Michigan Startup Gets Customer Traction for Conversational AI Research

In the wake of Amazon’s boffo Alexa voice debut, a University of Michigan team published pioneering research on building conversational AI, attracting a wave of customer interest. Jason Mars, a professor advising them, suggested they form a startup. And with that, Ann Arbor, Michigan-based conversational AI startup Clinc was born. Clinc’s conversational AI platform enables customers to build voice applications — like in-car voice features, fast-food restaurant order services or personal banking assistants.
