Giant Otter Technologies

Combining Harvard and MIT research, we bridge the gap between digital and live instruction, empowering people to practice social skills through open-ended dialogue (typed or spoken) in vivid, safe web/mobile-based 3D environments. SchoolLife is a 3D anti-bullying simulation where students walk in the shoes of a victim and bystander to learn empathy skills through unscripted conversations with characters driven by a massive database of recorded dialogue. Future products will target professionals.
We build simulations to teach social and communication skills using crowdsourced artificial intelligence
