  • A more seamless and automated experience is what almost every Silicon Valley company has attempted to produce over the last number of years, but a new company self-proclaimed as Xix.ai thinks they can eliminate wasted time on your mobile device better than anyone else using a technology they like to call a ‘Recurrent Neural Network’.
  • The company says it wants to use embedded deep links to automate your processes that would normally take a number of actions, and can make almost everything you do on your device that much more seamless and integrated.
  • It started with dedicated apps that took information about your usage process while providing a service in return, and eventually created an Android launcher to help express the benefits of the technology.
  • One of the early apps logged what you were doing and in return restricted access to certain apps at various selected times, which was useful for those looking to stay productive while helping the AI to learn what people do and in what order, which eventually transformed into an Android launcher that had the neural network built in, and would ask users how they were feeling in order to show suggested apps.

  • In many instances, early chatbots seemed more like technologies in search of problems than customer-centric solutions.
  • Many startups, including my own ( ReplyYes ), are utilizing A.I. and chatbots to help consumers engage with brands through their mobile devices in interesting and creative ways.
  • When companies endeavor to solve problems with A.I. and chatbots, a hybrid approach with a human behind the scenes will be vital for success.

In the last twelve months, we’ve witnessed a huge surge in the development and adoption of chatbots, artificial intelligence (A.I.), and machine learning. Many startups, including my own (ReplyYes), are utilizing A.I. and chatbots to help consumers engage with brands through their mobile devices in interesting and creative ways. Examples include the Domino’s chatbot, which enables customers to order a pizza through Facebook Messenger; the Burberry chatbot for London Fashion Week, which helps customers order products they see on the runway; and Lowercase Alpha, which helps founders and friends of Chris Sacca’s venture capital firm Lowercase discover some of the best new apps in the world.
