Ex-CERN Scientist on Leveraging AI to Accelerate Language Learning

Being able to speak and understand a foreign language is a lot like having a superpower. It gives you an ability that is often very useful and impressive. But like anything that is great to have, it doesn’t come easy. If you have ever tried to learn a new language, the process can be exhausting and difficult at times. Fortunately, we live in a world where technology can help speed up this process.

Now, with the help of machine learning, we can use technology to accelerate or even gamify the learning experience, making it more efficient and enjoyable in the process.

My guest today to talk about this topic is an Ex-CERN Particle Physicist turned language learning expert who used AI to more efficiently learn French during his time working at the institute. He is now the CEO of Lingvist, an adaptive language-learning platform that uses the same technology he used to learn French. Mait Müntel.

In this episode, Mait shares with us how he created this technology, why it is so effective, and advice he has for anyone who wants to learn a new language.
