What is Mei?
Mei is the first messaging app to include artificial intelligence (AI) designed to help you improve your relationships and communication. The optional AI assistant, also named Mei (pronounced “May”) can deliver real-time personalized analysis and advice based on your text conversations.
Android users, Mei is a complete texting app that replaces the one that came with your phone.
Who has a secret crush on me?
You’ll also get information like who texts who more, and how quickly you each respond.
If you decide not to turn on the assistant, Mei offers everything you would expect from a messaging app, such as free end-to-end encrypted data messaging worldwide when chatting with other Mei users, like iMessage (soon we’ll have RCS).
For iPhone users, you can now download Mei in the App Store and analyze your WhatsApp conversations!
Our team has spent over three years combining natural language processing, machine learning models, and one of the largest datasets of its kind, to create an AI that can understand the user through text messages. We started working on this because we felt technology and data could be used to improve the most important thing to many of us: our relationships. Since every relationship is different, Mei can be most helpful if she understands each user and can personalize her help.
Representing the next generation of messaging apps, Mei combines the best of existing messengers, but gives power back to the user with 1) AI technology designed to help and 2) the ability to earn credits from interacting with Mei and sharing information. Credits will allow users access to future features, which will become more sophisticated as Mei’s systems grow. This allows users to let their data/information/knowledge grow with us.
Our objective is for Mei to provide users access to information and knowledge that isn’t available elsewhere, while giving users comfort that they and their data are being looked after.
