Your personal AI is not a static collection of notes and recordings; it is an interactive AI that provides you with information and inspiration by combing through your memory blocks.

We believe that interacting with your personal AI through natural language is easier, more intuitive, and more fun. That is why we are continuously a conversational framework that allows you and other people to communicate directly with your personal AI.

Think of your personal AI as a smart personal library. This means:

  • Your personal AI is limited to what you taught it. It will not search the web for additional information.
  • Your personal AI depends on you to teach it what it does not know or what it cannot answer.
  • Your personal AI's knowledge is dated, meaning recent data is more important than older data. This allows you to continuously teach your personal AI while minimizing contradictions.

  • Your personal AI does not yet know conversational context. This means that it does not consider your previous prompt when answering your latest one. For now, include the context in your new prompt for your personal AI to understand.
