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.
