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.
