better world for people and robots alike.
MJI stands for "More Joyful Innovation", we aim to make innovative technologies for a brighter future.
"You have a friend in robots and the possibilities are limitless".
【 One of Current Projects】
＜Medial communication robot＞
Four companies; MJI , a robotics startup, Wacon Co., a home-care service startup, NTT DATA Kyushu, one of biggest Communication data/SIer company in Japan and NTT Docomo Kyushu, one of the biggest communication carriers,. are collaborating in the development of the communication medial robot " anco ". All this in the hope of developing a fleet of DoCoMo’s “AI” agent who can gather information from users at home through vital signs measuring instruments. Instruments such as thermometers, blood pressure monitors adapted for the robot “anco”, which possess both vital measurements and diagnosis functions.
The home medical communication robot “anco” is based on MJI’s robot “Tapia plus”, and connected to the “AI” agent “Speak 2” provided by DoCoMo. So far diagnosis and dialogue questionnaires created by Wacon have shown promises. Those scenarios are monitored by Wacon’s remote support. NTT DATA Kyushu creates a dialogue scenario, with input chat interactions, questionnaires, and screening by “anco” that user undergo.
Furthermore, “anco” is also a gateway to connect through “Symphony3” another “AI agent” provided by DoCoMo that manages the data measured in the vital signs equipment, and stores it so it can be potentially accessed by family member and friends who would like to : lets say, keep an eye on their elders.
The rise of AI systems and robots in all facets of our lives is now imminent. May it be through smartphones or intelligent home devices, our living environment continues to change day by day. We look at the future with an open mind and we embrace the positive changes robots will bring to our everyday lives, these changes will come with a price but it is up to us to make the difference in this new society. We want to be part of it, and you can too!
Let's work together to make this world a better place and forge a society where robots are not ostracized but beloved.
【Enjoy your life to the fullest】
Everyone is its own special little snowflake, and we all have different lifestyles and deal with our emotions in different ways. Communication robots equipped with artificial intelligence, facial recognition and behavior pattern recognition are better equipped than humans to deal with the wide range of lifestyles people have.
Forgetful at times? One thing robots are especially good at is memory! They never forget anything, and there is a special place for you in their memory space.
Do you want to keep an eye on loved ones? Too busy to be always present? Robots can be a good substitute to look over for loved ones, monitoring their status making sure they are well,and always allowing you to stay in touch with them.
The development of such Japanese communication robot is already at hand. MJI's robots are somewhat like a family and friends at time. Always there to offer the best of themselves,
and make this loving tie between humans and robot grow every day!
MJI is a small start-up. We are a group of people who like craftsmanship, are state-of-art technology oriented, who like to think about new ideas, who can enjoy doing things he/she has not done before and who want to exchange opinions regardless of nationality under global environments.
Let's bridge the gap between R and D of Machine Learning and actual practice in our life !
Machine Learning Engineer
We are looking for motivated individuals to join our team.
The candidate will be a part of a development team, and they will be in charge of the following tasks:
- Developing AI modules for our communication robot "Tapia" using the state-of-the-art techniques
- Improving the existing AI modules
- Maintaining the web API
-Developing AI modules for medical projects
【About Tapia 】
Tapia is a communication robot that MJI develops. She keeps you company and helps you stay in contact with friends and relatives. She can help you organize your schedule, inform you about news and weather, and provide you with hands free access to your media and IoT devices. Tapia is your assistant and your friend. Tapia isn’t just a machine you have to learn how to use—Tapia learns about you.
As the number of single person households increases, robotic companions like Tapia will become increasingly important, especially in aging societies. Robots like Tapia are such devices in what will soon become a facet of our daily lives.
