SOLVING CONVERSATIONAL

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

 

Conversational AI interfaces will soon enable people to communicate naturally with computers for the first time. This historic innovation will unleash a wave of changes to search, e-commerce, social networks, productivity software, and devices. Semantic Machines is developing the fundamental AI technology needed to make conversational computing a reality.

VISION

Conversational Computing

 

Conversational AI interfaces are set to drive a sweeping redesign of the Internet. This profound change will impact how people search, how customers interact with businesses, and how we use devices. Conversational AI interfaces hold the power to make us more efficient, creative, social, and productive.

 

TECHNOLOGY

A New Paradigm

 

Today’s commercial natural language systems like Siri, Cortana, and Google Now only understand commands, not conversations. The problem is, people can’t express complex ideas with commands; a dialog is needed to communicate effectively. 

Semantic Machines is developing technology that goes beyond understanding commands, to understanding conversations. Our Conversational AI represents a powerful new paradigm, enabling computers to communicate, collaborate, understand our goals, and accomplish tasks.
