We design technology that’s redefining the role of Conversational AI

When we started work on the idea for Alana, we considered everything human conversation gives us. It answers questions. It provides companionship. It builds connections, shows understanding and allows us to explore and discover new information. While existing task-oriented AI assistants can participate in a question-answer dynamic, they can’t perform any of these other vital functions.

We created Alana to start a more multi-dimensional AI conversation.
