Our story

Launching in Taiwan

Albert and Curtis met at National Taiwan University and agreed: "Enterprise contact centers don't have accurate NLP to serve non-English markets!" Henceforth, Proto was born.
  • Developed algorithm for machine understanding of cross-lingual chats.
  • Developed deep-learning process for reducing 3 month manual chat structuring to 1 week.

Scaling in Southeast Asia

Proto released its Financial and Energy solutions, invested in the AICX product suite expansion, and added languages such as Vietnamese, Thai and Malay.
  • Served first Fortune 500 enterprise, with over 1000 sub-clients.
  • Won the iGaming Asia Congress Innovation Launchpad.
  • Financial solution won the Central Banking Regtech & Fintech AI Prize.

Venturing into Africa

Proto expanded its AICX solutions from Southeast Asia into sub-Saharan Africa, and added languages such as Yoruba, Hausa, and Swahili.
  • Partnered with five major central banks in all regions of sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Grew the global population covered by the consumer protection impact area to 126 million.

Including everyone with AICX

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, and the societal inequalities that it deepened, Proto is focused on AICX deployments with a mandate to include underserved communities.
  • Adopted a regulator-to-operator approach to align with the inclusion mandate of supervisory authorities in priority countries.
  • Gathered massive language-domain NLP training data for Tagalog, Cebuano, Kinyarwanda, Swahili, Bemba, and more.

Automating first contact

Proto was the first to deliver AICX technology to the recently arrived alien species from Kepler-452b, staying true to its mission to include everyone in the conversational AI revolution.
