Brain Technologies Announces $50 Million in Funding, Reimagines Computer Interfaces with "Natural" AI
People Can Focus on What They Want to Do, Not What App to Open, Investors Include Laurene Powell Jobs, Goodwater Capital, Scott Cook and WTT Investment
SAN MATEO, Calif., July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brain Technologies Inc., an artificial intelligence company with a mission to humanize technology, today announced the launch of its Natural app, the world’s first consumer generative interface that puts people at the center of technology. The company also announced more than $50 million in funding from investors including Laurene Powell Jobs, Goodwater Capital, Scott Cook and WTT Investment. Brain Technologies will use the funds to ignite market growth and further its research and development efforts.
“Before Google, information lived passively behind catalogs of keywords. We had to know which website to access for the information we needed, or scroll through pages of keywords on Yahoo,” said Jerry Yue, founder and CEO of Brain Technologies. “Today's apps live in similarly layered and passive systems. We have to firstly know an app exists, and make an effort to find it, before we can use it.”
Natural is the first interface enabling software to be in sync with your intention. You no longer go to apps, apps come to you. Simply say what you want and the right app forms itself around your words. For example:
“What Jerry and his team are developing is incredibly special. I’m not aware of anyone doing more interesting work to demonstrate how fundamentally AI can enhance our everyday lives,” said Scott Cook, founder of financial software giant Intuit.
“Many of us remember the first time we used an iPhone. The software felt magical, and every animation felt dynamic yet subtle,” said Tom Goodwin, a Natural beta customer. “Experiencing this app is the closest thing I’ve felt to that for a long time. I love the idea of one place to go for everything.”
“While some are using AI to make technology more dominant in our lives, we're leveraging AI to do the exact opposite, putting people at the center,” Yue continued. “Like the air we breathe, we believe the future of technology should be simple, invisible and natural.”
