Luther.AI is a new AI tool that acts like Google for personal conversations – ProWellTech
When it comes to pop culture, business executives, or history questions, most of us use Google as a crutch to remember information we can’t always keep in mind, but Google can’t help you remember your client’s spouse’s name or the big idea that came to your mind at a meeting the other day.
Enter Luther.AI, which claims to be Google for your memory by capturing and transcribing audio recordings, as you use AI to deliver the right information from your virtual memory bank at the time of another online or search conversation.
The company is releasing an initial browser-based version of its product this week at ProWellTech Disrupt, where it is competing for the $ 100,000 prize at ProWellTech Disrupt Battlefield.
Luther.AI’s founders say the company is based on the premise that human memory is fallible and that weakness limits our individual intelligence. The idea behind Luther.AI is to provide a tool to hold, remember and even boost our brains.
It’s a tall order, but the company’s founders believe it’s possible thanks to the growing power of artificial intelligence and other technologies.
“It’s made possible by the convergence of neuroscience, NLP and blockchain to provide instant, seamless recall. GPT-3 builds on memories of the public internet, while Luther builds on memories of yourself,” the founder and CEO told ProWellTech. of the Suman Kanuganti company.
Start by recording your interactions throughout the day. For starters, these will be online meetings in a browser, as we find ourselves at a time where this is how we interact most often. Over time, however, they envision a high-quality 5G recording device that you wear during the work day and capture your interactions.
If that’s troubling for you from a privacy standpoint, Luther is building some safeguards out of high-end encryption. Also, you can save parts of a conversation of other parties only with their explicit consent. “Technologically, we make users the owners of what they talk about. So, for example, if you and I are having a conversation in the physical world unless you provide explicit permission, your memories are not shared by this particular conversation with me.” , explained Kanuganti.
Finally, each person has their own data in Luther and no one else can access or use these conversations from either Luther or any other individual. They will eventually enforce this ownership using blockchain technology, although Kanuganti says it will be added in a future release of the product.
Kanuganti states that the true power of the product will not come with a few individuals using the product within a company, but in the network effect of having dozens or hundreds of people using it, although it will also be useful for a individual help with memory recall, he said.
While they release the browser-based product this week, they will eventually have a stand-alone app and can also envision other applications leveraging the technology in the future via an API where developers can integrate Luther functionality into other apps.
The company was founded earlier this year by Kanuganti and three co-founders including CTO Sharon Zhang, Director of Design Kristie Kaiser and scientist Marc Ettlinger. It raised $ 500,000 and currently has 14 employees, including founders.
