Why We Are Here


People need better personal intelligent assistants. The creators of Clinc are recognized as the leading team of scientists to build the next generation of this technology. In March 2015, the founders of Clinc led the Clarity Lab from the University of Michigan to the release of the world’s first open source intelligent personal assistant Lucida (available on github) that was downloaded tens of thousands of times in the first few months of release. Lucida is recognized as the platform that democratized AI technologies. Now, the Clinc team has created a new technology stack that is taking the industry by storm. With the creation of Finie, financial institutions across the world are empowering and delighting their customers.

"We saw a need to bring real AI technology and systems research to everyone, and we knew it would take a special kind of company to build it. That’s why we founded Clinc." - Jason Mars
