Our AI personal assistants (Amy Ingram and her twin brother Andrew) schedule meetings for you. There’s no app, nothing to download. Simply cc email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they’ll take over the tedious email ping pong required to schedule your meetings.
Targeted at individuals, the Professional edition lets you “hire” Amy to schedule all of your meetings, whether that’s 10 each month, 85 or more. She works 24/7, all year round. You can also personalize her signature and add up to 10 VIPs (contacts who don’t need to ask you first to schedule a meeting with you; instead, they can reach out directly to Amy to get the meeting set up).
You might wonder why it’s taken us so long. And it’s true, we’ve spent the better part of the last three years in the basement, in closed beta. Here’s the fact of the matter: it’s super hard to build a single-purpose, fully autonomous AI agent, even when you have some of the smartest data scientists and engineers in the world working on the problem.
When you set out on an ambitious journey like this—teaching machines to converse with humans—you immediately find out that people are utterly crazy! They don’t always say what they mean. They say things that are not true. They are so ambiguous that other humans find it nearly impossible to divine what they want, even around something as seemingly straightforward as scheduling meetings. In other words, building a fully autonomous AI agent is an almost intractable (read: really fricking hard) technical challenge.
Having said that, we discovered, to our great delight, that if people have the option to hand over meeting scheduling to a trustworthy AI assistant, they will do so. And they’ll be really grateful because meeting scheduling is a tedious, time consuming chore and most often not what you were actually hired to do.
We see the Professional edition as the first small step towards democratizing the personal assistant. Be a friend. Go try it out! Sign up for the free trial and let me know how it goes. I am at email@example.com, and I would love to hear about your experience.
