We were founded by Jasmine Anteunis, Julien Blancher, Paul Renvoisé and Patrick Joubert in September 2015. The team is growing every month, and now there’s 18 of us!
Jasmine, Julien and Paul were students in 42, one of the leading French coding schools, at the time it was founded. They met Patrick, who, with a successful startup experience, was growing interested in AI. At the same time conversation and language were on the verge of becoming a new interface, but technologies available were complicated to use.
An interface between man and machine, but using the technologies available was complicated. The team sat down to imagine a language technology and collaborative platform where conversational interfaces could easily be developed: that was the beginning of Recast.AI.
Artificial intelligence is the continuity of human augmentation. We’ve been improving ourselves with different tools for ages. We have watches, glasses, or makeup, we’ve grown from the typewriter to the laptop, from the carriage to the self-driving car. Artificial intelligence is a way into automating processes that are tedious and time-consuming: filling in your taxes, ordering groceries, getting information.
If we power these tasks with artificial intelligence, imagine the time we'd gain to do things we can add more value? Things that require critical thinking, creativity, empathy or management are incredibly important to human evolution. Artificial intelligence allows us more time to focus on these things, which is why we need it.
