New Sapience: The Knowledge Company

A Breakthrough In
The Way Technology Can Enhance Our Lives

A new day is dawning in the balance between digital devices and the way we use them.

People and Digital Devices: A New Balance

New Sapience began with a simple thesis: that the quickest way to create a thinking machine was to give it something to think about.

We hypothesized that knowledge has underlying properties, a hidden structure, which could be explicitly implemented as a software object structure without having to emulate the neural processing architecture of the human brain. Such a structure could support a compact model of the commonsense world that could be easily extended by reasoning about incoming information such as natural languages rather than being trained against datasets.

We were right. Today humanity is on the threshold of a new world in which the balance between people and our digital devices will be forever changed.

The Breakthrough in Language Comprehension we have been waiting for

The capacity to understand human language opens a whole new market of language-enabled applications that start at a level of capability far beyond the reach of today’s existing chatbot technologies.  Since our software learns, like a person, through reading and conversation, each instance becomes a unique individual.  We call these entities sapiens. Today they are already helping people remember things but the technology is hugely scalable and in a few years sapiens will become lifetime companions, changing the way we relate to computers forever and making our lives better in innumerable ways.

human: I’m taking my Lyrica now.
sapiens: Okay.

human: When did I take my Lyrica?
sapiens: You were taking Lyrica on 6/22/2020 at 8:47:07.

human: The parking permit is in the car beside the driver.
sapiens: All right

human: Where is the parking permit?
sapiens: It is in the car beside the driver.

human: I keep my cevimeline in my top bureau drawer.
sapiens: I see.

human: Where is my cevimeline?
sapiens: Your cevimeline is in your bureau drawer.

human: Last night I took my metformin at 9:00 PM.
sapiens: I see.

human: When did I take my metformin?
sapiens: You took your metformin on 6/21/2020 at 21:0 at night in the p.m.

These conversational interchanges are from actual testing of our first consumer product in our upcoming Companion Series Product line.

To illustrate how fundamentally different a sapiens is from existing natural language applications, the same inputs were repeated to Apple’s SIRI and a chatbot named Replika.

SIRI: Sorry, I’m still not sure about that.

human: Last night I took my metformin at 9:00 PM.
SIRI: I didn’t find any appointments for today at 9:00 PM. Shall I create it?
