The Rise of Superlearning Apps in AI x EdTech

nb: this post is a work in progress.

While many AI EdTech solutions focus on automating busywork or adapting to traditional educational frameworks, a new category is emerging: "superlearning" apps. These aim to accelerate human learning by 10x, targeting users with urgent needs to master new domains.

Two notable examples:

  • Speak: Language learning app focusing on active speaking practice. Found product-market fit in South Korea, where English fluency is highly valued.
  • Synaptiq: AI-powered platform for medical students. Used in 220+ medical schools across 85 countries, growing 110% month-over-month.
