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. If you decide not to switch Mei on, you will still have an upgrade to the basic texting (SMS/MMS) app pre-installed on your phone.

Does your daughter seem different today? Is there someone who has a secret crush on you? Mei can predict these things and alert you when she senses certain things in your conversations. Unlike most of the task-focused AI assistants, our AI is designed to give you actionable intelligence about your relationships that can’t be accessed anywhere else or might not always be obvious to you.
 
All you have to do is download Mei from the Google Play store (currently in beta) and you can message any cell phone user in the world.
 
In addition to all the messaging functions that you’ll find on most major messaging apps, we’ve added features and security including data messaging (free texting worldwide) with end-to-end encryption, exploding messages, and customizable view. You can find extra comfort in knowing we don’t ask for personally identifiable information, offering additional privacy.

Mei's Goal

Our team has spent almost 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.
