Generative AI
that cares

Akin is an empathic Generative AI that helps you runs your home.
“Imagine a world in which we are kinder to ourselves, to each other, and to the planet.. ..with an AI that cares about our goals and our dreams, and can help us achieve them.”

We started out in the most difficult habitat of all: Space

" the coming years we hope to use the aKin AI on long-duration space flights to not only help astronauts detect and manage problems in their environment, but also be a companion to them during what can be a lonely period.”
Tom Soderstrom CIO, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab

Now our applications are expanding to every home
