Hayashi, one of our founders, was a Shogi player who won several national amateur championships and obtained the highest amateur rank of 6-dan at that time. Later, when he was improving his skills, he was influenced by the Artificial Intelligence (AI) of Shogi, and it was the beginning of the unknown possibilities.

We are developing products based on "AI x mobile", which is a combination of the industry-leading AI developed by our engineers that have won against professional Shogi players, and mobile which is the most accessible device to people all over the world.
