Building humane machines.

“We provide and drive secure, trusted personalities for conversational interfaces like chatbots, virtual assistants, avatars, and robots.”

In other words, we design and build products that are capable of understanding and responding to human dialogue. We do this by crafting conversational personalities who act as an interface. The spaces in which these personalities live include everywhere from mobile to AR/VR.  

Why that’s good for our customers


    • We go beyond
      Our digital characters use speech and animation to provide contextually and emotionally appropriate responses to human input. But we don’t just provide personalities and the means to manage them. We can also help you amplify these personality templates with bespoke design.

    We’re poets, writers, artists, thespians, and psychologists

    Providing an interface to AI requires a unique set of skills. From poets, playwrights, painters and actors, to early avatar and bot designers to graphic designers, UX experts, and engineers, we are a team that understands the complexity of creating a believable personality that increases user interaction and deepens a personable experience.


  • We’re flexible
  • We know that our customers’ bot is their brand, therefore can customize and tailor our products.

  • We help you learn
  • Our personalities are designed to help you know your user better. We do this by using affective computing—systems that can detect and portray human emotion. We consider the many vectors of tone of voice, facial expression, body language, and nuances of word choice. Humans are multi-modal. So are bots.
