RendezVu - CTO/Co-founder

RendezVu is an exciting startup targeting the online language-learning space. It combines state of the art 3d (on pc/wii/iphone/xbox) and innovative AI at the back end to create an immersive learning experience. We're aiming at the English as a foreign language market to begin with.

It allows language learners to practice their skills by providing 3D foreign language worlds online. By “immersing” students in real-life settings where they use their knowledge, RendezVu gives learners a deeper and more dynamic understanding of languages, through using them in context.
