My vision, through this company “Mirai Translate, Inc.” is to realize the dream of “everyone, who speak different languages across the world, can freely communicate each other.” Recent progress of machine learning algorithms and big data processing technologies are fostering several performance leaps in speech recognition, image understanding, and natural language processing which includes machine translation. When an information system goes beyond a critical level of performance and scale, many disruptive innovations will emerge at the boundary of the system.
Internet has connected all the computers around the world by its universal connectivity in data communication. We highly demand the next system that connects the people worldwide in verbal communication. It is the system that eliminates the language barrier amongst different languages. Mirai Translate will go for the dream.

Perhaps you have experienced the barrier of “language” in your daily life or work.
“Language” is a medium created to convey one’s thoughts and feelings to others. It is indispensable and has great depth. In today’s environment, one can have immediate access to any information in the world, but not everyone understands each of the “languages” originating in separate places.
We will help to bring people closer through machine translation so that people may be able to share their thoughts and feelings and work together.
