The next generation of virtual assistants

At Twenty Billion Neurons (TwentyBN), we're building the next generation of virtual assistants that are visually enabled and interactive.

Millie, the world's first AI avatar, is a life-sized intelligent assistant who can see, understand, and interact with users.

At the core of Millie's intelligence is our human behavior understanding technology, powered by our global video platform that collects high-quality, annotated data for deep learning.

TwentyBN is recognized as a CB Insights Top 100 AI startups in 2019 and a Gartner Cool Vendor in AI Core Technologies in 2018. Our technology is trusted by the world's leading businesses in technology, automotive, and consumer products, as well as over 40 of the world's top 100 universities.

Our founders have 30 years of combined experience in deep learning and software development. Yoshua Bengio, the Turing Award recipient in 2018, is TwentyBN's founding advisor.
