About Zabaware's AI Technology


Zabaware is a software company that builds intelligent machines. We develop conversational systems (chat bots) that will give your computer a personality using artificial intelligence technology, speech recognition technology, and real-time animation. Our software can speak and understand the English language.

Our technology, called Ultra Hal, is like an inquisitive child and is capable of learning new things from conversations based on natural language processing technology capable of statistically analyzing past conversations. The algorithms behind Ultra Hal have been in development for over 18 years and the recent explosion of social networking has given the system a huge conversational pool to base its knowledge on. The system analyzes hundreds of thousands of conversations publically available on social networks like Twitter and Facebook each and every day. These conversations, along with conversations the system has with its users, get assimilated into a large conversational database that becomes the base of knowledge for the artificial intelligence. Having a conversation with Ultra Hal is, in effect, like having a conversation with the "collective consciousness" of the Internet. Hal's personality is a reflection of humanity.
