Tim Tuttle answers user questions on Expect Labs' MindMeld iPad app. Expect Labs is a startup based in San Francisco that is building a technology platform designed to reinvent how we have conversations. Expect Labs is the creator of the iPad app called MindMeld, which is the first voice and video calling app that can actually understand conversations in real-time to make it easy to find and share related information as you talk. -------------- TRANSCRIPT: Hi there, this is Tim Tuttle from Expect labs again. I'm taking some time to answer questions that we've gotten since we launched our company Expect Labs at TechCrunch Disrupt a couple of weeks ago. At the conference we demoed for the first time our iPad app called MindMeld, which is an app that is designed to, it's a communication app that let's you do high quality voice and video calls, but also tries to understand parts of your conversation as you talk, to make it easy to find and share related information. The question that I've been getting asked a lot, because a lot of people have seen our presentation at TechCrunch Disrupt. We were selected as a finalist of TechCrunch Disrupt, which is awesome! And people have been asking what's it like to present in the finals at TechCrunch? So, well the answer is, it's an awesome opportunity, and it's nerve wracking. And it's lead to a lot of great attention and publicity for the company. So, if you have the opportunity take advantage of it. But probably the most surprising thing to me was the, probably the biggest thing that was unexpected during the presentation, was the last thing that we could have tried to anticipate, which was, when we were trying to show this demo, the connector on the side of the iPad kept popping out. We had sort of prepared the presentation and tried to anticipate things that might go wrong to make sure things went smoothly. As it turned out it was this twenty dollar connector that kept sliding out of the iPad as I was holding it trying to do a demo that probably was the thing that made it most difficult to communicate what the demo was. So, we ended up showing probably about half the things we wanted to show in the demo because this tiny little connector, iPad connect kept sliding out. So that was the take away for me was that it might be things that you can't even expect that might be the biggest challenges, the biggest surprises during the presentation. It ended up being okay. It ended being, the guy on the stage ended up taping it in with masking tape as I was giving the presentation. We ended up demoing the key parts of the app. That was probably the thing that was most surprising is that things you don't even expect will happen. So, that's my take away. It was awesome and nerve racking. And there's probably gonna be things that surprise you despite all your best efforts to prepare. Okay, I hope that's interesting. I'll talk to you later. Bye.

Expect Labs is the creator of the iPad app called MindMeld, which is the first voice and video calling app that can actually understand conversations in real-time to make it easy to find and share related information as you talk. -------------- TRANSCRIPT: Hi, this is Tim Tuttle from Expect Labs. I'm taking some time to answer a few questions that we've gotten from users since we launched our company a couple of weeks ago at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco. When we launched at the conference, we showed our iPad App called MindMeld for the first time. And MindMeld is an app that we're releasing soon which is a voice and video calling app for the iPad that actually can understand the things that you say during your conversation in order to make it easy for you to find and share related information as you talk. Now, a lot of the questions that we're getting are about what's it like to be on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt and present before these judges. Well, I'll try to answer that. So, we were honored to be selected as a finalist at TechCrunch Disrupt and we got to present on stage in front of these awesome judges, including Marissa Mayer, Chris Dixon, David Sacks, David Lee Roloff, Mike Arrington. So, that was an honor in itself and we're thrilled to have that opportunity. But some of the specific questions that we're getting, that I've heard a number of times is why was Mike Arrington asking such probing questions and being such a jerk to you guys? At least someone said that to me. First of all, he wasn't being a jerk. He was asking legitimate questions and unfortunately they were questions that we didn't have the green light to answer yet. So, for the people that asked this question, I was asked who the investors are in Expect Labs and I couldn't answer that question because I hadn't talked to our existing investors and made sure it was okay to to reveal that information publicly. And any of you guys who have done this know that you obviously need to talk to people before you talk about them publicly, and I hadn't done that yet. We weren't planning on talking about it at the conference so when Arrington asked me these questions about who the investors where I was a little bit tongue-tied and unfortunately I didn't have the green light to talk about this things. So anyway, as a result he did his job which is to try to hammer on me until I was forced to give the answer and I had to do some tap dancing to try to avoid giving the answer, and the whole thing was weird. I'm in the process of talking to investors now to making sure it's okay that we talk about the funding we did recently, publicly, and we're excited to announce that because we have awesome, awesome seed investors and we're excited to talk about that. So that's my answer to that question. And if you guys have any more questions feel free to ask. I'm happy to try to answer.

Expect Labs is startup based in San Francisco that is building a technology platform designed to reinvent how we have conversations. Expect Labs is the creator of the iPad app called MindMeld, which is the first voice and video calling app that can actually understand conversations in real-time to make it easy to find and share related information as you talk. -------------- Hey everybody this is Tim here. This is my first blog post and I'm excited to announce that we're launching our new company Expect Labs after two years of hard work. I'm here at TechCrunch Disrupt with George, who's working hard, and we have Brett over here and we're here late at night at TechCrunch Distrupt before it starts. And we're going to be presenting on stage on Tuesday here, so this won't go live until after that, but I just wanted to say hi everybody and hope you'll check out our website. We started Expect Labs really based on a vision about how we think applications are going to work in the future and we see that only just a few years from now. We're going to live in a world where there will be computing devices all around us and these devices will pay attention to what's happening in our life and in some cases listen to and understand our conversations so that they can better anticipate the information that we need. So, you'll be on the phone and somebody will mention that they want you to meet them at a restaurant. He'll put the phone down and we'll show you a map to how to get to that restaurant. You'll be on a video call or web conference on your iPad or tablet device and somebody will mention a new news article they read and that news article may pop up on your screen so that you can see what they're talking about. Or you can even be in a business meeting and somebody might mention they want to see the Q3 sales numbers or something like that. And it's not unrealistic to think that that information would appear on the flat panel display next you. Now this may sound a little bit like science fiction, but I think probably within the next decade, and maybe even sooner, we're going to be living in that world or certainly we'll start to see applications that are able to do things like that. And Expect Labs is trying to build the technology, the core technology, to at least take the first step to get there. So, we're launching today. Please visit our website and check out a little bit more about our technology and also the thing that we're announcing is the availability of our upcoming iPad application called Mind Meld, which is built on this technology that we're building, and it's the first voice and video calling app for the iPad that can actually understand what you say as you talk, and hopefully, that will allow people using it to be able to very easily find and share related information as they're having a conversation on the fly. So that's all I wanted to say. Thanks for watching, and look forward to more announcements about our technology and our iPad app in the future, and please feel free to email us at infoexpectlabs**** if you have any questions about any of that. Okay, good night everyone. Talk to you later, bye.

Watch to see how the MindMeld iPad app is a smarter way to have conversations on your iPad. Expect Labs is a startup based in San Francisco that is building a technology platform designed to reinvent how we have conversations. Expect Labs is the creator of the iPad app called MindMeld, which is the first voice and video calling app that can actually understand conversations in real-time to make it easy to find and share related information as you talk. -------------- TRANSCRIPT: MindMeld is a new way to talk to your friends on your iPad. "Hey, how's it going? I can't believe you're gonna be out there in less then a week. I was thinking if the weather's good, we could go to Muir Woods or Stinson beach." As you talk, MindMeld listens. That way, anything you need is just a swipe away. MindMeld shows you things that might be related from Facebook or across the web, like pictures, videos, and articles. "Where should we have dinner?" Have you been to the Slanted Door at the Ferry Building?" "It looks perfect." That update as the conversation changes. Since MindMeld puts all of this at your fingertips sharing is easy. Drag anything onto the sharing panel and everyone in your conversation can see it instantly. MindMeld intuitively organizes everything that's been shared so you can easily find it later. "Talk to you later!" MindMeld, a smarter way to have conversations on your iPad.

Tim Tuttle answers user questions on Expect Labs' upcoming MindMeld iPad app. Expect Labs is a startup based in San Francisco that is building a technology platform designed to reinvent how we have conversations. Expect Labs is the creator of the iPad app called MindMeld, which is the first voice and video calling app that can actually understand conversations in real-time to make it easy to find and share related information as you talk. -------------- TRANSCRIPT: Hey everyone, this is Tim Tuttle from Expect Labs. So, we launched our company Expect Labs about two weeks ago and we started showing around and demoing our product. Our ipad app called Mindmeld and since we've done that, there's been a ton of positive feedback. There has been a bunch of questions people have been asking and so I wanted to take some time and answer some of the questions that people have been asking by video. But first, I want to thank everybody for the great feedback they provided about our product and about the company. It's been awesome. For all of to you guys who've talked to us on Twitter or sent us email messages, thank you very much for the support. Sounds like a lot of you guys are excited to get this product in your hands and use our technology and we are working as hard as we can to get that available for you. So, in terms of questions, let me try to answer some questions. So one of the questions that we have been getting asked a lot since we launched was, our product is called Mindmeld, and people are essentially asking can this product read my mind, maybe that's not specifically what they're asking. What they're asking is does it, when we talk about this product being able to anticipate what people need. Does that really work? Can we really look at a person's conversational history and guess at what they might be thinking of next? Well, so the answer is obviously is not, we not reading people's minds here. But what were trying to do is this, what we believe it is possible to do, is if you're listening to someone's conversation and you're understanding some of the key parts of what they're talking about. Then it's certainly possible you might be able to suggest a relevant piece of information before they actually explicitly need to ask for it. And this is what our app is trying to do, so like for example, if you're talking to a friend and you mention, my cousin Nancy is coming into town on Saturday and she really wants to take a trip to Napa Valley and go to a vineyard. The next thing that you might do during their conversation a google search to maybe find bus tours to wine country or find information about wineries you could visit. What we think is possible to do is before you actually need to type a search and find that information. Our platform, our system could potentially suggest that information for you. So you don't even need to explicitly search for stuff. If you want the information, it's available so that is immediately so you can look at it immediately and find what you want in just a couple of taps, without having to search for anything. That's what we mean when we talk about anticipatory computing and we think it's really possible in a lot of situations. So that's the answer to that question. I hope that helps, anyway thanks. Bye.

Expect Labs is the creator of the iPad app called MindMeld, which is the first voice and video calling app that can actually understand conversations in real-time to make it easy to find and share related information as you talk. -------------- TRANSCRIPT: Hi there, this is Tim Tuttle from Expect Labs. I'm taking a little time right now to answer some of the questions we've gotten from users since we have launched our company Expect Labs couple weeks ago. We started demoing our product which is an iPad application called MindMeld and it's built on a very unique technology backend that attempts to understand continuous conversations in order to be able to find and display relative information to you as you are talking. So a question that we been getting a lot is, "Hey this sounds like a Siri". Its a same thing as Siri. The answer to that is "No we are not trying to be like Siri but actually trying to apply similar technology to a very different use case. So as you know Siri is designed to try to answer questions. Due to some of the short comings of speech to text analysis, Siri does not necessarily understand you all the time. Alright, the shortcomings are if there's background noise, if Siri doesn't understand you clearly, sometimes it doesn't understand the question. Right. If you are not speaking in a language Siri knows very well or if you have a particular accent that Siri does't understand, you know, may be it will not understand you. If you are talking in technical jargon that isn't part of Siri's vocabulary, it might not understand you either.That can be a real problem if What were trying to do is answer questions because you will be disappointed if you don't get the specific answers you are looking for. What we are trying to do is very different. What we are trying to do is - We are trying to listen passively along side existing conversations that you might be having already and in the event that we are able to understand something that you say which isn't always. There's lot of times we don't understand what you are saying but when we do, we want to be able to use that information to be helpful if not possible and we wanna be helpful by providing relevant information to you before you need to ask so I think, this case can address a lot of the short comings of a product like Siri because is we don't understand what you are saying for whatever reason then your know worse off then you were before. You are just having normal conversation and if you want to find something you will have to raw search explicitly. But in cases where we do understand which can happen lot of the time then we want to use that to be more helpful. So we don't actually run an explicit search, we can find that information for you in advance so you have it. Hopefully that will be a pleasant surprise or an app that is normally not helpful at all, can be slightly more helpful in a situation where you're already having a conversation. So that's our thinking about it and we hope that we get this to work. Our first version I think works pretty well and it's definitely going to get better in the weeks, months and years as this technology improves over time. If you have any other questions, feel free ask us I'll be happy to answer them whenever I get a chance.

腾讯控股主席马化腾表示,因应中央和社会对于阻止虚假信息在网上传播的要求,腾讯公司正在研究新的方法监控腾讯微博服务上的内容。分析认为,这是找藉口为中共独裁专制辨护。 周一(31日)腾讯公司(Tencent)CEO马化腾(Pony Ma)出席北京举办的科技博客大会(TechCrunch Disrupt)时表示,正在研究新的方法监控腾讯微博上的内容,他说,公司对出现在微博上的虚假信息感到棘手,网络用户可能认为这些虚假信息是真的。 前山东大学教授孙文广认为,马化腾是为中共当局辨护。 孙文广:“所谓的虚假信息,就是民众有的揭发中共当局的一些丑行,他们讲是虚假的,为中共当局辨护。实际上现在需要造谣的、需要制造假信息的是某些官员呢,真正的人民群众当然希望知道真相。” 曾在多家媒体工作的“结石宝宝之家”发起人赵连海,也是腾迅微博的使用者,他认为,马化腾这是找理由企图扼死人说话的权力。 赵连海:“从目前来看我们总体还是对腾迅微博比较认可,认为腾迅公司坚守一些原则,但如果马化腾就这么刻意的去执行(监控微博)下去的话,我们不得不对腾迅公司,包括马化腾本人我们要有很多的看法了。” 赵连海说,用各种理由和藉口去扼死人说话的权力,应该遭到遣责和鄙视,希望更好的人站出来抵制。 孙文广则强调,微博本身正是揭露谎言的一个有利工具。 孙文广:“有很多的微博是吧,大家可以来纠正啊。就是微博是一种纠错、纠偏、辟谣的一种很有力的手段啊。” 今年9月,新浪首席执行官曹国伟说,公司正在针对新浪微博开发管控系统,以降低这个极具人气的社交媒体工具,对所谓的社会稳定构成风险。 一些微博用户抱怨新浪微博随意删除他们的言论,有人表示将拒绝使用新浪微博。 知名传媒人北风在推特上号召,发布新浪审核工作人员他们的个人信息,给他们压力,让他们认识现在从事的工作就是一种耻辱,是对历史和人民的犯罪。 知名撰稿人宋石男发表一篇题为“我为什么离开新浪微博”的文章,表示新浪微博是“创造性的限制谈话内容”,他们使用方法无非四种:删帖、屏蔽贴、禁言及删ID。 赵连海在新浪微博也经常遭删帖及封闭账户,他说已不再使用新浪。 赵连海:“新浪目前有所谓的辟谣,什么这样那样的,实际上很多的时候是把有很多真实的事情,他们去说成是假的,很多人就说嘛,真正的造谣者才是他们。中共在很多事情上颠倒黑白,颠倒是非,实际上普通民众都已经看到了。” 赵连海表示,希望腾迅公司三思。他说,今天扼杀言论于无形之中,就是为独裁专制助纣为虐。 新唐人记者李韵、郭敬采访报导。 <a href=*******www.megaupload****/?d=7TKRBD4N>*(更新)超值影视音乐影片软件电子书,超过500部多媒体合辑高速下载(含教学): *******www.megaupload****/?d=7TKRBD4N</a> 其他推荐: 神韵晚会《SHEN YUN》All New 2012 Program With Live Orchestra *******www.SHENYUNperformingarts****/shenyun2012 New Tang Dynaty Television *******english.ntdtv**** 【世事关心】七.二O *******www.ntdtv****/xtr/gb/2011/07/17/a560989.html
