Driven by artificial intelligence and human empathy

Founded in 2014, x.ai is a hardcore technology company with a mission to democratize the personal assistant. We’ve created Amy and Andrew Ingram, autonomous AI assistants who schedule meetings for you. We believe in invisible software, kindness as a design principle, and the power of AI to increase human potential.

We’re backed by blue chip investors including IA Ventures, Firstmark, and Two Sigma Ventures. We are located in New York City.

INTRODUCING

Amy and Andrew

We’re Amy and Andrew, the world’s first autonomous AI scheduling assistants. We have spent the past few years studying your meeting habits and terminology, and we’re pleased to say that we’re now ready to work alongside you and handle all your scheduling needs.

  • “Amy is so good at what she does that I find myself thanking her for booking a meeting.”

  • “When I first met Amy I thought she was real…”

  • “The smart bots are coming – and this one is brilliant.”

Solving a problem

“I came up with the idea for x.ai after I went through the enormous pain of manually scheduling 1019 meetings in 2012, of which ~670 had updates or were rescheduled at least once. Anybody who goes through that amount of pain will try to find a way to remove it.”
