Building humane machines.
We are a product design firm specializing in conversational interfaces and avatars.
In other words, we design and build products which are capable of understanding and responding to human speech. We do this by crafting conversational characters who act as an interface.
Why that’s good for our customers
Simple to use
Users don’t need to find menus, learn key commands, or even tap.
Powerful task completion
The conversational model allows the system to understand complex instructions spoken in plain speech.
Embodies AI / NL systems
The user experience of NL (natural language) systems is personality, and avatars are the user interface. Our characters use speech and animation to provide contextually and emotionally appropriate responses to human input.
Rich data collection
People’s actions are better predicted in the context of their feelings and attitudes than through text alone. We capture users’ tone of voice, facial expression, body language, and nuances of word choice.
