Overview

Computer comprehension and human-computer interaction is a must-have feature in nearly every modern application, yet computers still don’t understand spoken natural languages.

Folks’Talks developed a voice-to-voice method that gathers voice data from native speakers in any language and learns from scratch in order to fully acquire the language. Thus any computer can understand a speaker and execute vocal commands without interference.

The Vision

A computer that understands natural human speech.

The Product

Folks’Talks is an API for any application with computer vision (robotics, smart home, etc.), gaming, or VR/AR/MR. This API will give tools to integrate these applications’ ability to acquire any language from end-users like a real baby does, and comprehend the meaning of the discussion.

The Folks’Talks API is for any application relevant to computer vision. and this API will give tools to integrate in these applications ability to acquire any language from final users.

This IP will be protected by 3 or more patents.

The Problem & Solution

Despite vast natural language processing efforts by large companies, computers still don’t understand humans.

Speech-to-text technology cannot deal with multilingual human-computer interactions in a real-time environment.

The Folks’Talks team is developing a new method and technology for natural language acquisition by a virtual agent.

Consists of:
Chatbots, Personal Voice Assistants, Human-computer interfaces, Smart Home solutions

We will employ a B2B model, initially targeting VR/AR/MR game developers and assistant robot manufacturers.

 

Competition

Voice chatbots and voice assistants, all of them using speech-2-text technics and BERT (language model) technologies.

The Opportunity

Be the first to introduce touch-free human-computer interaction.

Additional competitive advantages:

  • Voice2voice technology 
  • Adjustable to any language 
  • Immediate user environment relevancy
  • Very small language model

Purpose of Equity

We are raising $1,000,000 which will go towards developing an MVP (minimum viable product) in exchange for 20% of the company.
