The Aiqudo Team is a team with deep passion for solving hard problems using a combination of deep technology and practical inspiration. We want to build simple products that help users get things done and save time.
Our technology spans mobile platform frameworks (Android and iOS) and supervised and unsupervised machine learning techniques for intent detection. We use semantics, knowledge and personalization to easily match user commands to mobile actions and execute these actions in real-time. We are always looking for strong engineers to join the team in our Silicon Valley office as well as in Belfast, Ireland. If you want to be a part of the Aiqudo family contact us.
Aiqudo is a play on Aikido (Japanese: 合気道), the Japanese martial art. Our Voice-to-Actions platform is called Q.
The word Aikido is formed of three kanji :
Aikido: The right path to harness energy
Aiqudo : The right path to harness action
It stands to reason, then, that our Japanese name is 合 Q 道
The name represents us perfectly since we use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning for command matching, Q is our Voice-to-Action platform, and we are all about Action (DO!)
Help people DO more. Period.
Faster ... easier ... better ...
Everybody needs more time! Current digital assistants don’t DO enough today. They create walled gardens where many popular services are just not available. The result is that users continue to use their mobile apps to get things done.
Aiqudo's Q Voice-to-Action Platform bridges this growing gap between virtual assistants and mobile apps. Q makes it natural and easy for you to use voice to instantly execute actions within your mobile apps.
Especially when you are on-the-go!! Remember that your mobile device is uniquitous and your apps are always with you - in your pocket, bag or purse...
No need for you to learn new skills! No need to register services again with your assistant!
