Yan is a free self-learning application that uses Artificial Intelligence to help Chinese people to learn the English language.

Based on several short tests, our algorithm picks up on users’ interests and vocabulary to be able to better filter articles which match their reading levels. Our goal is help them spend less time on something they already know and more time on things they don’t know.

We developed our algorithm and beta version one year ago and we’ve been working on improving it. With this algorithm, the system is designed to be able to track between 60,000 to 120,000 words (the beta version is only capable of 13,000 words). It has been moved to the production phase and is on the market.

We have two goals: assessment and education. Once we have assessed, we will work on the teaching system. For the teaching system, it allows lecturers to gauge the level of each individual student before class even starts. This means the instructor can write a personalized homework ass...

We have been selected by CIE (Chicago Innovation Exchange) at University of Chicago. Currently, our team is focusing on improving users’ experience for our official version for the Apple Store which launched on October 18, 2015.
