Imagine if ChatGPT and Siri had a baby. That’s Zenen AI!
Problem the startup solves:
Zenen AI focuses on using natural speech as the primary interface of interaction. It is more accessible and user-friendly than traditional text-based AI systems, making it a valuable resource for people with dyslexia and reading/writing difficulties. Zenen AI saves time and effort, provides extensive knowledge, and offers quick access to information in multiple languages, making it a useful tool for creative professionals.
Progress and Current Status:
Zenen AI beta version has been released on the Apple App Store.
What is an Inspiring Story about the Startup?:
For decades, movies have fed us a future where we interact with computers as we do with our peers. Yet, all we have are dumb assistants often causing more effort than just doing work without them. From auto-correct to dictation – the voice interaction with devices is terrible. This has to change.
To set new standards for voice-enabled AI assistants. Assistants with human-like communication and interaction.
What is a Company the Startup Looks Up to, and Why?:
They set a goal to accelerate adoption of sustainable transport. At the times, they have been laughed at, yet despite all odds and challenges they not only proved to the world that it’s possible, they thrive with no sign of stopping.
We aim to make the interaction with machines as natural as possible. No more dictation and auto-correct troubles and wasted time, frustration when one want’s to get simple task done.
The Company in Four Years Will Be…
“Hey Zenen, …”
Large companies play it safe. They innovate on the inside to maintain status quo.
We are going to challenge this by trying to dethrone the existing (dummy) assistants like Siri, Alexa and Google.
What’s the worst that can happen? We fail. Something will raise from our ashes :)
