10 Jun Clara: Machine Intelligence Powered by Human Support Makes You the Boss
Founder: Maran Nelson
Say Hi to Clara, your partner in doing great work – a virtual employee that schedules your meetings. Clara’s machine intelligence is backed 24/7 by experienced Executive Assistants, promising an AI that actually works.
Highly repetitive and tedious work saps billions of human hours — millions of human lifetimes. Labour productivity growth is stagnant and low even in the current age of technological advances. So Maran Nelson and her team built Clara, a truly human interface: an employee you can depend on. Clara is a conversational intelligence product that is trained on high-quality data, labeled by the distributed efforts of smart people.
Clara isn’t machine-like but interacts with everyone in natural language via email, just like you would. Virtual assistant Clara doesn’t just do all the back-and-forth for you but removes the distractions from your workday that can’t quite be measured quantitatively.
What we love about Clara: Clara is helping us ease into the machine learning and cognitive intelligence future that is soon to become mainstream.
