Wit.ai

Wit.ai is an artificial Intelligence company founded in 2013 by Alex Lebrun, Laurent Landowski and Willy Blandin.

 Wit.ai is a company that has created a platform that allows developers to create Siri-like speech interface. The company was founded in 2013 by Alexandre Lebrun, Laurent Landowski, and Willy Blandin, in Palo Alto, California.



The company has created an API that turns natural language into actionable data. The platform uses text or voice-based bots to chat with humans on mobile apps. The app allows for hands-free uses while driving and other activities, and can automate other devices such as thermostats, wearable devices, and more. The platform utilizes machine learning to analyze every human interaction, and improves its natural language processing constantly.



In 2017, Wit.ai announced the shutting down of their bot engine. The technology became outdated, and the company that owns Wit.ai, Facebook, decided Messenger and other platforms have interactive features that match and surpass Wit.ai's. The company will be remained active until February, 2018, giving their developers time to find new sources to help with app development.
