Malaysian AI startup VOX announced that it has secured a $250,000 investment from Silicon Valley after successfully harnessing ChatGPT with Sharly.ai.
The investment will be used to cover operational costs for the first 50,000 users of the platform, allowing the team to concentrate on enhancing user experience and workflows.
Simone Macario, CEO of VOX, stated that the platform aims to revolutionize workflows by seamlessly connecting to proprietary data sources. The startup is currently in talks with strategic partners to achieve this goal.
Macario also emphasized that privacy and security are crucial to development, given the sensitivity of organizational data.
The new product, Sharly AI, tackles the issue of time-consuming information parsing, where key facts are often hidden in long documents, audio recordings, or videos.
In today’s fast-paced world, where professionals rush between back-to-back meetings with only small screens in their hands, the average worker spends almost five hours per day reading documents and emails.
Sharly AI aims to streamline workflows and boost productivity so that professionals can concentrate on making decisions.
In a world where AI and generative applications are reshaping industries, Sharly AI is believed to be a game-changer, and VOX is expected to be well on its way to cracking the global market.
The potent combination of Generative AI-based technology, a dedicated team, and ambitious goals has the potential to transform decision-making processes in organizations.
Davide Selvaggio, CTO of VOX, stated that while ChatGPT and similar models provide simple APIs to connect to, they have inherent limitations.
The team’s previous experience with similar products helped them fine-tune the model to deal with thousands of pages while staying grounded in factual knowledge.
Sharly AI is expected to revolutionize productivity and decision-making processes in organizations, and VOX’s platform has the potential to transform workflows and become a significant player in the global market.
