We wish you all a happy New Year. As we are on the cusp of the New Year, we would like to thank you for all the conversations with us in 2019.
In 2019, Alan AI experienced its most significant transition to validate our product, Alan Conversational Voice AI Platform, across multiple industries. Here’s a video of a conversational voice experience in a mission critical field operation deployed with Alan. This demonstrates how a voice interface provides a hands-free solution for employees to do their daily work, increasing safety, convenience and providing accurate real-time data from the field operations.
Enterprises and partners developed conversational voice experiences for existing applications on the Alan Platform in Energy, Public Safety, Healthcare, and Manufacturing industries. This validates our “narrow AI” design for spoken language understanding in these domains and Alan Platform’s capability to support unique voice conversations that are only possible in each enterprise app. We are the leader in providing a context based conversational voice experience across apps.
Here is the link to a new 1 min video on the Alan Platform. You can experience first-hand the conversational voice experiences in our sample app, Alan Playground from the App Store or Play Store. Alan Platform is differentiated from consumer voice assistants such as Siri, Google, Cortana and Alexa, and platforms like Nuance in the following aspects:
- Alan adds a voice interface to the existing UI of an app
- Alan trains on a small data set to build a domain language model for any app
- Alan leverages the UI and Dialog context for deterministic conversational voice experience in an app
- Any app (iOS, Android, Web, cross-platform) can be augmented with a conversational voice experience in less than a week
Today, Alan is the most advanced and complete Conversational Voice AI Platform to build, test, deploy & manage voice interfaces to existing apps. In December, the USPTO granted us the patent “Voice Assistant with User Data Context” (10,521,189).
Our vision is to deploy solutions at every enterprise with an intelligent and engaging voice interface for their daily work apps. It will be a seminal transformation in user experience for enterprise applications. We look forward to working with you to make this vision a reality in 2020.
