We are EXPloring different ways that chatbots can help humans live healthier and happier lives.

Chatbots are programs that mimic conversation using artificial intelligence to understand written language.  They are currently transforming the way users are interacting with the internet from a series of self-initiated searches to a conversation with an increasingly human-like bot.

The real power behind chatbots is their intelligence. Just like having a conversation with a good friend, a chatbot can remember things. It can remember your locations, your favorite drink at Starbucks, or even your preference in styles of clothing.  

We are specifically experimenting with chatbots that remind people to workout, encourage them throughout the day to stick to their meal plan, and help them create healthy competition with friends.  In a larger context, we are also working with hospitals to build the future of preventative healthcare.  With our chatbots and technology, we can help hospitals make sure that once someone is released from the hospital, they stay healthy.
