Through the joint study with a laboratory of Hiroyuki Sakai, associate professor of the university in the city of Musashino, western Tokyo, the Mizuho Financial Group Inc. <8411> unit aims to step up the utilization of AI technology and strengthen its research capabilities.

According to Monday's announcement by Mizuho Securities, the brokerage house and the laboratory will spend a year to create a so-called polar phrase dictionary that can distinguish between positive and negative regarding phrases used in reports issued by stock, bond and foreign exchange market players.
