Speaktoit Makes Devices More Human

Have you noticed how many services and apps there are for mobile devices? It takes a lot of time to search for relevant apps and use them. Speaktoit has created a solution for simple and convenient interfaces.

The Speaktoit Assistant is a virtual buddy for your smartphone that answers questions in natural language, performs tasks, and notifies you about important events. The Assistant saves you time and makes communication with gadgets and web services easier, less stressful, and more human!

The Assistant fulfills user requests using external web services. It works like this: the Assistant gets a question, analyzes it, and chooses a service (such as a social network, search engine, weather provider, etc.) and forwards a formal request. After getting a response from the service, the Assistant converts it to natural language and gets back to the user with an answer or a request for additional information.  Check it out in this Speaktoit Demo.

Speaktoit is a start-up company working on natural language interfaces and talking online products. With experience in artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, and voice technologies, Speaktoit’s goal is to create conversational agents for mobile devices, web, and personal computers via text based and voice interfaces in order to deliver an interactive experience for the user.
