Soul — — A recent demonstration of tools aimed at helping children learn basic math, music, and English, with a blue-eyed toy-like robot and a North Korean flag on the chest in a Pyongyang university classroom. I’m walking around.

The footage broadcast by North Korea’s national television KRT has two other large plastic robots, each with a vague humanoid appearance.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been promoting educational reform in recent years by promoting technological and scientific innovation.

“I’m helping to teach educational techniques that enhance children’s intelligence,” said a 80-centimeter (31.5-inch) tall robot waving his arms in a female voice.

The second robot had a smiley face on a screen embedded in a white round head, and another robot wore a blue plastic suit and white-rimmed glasses. The KRT video shows.

Park Kum-hee, a university professor in Pyongyang, told KRT that there were initial challenges in developing educational robots, such as the robot shaking its head when asked in both Korean and foreign languages.

“Upgrading the intelligence of this robot was difficult for me, who majored in psychology,” Park said.

“It was the words of our respected Comrade General Secretary (Kim Jong Un) about adopting artificial intelligence technology in education that has always guided me in the right direction.”

In the KRT video, elementary school students wearing masks were repeated after the robot in music, math, and English classes.

“Hello? I’m glad to see you. I’m glad to see you too. What’s your name?” Two kids said in English in front of the class.

North Korea reopened school in June last year, but in class it required children to wear masks and set up a laundry room.
