What will the future of the human-AI experience look like?

a·kin’s mission is the responsible co-evolution of humanity and artificial intelligence.
We work in deep space habitats and the human home, creating personal AI able to handle complex tasks, be long-duration companions and optimize an environment.

Thesis on the future

AI will solve more and more complex problems

We will hand over our day-to-day decisions to AI

We will form relationships with Personal AI

RESEARCH THEME NO.1

Core AI / AGI

We place heavy focus on unsupervised and semi-supervised learning technologies that will empower the next generation of scalable autonomous AI, such as goal-oriented reinforcement learning, unsupervised ontology acquisition and advanced dynamic associative memory. We are working towards a fusion of these technologies to enable AI to efficiently and independently handle reasoning, complex problem solving and decision making.

RESEARCH THEME NO.2

Human-AI relationship

The opaqueness of the human mind poses a great challenge to human-machine interaction. We are exploring a synergy of neuroscience, cognitive theories, behavioural science and multimodal learning to develop AI that understands humans. This spans language, emotion, culture, values and goal alignment in order to achieve deep trusted relationships between humans and AI.

RESEARCH THEME NO.3

State optimisation

Our approach is to model AI, humans and their environment as a hierarchical network of resources, events and relationships that AI can use to optimise state space. By measuring and optimising according to shared goals, AI will be able to improve its own effectiveness in order to enhance the well-being of humans and manage their environment.
