Building humane machines.

We allow machines to adapt to human communication.

We build conversational characters who act as an interface. They are driven by machine intelligence, understand context and state for task completion, and communicate with personality and emotional intelligence.

Why that’s good for our customers

  • Simple to use

    End users don’t need to learn how to talk. Nor find menus, 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

    Uses speech and animation to provide contextually and emotionally appropriate responses to human input.

  • Collects rich data

    People’s actions are better predicted in the context of their feelings and attitudes than through text alone.

Applications include:

  • Sales: Marketing, Branding, Promotion & Transactions
  • Education: Training, Instruction, Coaching
  • Entertainment: Video games, interactive books
