Global Walkers, Inc.

Our company name called “Global Walkers” is a combination
of "Global" meaning “world-class” or “targeting world markets”
and "Walkers" meaning “walking people”.

The term "Walkers" implies step-by-step business promotion,
constant advancement of businesses/ technologies,
new findings or discoveries through walking around various places
and promotion of such activities with our associates (several persons).

We will create new values by combining machine learning (AI)
and image processing technologies (computer vision).

Message from the President

This aspiration to target global markets more aggressively is a driving force
of our business activities in the current flattening world.
Since our foundation, under the corporate philosophy “Create an innovative technology for global”, our members with a high level of rich expertise and a wide variety of careers, including members well-experienced in overseas business, members experienced in technology development at research institutions such as corporations/universities and members responsible for new business promotion,
have joined our company and have been improving our products/services through studies on a daily basis by scrutinizing their quality and content that can be conveyed to the world.
In recent years, we have established an overseas subsidiary company at last in the 5th business year after our foundation and created an additional contact point with the world.
I myself, without staying here, is taking the initiative in promoting businesses that may lead to the creation of new values, as a compilation of my experiences that I have ever accumulated.

While technological advances have the potential to bring revolutionary changes to people's lives, the technologies that are unpractical and very costly to be put to practical use are not realistic.
We will aim to develop and provide advanced and practical services by combining the direction of research and development of our technologies and sufficient utilization of such technologies in our own services, without creating any services which may end up being unused or receiving an opinion that "They are interesting.".
Furthermore, we will create values to satisfy all the people selecting and engaging with us
in this gigantic information society.
