CNN: ROYBI & Using Technology for Good

Technology-focused entrepreneurs are on the cusp of unprecedented breakthroughs that could allow them to positively impact humanity in a way never seen before. Today’s emerging technologies allow for more visionary and innovative businesses that change lives. Alibaba, one of the world’s largest tech companies, embraces this notion.

Through its #TechforChange initiative, Alibaba Cloud, which provides cloud infrastructure to digitally transform businesses, is calling for inspiring ideas and joint efforts to tackle critical global social and humanitarian challenges in areas like education, economic development and the environment.

As part of this initiative, ROYBI launched its TechForChange campaign with Alibaba Cloud’s partnership to utilize technology to empower children around the world.

To accelerate children’s learning and growth, ROYBI provides a uniquely tailored teaching experience, utilizing its machine learning technology over time, to understand more about every child, through daily conversations, assessing their daily progress, and using this data to teach according to their learning needs.

Our company is ready to change the way kids learn at home, in schools and in learning centers.
