Flowstorm Talk To Poppy!


We envision enriching human society with artificial beings that may augment the reality of human interaction. Our Digital Personas are forging the next era of conversation between humans and machines. They will replace chatbots and open entirely new opportunities and potential. We are passionate about Conversational AI. We are passionate about changing the world of voice assistance.

Imagine a future where human-like personas handle all your voice assistance needs. Today’s reality is still far from the vision; there is a gap between developing technology and the human-like experience PromethistAI, our know-how, experience and our products bridge the gap to allow the creation of digital conversational personas.

Our platform combines the best of two worlds: AI and human creativity. We use state-of-the-art algorithms from the AI world to process ambiguous human language and drive the conversation. At the same time, human creativity is used to fine tune the interaction and deliver the best user experience using AI-driven dialogue.

"We shape our tools and then the tools shape us."

The Flowstorm Platform is a set of SaaS development tools and software components for creating smart conversational & multimodal AI applications.

Our unique authoring tools and runtime components take full advantage of various NLP technologies: suggesting alternatives, summarizing content, scraping the internet, and accessing knowledge databases.

Additionally, we rely on sub-dialogues which serve as templates for frequently repeated conversational situations. These techniques and tools help us make the development and operation process of conversational apps faster and more effective. All of this is embedded into one unique conversational platform available as a cloud service.

Poppy is the first virtual persona who truly cares how you feel.

TalkToPoppy! is the result of a ten-month endeavor of our interdisciplinary team of researchers, programmers, psychologists and linguists.

The prototype of TalkToPoppy! is based on the conversation with the virtual mental health assistant Poppy, who helps users orientate themselves in their own feelings and better understand how emotions work. This method is grounded in scientific research in the field of psychology and it is aimed at improving the mental state. The concept was based on the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy by an expert team of psychologists and therapists.
