When our founders started Verneek three years ago, AI was still the niche academic bubble they lived in, with the early signs of technology breakthrough! We've had tectonic shifts in the public AI landscape ever since, but our founding conviction has stayed the same: "the best path forward for building the most helpful AI for the benefit of society is to build AIs with deep domain expertise". We have now helped millions of consumers, through partnerships with various enterprises, all served through our deep domain expert AI agents that are built on top of our AI platform. Three years ago, we believed that the time was ripe for human language to become the new holistic interface for interacting with a lot of our everyday environments in the consumer space, and we couldn't be more right about what the technology requirements for enterprise adoption should be! We are now in partnership with some of the largest enterprises and helped them delight their users while increasing revenue and decreasing operation costs.
