Our digital companion agents use our cognitive AI engine and unique knowhow to establish long-term relationships between people and technology, unlocking unprecedented continuous engagement. Our goal is to use this breakthrough to help people live better, starting with older adults.
Technology is woven into our lives, with the purpose of assisting us. Yet it’s designed to be utilitarian in value, focused on productivity, and not attune to our unique being, inner lives, and emotions. Humans are social creatures, and are fundamentally wired to need compassion, relationships, and connection. To truly deliver on our need, technology needs the ability to project empathy.
After years of research and user studies, combining psychology, behavioral sciences, and advanced cognitive AI capabilities, we built the first empathetic digital companion agent — one that allows the technology in our lives to truly understand us and deliver on our needs, while projecting empathy to deliver long-term engagement, trust, and collaboration.
Initiates the right interactions, at the right time, in the right manner, based on a set of dynamic user, and agent goals.
Use multiple sensory and historic data to construct a fused, dynamic state estimating, among others, the availability of the user for interaction.
Embodied via a handcrafted character.
Expresses itself through multiple modalities that are curated to feel lifelike.
Remembers key user information and uses it together with contextual bandit based methods to choose the interaction that is best for each user.
Plans and executes its behavior to fulfill specific goals and KPIs.
Constructs a predictive model of the user behavior based on historic user and population data.
Encourages stochastic interaction by factoring diversity into its optimization process.
