The potential for intelligent language-based interfaces and control
environments is unbounded.
Here are a few of the spaces we have identified and focused upon:
Imagine a car with a personality.
It remembers you from the last time you traveled, and can
differentiate meaning based on context. For example, "I'm cold"
has a different implication for climate control
in the winter than it does in the summer.
"Where were we yesterday?" is far beyond command-and-control
capability of current environments.
- Set-top boxes
One can envision a soft interface for a sentient set-top box that
controls the telephone, television, stereo, etc.
The interface could have a personality, initiate a conversation
with you or take orders in a traditional command-and-control fashion.
- Hotel, motel, lobby, rooms
A computer that remembers you from the last time you stayed.
It could be ready with the restaurants you like.
Coupled with location-based services, it could have already
found you a date for the evening.
For those too weak or infirmed, or for convenience, the concept
of the set-top box speech interface can be extended to the
A patient could manage the television, check on scheduled activities,
hospital information, or use Brainhat as a gateway to the outside
We are conditioned to think of the telephone as a connection-oriented
But digital telephony can be an "always-on" environment where the
phone or PDA is the source and sink for all manner of coordinated
information about the world, without call placement.
Imagine location-sensitive traffic information, news of the
world or a soft interface to the traditional POTS world, all
- Driving Cell Minutes
Brainhat, Inc. has several technologies that can drive carrier
cell minutes for higher billing.
Brainhat can be a digital pal, an interface for location-based
services, or the glue for location-less voicemail and audio
- Synthetic Characters, Simulation Agent, Games
Brainhat can be programmed to have a personality, goals, beliefs
and feelings for simulation or gaming. It doesn't know that it
- Virtual Assistant
Imagine an environment that knows you, no matter where you
are or how you connect to it--phone, email, chat.
This device could be taking calls at home,
watching the house, checking your email, making out-bound calls
on your behalf.
- Programming Environment
The programming language is English.
If you can describe a task in simple English, you can
give it to Brainhat for delegation to robots and
- Improved Speech Recognition
Brainhat can understand a conversation at a semantic level.
Likewise, it can anticipate the course of a conversation and
provide valuable hints to a speech engine.
Brainhat has interfaces for many different environments:
Brainhat can "chat" via telnet or console interfaces.
Brainhat can read and understand appropriately formatted
Our products have been interfaced through Microsoft SAPI,
Nuance and Rhetorical APIs.
Throw a switch and Brainhat becomes a dynamic VoiceXML server.
Throw another switch and Brainhat serves dynamic and static
Via Brainhat's SQL backend, Brainhat can carry on email conversations
that span minutes or months.
Brainhat has proprietary and XML-based interfaces for third-party
applications and robots.
- XML MIME
The state of any conversation can be exported into XML, suitable
for archive or email.
Brainhats can communicate with one-another through a common SQL
back-end or across daemon connections.
When one Brainhat learns something, others can learn it too.
