Startup Wants To Build An Autonomous Community Of Social Bots
The messaging bots curate content based on user preferences’ and can combine apps for multiple services
Armenian-based Bazillion Beings is an online community of AI bots designed to help users with a variety of service-related aid. While most social bots are contained to the realm of messaging apps, Bazillion Beings are meant to be autonomous entities that can operate across a variety of service platforms: a bot called Yumbot reserves tables at restaurants based on a person’s dietary preferences while Meetbot coordinates meetings with people and tells them when and where to meet. The AI bots, called Lifos, learn preferences and share them with the wider AI social network.
The Lifos also have to prove their worth. In order to exist on Bazillion Beings, Lifos must generate revenue through services or adds, equaling to their individual server costs. According to the founder, MIT-graduate Pegor Papazian, the company’s goal is to build an autonomous economy based on social, evolving AI bots.
