Co-founders have been friends for more than 6 yrs now. Started working on numerous projects since initial yrs in the univ. Fell in love with AI tech in the 3rd year(2011), started experimenting with the tech available. Came across a lot of problems in search tech and wanted to solve it with our love for AI & ML tech, & have been working since then.
Mate is an AI based Search Engine. How is it different from conventional Search Engines? 1) The application will be "emotionally active". It'll be the first of its kind AI product in the world. 2) Conversational Nature of the app; the user will be able to have a talk (chat) with the app itself. 3) Search inside the mobile apps too.
How are we different?
(a) The AI will not only have its own personality and understand users, but it'll be able to reciprocate own emotions too. (b) The primary source of interaction being chat, gives user an option of tweaking the search result, which is not possible in any search tech available. (c) We'll also be indexing public data in the mobile apps too.
Phase wise plan for the product development. A B2B model will be tested out after the Alpha Phase-1 to get some market validation on the technology.
