Most educational software today automates the teacher, but we are turning that on its head by positioning the computer as a fellow student in dire need of peer tutoring. This captures the common experience that we really understand something only after explaining it to someone else. It's an approach that involves complex meta-reasoning driven by the power of Cyc. We understand and are building that back end; you will be the one to make this fun and engaging for the kids. We have some preliminary ideas, scripts and story-boards, but they are just that: preliminary ideas. Contact us to find out more about this unique opportunity.
Is this you?
You love Unity, and you aren’t daunted at the thought of nearly single-handedly using it to create an engaging, powerful game. On the other hand, you know your limitations and feel comfortable calling on third parties when necessary (e.g., for art.) You have experience with the full lifecycle of game design, building and testing. You aren’t daunted at the thought of nearly single-handedly designing and building a beautiful, simple, powerful user interface for a large, complex application. You are a self-motivated, self-directed problem solver. While you understand deadlines and deliverables, you would thrive in an environment which was more “research lab” and less “assembly line”.
