Co-evolution of technology and humanity

Our assistive robots help people living with a physical disability to manage their home,

Core AI / AGI

We build AI to be ethical from the ground up.

At aKin, we build responsible AI that think and reason more like a human, and act with deep emotional intelligence. This matters now more than ever as we enter an era where AI take on a larger role in everyday life, and make more decisions on our behalf. Our technology will help people run their homes and support their goals.

Epigenesis

We have developed a new approach called ‘epigenesis,’ which refers to the scientific concept of how an organism can change and adapt in interaction with its environment. We have three key research areas for our Core AI:
1
Emotional Intelligence

aKin's intelligent assistants combine a deeper level of understanding with reasoning capabilities to support complex tasks, and to help people make more objective, informed, and responsible decisions.

2
Autonomous Reasoning

Harnessing a fusion of modern neurosciences and chaos theory approaches, aKin's innovative state-based interactive AI transcend the shallow world of chatbots, and enable human-like grounded reasoning, interaction, and problem solving.

3
Habitat as a Complex System

The range of applications for aKin's AI spans the most ambitious tasks involving multi-modal, multi-user interaction, and complex system optimisation, from artificial habitats to our own homes.

Our Trusted
Partners

aKin SPACE

We deploy and benchmark our AI into the most difficult environment we can think of: SPACE.

We have been awarded a multi-million dollar, multi-year contract, where our AI are being used as ‘crew’ for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, to support the advanced manufacture of spacecraft. We have also won a large grant from the Australian Space Agency, and are using that to train our AI to take on these different roles.

Helper

Support complex tasks, autonomous problem solving. Provide both cognitive and physical help. Embodied in an autonomous
helper robot.

Inspector

Understand what is happening in the environment. Look for anomalies and create alerts. AI Analytics. Embodied in a swarm of smaller robots
with sensors.

Manager

Ambient AI brain, with an overarching view of the whole environment. Understands people, processes, events and the habitat as a whole system. Embodied in a ‘brain’ represented by an abstract avatar.

Human-AI relationship

The opaqueness of the human mind poses a great challenge to human-machine interaction.

We are working with a synergy of neuroscience, cognitive theories, behavioural science, and multimodal learning to develop AI that understand humans. This spans language, emotion, culture, values, and goal alignment in order to achieve deep and trusted relationships between humans and AI.

aKin Home

Assistive robot companions to support people
with disabilities

We have signed agreements with a number of large disability organisations to deliver tens of thousands of home AI in the form of avatars and robots with deep emotional intelligence. They do things like organise schedules, support complex tasks, help with healthy living and meal planning, support social connection, and help people achieve their goals. 

Aim

Assistive robot to do tasks around activities of daily living, particularly for those with mobility issues and
cognitive disabilities.

Purpose

Our robots will give people independence and empower them to complete complex tasks in and around the home.

Motivation

Our assistive robots will enable an enjoyable and healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally.

State optimisation

Our approach is to model AI, humans, and their
environment as gravity wells in an event space.

We do this to map resources, events, and relationships that AI can use to optimise state space and traverse events more effectively over time. By measuring and optimising according to shared goals, the AI will be able to improve their effectiveness in order to enhance the well-being of humans and manage their environment.
