origins

We got our start creating seamless ecosystems for Baby Boomers.  Prophet Labs is, at once, an homage to this “Prophet” generation and a recognition of the strong roles that generations can play in defining us.

With the right tools, technology can be customized for any demographic.  But, the experience is all-the-more powerful when concentrated on a particular generation.

Understanding the likes, dislikes, needs, and desires of each unique generation that’s currently in these roles is an undeniable competitive advantage – particularly, when crafting companion AI. While Zoe herself is ageless, she learns to interact with any demographic via her feedback modules.

At Prophet Labs, we bring unique talent and resources
to make our vision a reality.

We’re deep learning guys, data scientists, developers, and creative types – all with a shared understanding that the answer is always: Yes, it can be done.
