Expect Labs has pioneered the field of anticipatory computing
Our company has been widely recognized as a leader in the fast-emerging field of anticipatory computing. MIT Technology Review named us as one of the world's "50 Smartest Companies" of 2014, and we were included in Gartner's "Cool Vendors of 2013" list. MindMeld was selected as “Best in Show” at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show and was featured by Popular Science as one of the “Hottest Gadgets” of 2013. We were also selected as a finalist for the 2013 CODiE Award for Best Mobile Device Application, in addition to being finalists at the 2012 TechCrunch Disrupt startup competition, the 2013 CES Mobile App Showdown, and the 2013 SXSW Innovative Technology Accelerator
We are backed by some of Silicon Valley’s most well-known investors and some of the technology industry’s largest and most influential companies, including Google, Samsung, Intel, Telefónica, Liberty Global, Greylock Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, IDG Ventures, KPG Ventures, Quest Venture Partners and several prominent angels. Our technology partners include Nuance Communications and Factual.
The MindMeld API is the first technology platform to enable a new class of intelligent, anticipatory applications. We are entering a world that is filled with connected devices. In this world, when we need information, we will no longer have to resort to typing a query or asking a question. Instead, we will be able to allow our devices and apps to pay attention continuously to the things we read and write, the places we visit, and the things we say and hear. By interpreting these contextual signals, our apps and devices will become much better at finding the information we need, in some cases, before we even need to ask.
Our company was founded in 2011 by successful, repeat entrepreneurs and our team includes some of the industry’s leading experts in language understanding and large-scale, statistical search. The team includes PhDs and world-class researchers from places like the MIT AI Lab, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, and Bell Labs. We have filed several patents covering our core technology.
