    2020 a Year of COVID, Challenges and Opportunity Like No Other Before Earlier this year, pre pandemic, the Azafran team fanned out to a host of conferences and demo days ranging from CES in Vegas, to StartUp Grind and TechCrunch AI+Robotics 2020 in the Bay Area. The excitement and momentum was building further in the first part of 2020 for the central tenants of Azafran’s Thesis and the global shift was on to voice, acoustics and imagery.
  • The Global Transition to Voice, Acoustics and Imagery Brings with it Far-Reaching, Positive Impacts to Society

    The Global Transition to Voice, Acoustics and Imagery Brings with it Far-Reaching, Positive Impacts to Society Throughout the course of humanity, voice, acoustics and imagery have played central roles in the human experience and evolution. From basic communication to the arts, and their early and rudimentary uses in business, industry and computing - these modalities now stand to transform the machine-human relationship, partnership and interface, otherwise known as Augmented AI.

  • Azafran Portfolio Case Study: Emoshape

    Azafran Portfolio Case Study: Emoshape EMOSHAPE predicts that before the end of this century humans will talk more to sentient machines than to other humans. The use of emotion remains a fundamental need for humans, one that cannot be addressed by today’s emotion technology. One of the areas that has been holding back robotics, as well as the human-machine interface in general, is the lack of emotion, emotional intelligence, and empathy from the machine equation.
  • Robotics + Conversational and Augmented AI Use Cases

    Robotics + Conversational and Augmented AI Use Cases Following are examples of companies driving the growing transition and transformation of the human-machine partnership and in newer and wider context of robotics. Conversational AI and Social Robotics: Startup company building a social robotics and conversational system platform - the socially intelligent robots are designed to mimic human personality, gesture, and intonation.
