HEROZ is an AI company founded in April 2009. With its AI development expertise in shogi and chess, HEROZ offers a solution called HEROZKishin to solve various challenges faced by enterprises. Its implementation instances include energy management, stock forecasting, and supply chain management optimization. The company also released Shogi Wars, a gaming app that leverages shogi AI expertise.
In May 2022, HEROZE released a new service called Kishin Analytics. This product leverages the latest shogi AI to support shogi research. It can run on a browser and be used by anyone without a high-performance computer. It aims to assist many shogi enthusiasts, including professional players and profession-oriented trainees. Previously, only a few professional players could use expensive computers to improve their shogi skills. Now, Kishin Analytics provides a low-cost yet high-quality shogi AI analysis service that is available for everyone on Alibaba Cloud Function Compute (FC).
