Mumbai: December 2, 2015: Indian artificial intelligence startup, Arya.ai has been picked by French innovation agency, Paris&Co as one of 21 global companies globally that do standout innovation..
An alumnus of India’s premier angel-backed start-up accelerator, Venture Nursery, Arya.ai, provides advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools that developers can use to build robots that can assist professionals from different fields in their tasks. The AI tools are offered as modules using ‘Language’, ‘Vision’ and ‘Dialogues’ which developers can assemble to give relevant knowledge to the machine to learn. Arya.ai’s platform has a multi-tasking ability and uses complex deep learning algorithms to develop general artificial intelligence systems that can adapt and learn with minimal inputs from humans. By using more general AI rather than rule-based narrow AI, Arya.ai can start assisting humans in making more effective decisions faster.
