About al+


al+ is a P.A.I. application that acquires and learns the user’s thinking patterns through its linkage to a broad range of SNS (Social Network System) and applications the user regularly utilizes. al+ thus generates a virtual copy of the user’s personality on the application.

al+ has three engines offering three levels of artificial intelligence and integrates these different intelligences to produce more flexible and human-like cognitive functions.

It also features macro analytical monitoring of the collective behavior of al+ users at all times, and independently learns from that virtual community of users those thought patterns which can’t be gleaned from a single user. As the number of users grows, the improvement in the precision of its community thinking will accelerate, and this will, in turn, improve the accuracy of learning the cognitive workings of individual users.

Alt Inc. will implement these features of al+ to more accurately realize the re-creation of individual user personalities through P.A.I.。
