Wily is a New York-based artificial intelligence machine company which uses its technology to answer open-ended questions in a human-like manner. Types of questions that can be answered include what, where, when, and how questions. Wily uses neuroscience technology to answer relevant questions.
The stated goals for Wily are to build an artificial intelligence machine that can read, understand, memorize, think, and comprehend. Wily 'reads' by obtaining information from books and other relevant texts. It then understands and memorizes with the users' questions. Finally, it thinks about and comprehends the answer which the user is seeking and outputs the answer using knowledge gained from texts.
Wily has a conversational application programming interface which allows it to have natural conversations with its users. The intended result here is to create an experience where users are getting answers from a knowledgeable friend rather than artificial intelligence.
26 Venture is the main investor for Wily. 26 Venture is a venture capitalist firm that focuses on machine intelligence start-ups.
