Companies like Airbnb, Microsoft and Samsung use our expert-in-the-loop AI platform to tap the expertise of their most experienced customers, delivering content, training and answers to their virtual agent to significantly boost performance.

The platform delights customers with knowledgeable, personalized, and empathetic support interactions while creating new economic opportunity for people in the AI era.
