HORIZON VENTURES / SRI INTERNATIONAL

Referred to us through Kuato Studios, Hong Kong based VC firm Horizons Ventures sought assistance creating an education AI market category with KAI, a learning AI product developed by Apple Siri creator SRI International.

CHALLENGE

KAI was a result of improving and adapting SRI's Virtual Personal Assistant platform (the heart of Siri before the Apple acquisition). An intelligent adaptive learning platform aimed at one-to-one tutoring, the product’s real world capabilities and its potential to integrate into a commercial product needed to be mapped, evaluated and presented to Horizons.

HOW WE HELPED

Working with the Education Director and the team of NLP engineers and teachers, we mapped out and wireframed activities around core scenarios: taking tests, use as a study aid and exploring a curriculum. KAI was also integrated with Kuato Studios' Dino Tales as a tutorial / assistant.

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

KAI was spun off as Kasisto in 2013 and pivoted towards the financial market.

KAI is currently the leading conversational AI platform for Banking & Finance and is used by MasterCard as MasterCard KAI, Faro Money as Val as well as Royal Bank of Canada, Development Bank of Singapore and Digibank in India.
