Comment from Hitoshi Nishikawa

I am very excited to join alt, which is making steady progress toward its outstanding goal of digital cloning, while simultaneously experiencing rapid growth.

I am certain that many of you have thought about whether you had another person in your life when faced with a choice of any kind. alt's digital clone is the embodiment of this simple, yet universal thought. In the process of realizing this goal, valuable products are created by computationally mimicking various human functions. Nishikawa's mission is to maximize the value of alt by utilizing his experience in artificial intelligence research, R&D organization and project management, and specific new business development.
