Cambridge Tech Team Discover the True Meaning of Friendship Whilst Creating New Artificial Intelligence App for Your Phone
CAMBRIDGE, England, February 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
True Knowledge asked themselves what is the meaning of friendship when they started creating a revolutionary new artificial intelligence app called Evi. She is young, eager, innocent but not at all naive and is here to help with all of your everyday information needs.
Unlike standard search engines, she is able to not only understand natural language, she allows the users to either talk or type as if interacting with another friend. Evi is also able to learn from the questions asked of her, to build on her fast growing database. Â
Evi really does take the search out of searching, she is able to answer a vast array of questions using her own growing database of nearly a billion facts. For example, if you were to ask a search engine "where can I get a coffee around here?" then you would be presented with a list of websites whose content contains the words included in that question, but with no actual intelligence. Ask the same question of Evi and she will present a list of coffee shops nearby, their distance from your location as well as maps. Evi knows what you want and is able to give you the exact information you need.
Evi is not just a pretty face, by giving her negative feedback (hitting the thumbs down button) she can learn more and more, this will then send feedback to the True Knowledge team who will review the feedback and ensure the new facts are updated in the database.
Evi is a free mobile app for Android and is Â£0.69 on the iPhone, which uses cutting edge semantic search technology.
True Knowledge is a Cambridge based developer, founded by William Tunstall-Pedoe. They have been developing semantic search technology since June 2007. The website trueknowledge.com has been answering questions for over four years as well as providing information services to other businesses and apps. Â Evi is their first product developed specifically for the mobile market.
The first day of launch Evi had over 37,000 Downloads.
In the last six days since Evi was brought into the world she has become a new friend with over 160,000 users.
