Giffie: Learning to read
Learning to read English is a challenge. It is a challenge for tens of millions of kids even in a country like the USA where it is the primary language of communication. This struggle to read, magnified by highly irregular spelling in English, sets up a lifelong struggle to learn.
We are solving this problem by introducing an animated AI character who can talk, listen, and engage each child, while enabling learning through carefully constructed experiential narratives and storytelling.
