At Aryia, we are leveraging blockchain to disrupt the invasive smart speaker industry by building the first blockchain-powered smart speaker with focus on privacy while creating an entire ecosystem around it.

We answer today’s data privacy concerns by giving users control over their data while also rewarding them for any involvement in the Aryia ecosystem. Rewards can later be spent within the decentralized voice-skills marketplace.

Aryia aims to provide a powerful voice enabled A.I. solution for both individuals and corporations, either in the shape of a proprietary smart speaker or, in future, as a third-party device.

Our goal is to disrupt the smart-speaker marketplace and challenge today's security and data collection practices by letting individuals take control of their own private information.

Quirk founded in 2017 and has become a preferred partner for SAP to build chatbots for Utilities and Banking industries. Quirk Conversation Platform is the most cost-effective means of enhancing the customer experience. Quirk helps companies to raise application stickiness and ROI by providing business intelligence to connect to enterprise applications.

We are building a full plug-and-play Enterprise-grade Conversation Platform. While other conversation services have entered the market, the vast majority of them are nothing more than a framework to process conversations. Custom application and middleware development is still required to utilize these services. The Quirk Conversation Platform (QCP) seeks to remove these additional hassles and development time, by providing point-and-click integration with any exposed Web Service API, and an ever increasing array of user-facing chat applications. Each bot can process data from any number of APIs in the same conversation, meaning QCP can truly create a one-stop, user-friendly, conversational interface for either customer-facing or internal business solutions.
