The Companion app is a 24/7 personalized aide for teens and adults with special needs. It uses Abby – our artificial intelligence avatar – to have real back-and-forth conversations with the user. Through the Companion app, Abby will:
Answers questions (e.g., how to address difficult situations at work, etc.)
Provide all kinds of reminders – wake up, bed time, medications, classes, breaks, laundry, etc. If you can image the need, Abby can remind you of it.
Alert you of expected weather … and what clothes/accessories you may need as a result.
Provide navigation help … walking/driving directions, public transit, and even get you an Uber.
Show you how to do things (e.g., make tacos, do laundry, etc.).
Gets to know you, your needs and routines.
