Join Sweet Capital and Sensay Inc from Los Angeles for a super inspiring presentation on how bots can help super-charge the global knowledge economy.
www.sensay.it is aiming to be that first breakout cross-platform chatbot — but, unlike most that provide services and information at a convenience via chat, its currency is 'people', connecting people by sharing knowledge, information and experiences.
Sensay is available via a wide range of messaging apps — Skype, Kik, Telegram, Messenger, WeChat and LINE — and the bot acts as a middleman to finding people who can offer you specific advice. That might be as diverse as finding a good Italian restaurant in Stockholm, seeking help building a mobile app or getting a random person’s opinion on the romantic dinner plans you’re cooking up for your partner.
The service uses virtual coins based on the perceived quality of interactions, with the person receiving information able to “tip” their Sensay to encourage goodwill and reward quality. Users can also specify their areas of expertise and become a “Sensay” in those areas, helping others with their areas of interest and requests.
Sensay has raised $6m to date from Sweet Capital, Norwest Venture Partners, Greycroft Partners, NHN and Draper Associates.
