Akwai is an artificial intelligence program housed inside a mobile app. It uses an algorithm called AIVC 3.0 (Artificially Intelligent Virtual Coach - version 3.0) to measure students’ non-cognitive skills – perseverance, willpower, introspection, transparency, accountability, consistency, utilization and tenacity. Over the last five years, our team has incorporated more than 500 individual research studies into this proprietary software.
Starting off, a student will set goals they want to achieve, such as raising their GPA or expanding their social circle. Next, they will use Akwai's app to track their progress and the steps they are taking. The app also connects each user to accountability partners (like classmates and relatives) for motivational check-ins to keep them on track. The AIVC 3.0 algorithms collect data on all app activities and provides coaching to guide students down their own personalized path to success.
