Kimera System will demonstrate new capabilities of its Nigel technology, now the first AI system that extracts understanding from observing reality and not just the analysis of words
- Nigel™ now has situational awareness that allows it to use natural language processing (NLP) and understand “why” a user says something;
- Nigel is able to understand the complexities around human behavior by using newly developed techniques to process sensory data, instead of focusing just on speech;
- Using data from Nigel’s neural network and the various sensors on a device, Nigel can discern even subtle differences in context and situations that can make one sentence or question have a wide variety of meanings;
- While other AI technologies can understand “what” a person says, this demonstration uses the core Nigel technology to power the first NLP functionality that uses real-world intelligence to understand “why” it was said.
PORTLAND, Ore. January 14, 2015 /MobilityWire/ — Kimera Systems (www.kimerasystems.com), producers of Nigel™, the world’s first commercial human-like intelligence technology for connected devices, today announced it will be demonstrating a major breakthrough in artificial intelligence at the NewTech PDX meetup, held in Portland, Ore. on January 16. Kimera Systems achieved the ability for Nigel to have a situational and context awareness that allows it to understand the “why” – achieving this breakthrough at least five years before the earliest prediction that such technology could be ready for commercial deployment.
