Disrupt NY two thousand sixteen

While Siri presently lives on the phones of hundreds of millions of Apple users, and a few people are responsible for helping obtain the presently omnipresent assistant off the ground.

One of those people is Dag Kittlaus, co-founder and CEO of Siri and presently co-founder and CEO of Viv, a new platform-based AI product.

Dag is the CEO and co-founder of Viv, which he started with Siri vets Adam Cheyer and Chris Brigham. Previously, he was the Co-founder and CEO of Siri after spinning the technology out of Stanford Research Institute in 2007.

After Apple acquired Siri in two thousand-tenth Dag became the Director of iPhone Apps at Apple running the Siri and speech recognition teams. Adam and Chris joined him there in various roles until they all left to found the following generation of AI. In the fall of two thousand twelve Dag co-founded Viv, which aims to open artificial intelligence to the world and “enable everyone to speak to everything”. 

We’re excited to announce Dag will show up onstage at Disrupt NY two thousand sixteen to speak about the future of artificial intelligence and, in a world first, give us a demo that shows off the power of what they’ve built with Viv.

While the startup has’t officially launched, its goal is to become a platform for developers to add an intelligent, conversational interface to just about anything. 

Dag has a deep history in the mobile industry. Before Viv and Siri, he held executive roles at Telenor Mobile and Motorola, where he founded its Interactive Media Group. Now, he’s on his second consecutive AI product, Viv. Viv takes up where Siri left off, providing a powerful conversational interface that can be used to achieve just about anything. That extensibility comes from the application of major advances in program synthesis — allowing AI systems to automatically write their own code to achieve new tasks.

Where Siri was an application that was made a service, Dag and the Viv team wish to manufacture an underlying infrastructure that allows AI to be poured into apps, systems and experiences. Viv is counting on this broad application of AI to be as omnipresent as a look for button, and they’ve created some very genuine apps that utilize the system. If you wish to look them in action for the first time, and obtain a glimpse at the brain that runs Viv behind the scenes (and we don’t imply Dag,) then we’ll look you at Disrupt NY on May 9-11 in Ruddy Hook, Brooklyn. You can purchase tickets here.

Dag joins a our growing list of speakers appearing at Disrupt NY that includes Kik’s Ted Livingston, Starfish Media’s Soledad O’Brien, and Amazon Echo VP Mike George.
