“Artificial intelligence would be the ultimate version of Google. The ultimate search engine that would understand everything on the web. It would understand exactly what you wanted, and it would give you the right thing. We’re nowhere near doing that now. However, we can get incrementally closer to that, and that is basically what we work on.”
Helios Life Enterprises has brought a brand new technology to Wall Street and sees the world just as Google does; incrementally changing the way we interact with the machine for everyone.
Unlocking the power of the voice
With its latest innovations in handling voice, Helios can advance organizations that have a wide variety of projects in the voice domain. This enables them to unlock the power of voice.
In 2019, Helios launched a product specifically designed for hedge funds. This changed the way the quantitative world understands communications. This year they’ve launched Mercury, a product designed to unlock tonal analytics and tonal sentiment through a next-generation REST API.
The human voice is a common mode of conversation that we use; a token of our feelings and our personality. The smallest precision in the human voice can indicate the speaker’s deepest feelings, subliminal considerations, and surprisingly fleeting states of mind.
With that said, the human voice may be the most impressive determinant of one’s actual message. This is in consistency or disagreement with the actual words that are said. With incredible scales of exploration in neurolinguistics and neuroscience, the Helios team has created a profound advancement in our human-machine world.
A message is more than merely its words
In this ever-connected world, video and voice based communication is increasing at a rapid pace. These digitized channels require us to think beyond just the words that are said. Why couldn’t tone of voice and the Helios tonal analytics be incorporated into Zoom apps? Google meet? Sales calls? Or even Amazon Alexa?
The organization has gone through many affirmations of Mercury’s growth, focusing on them to reflect the client base of needs across the planet while externally adapting to the company’s long-standing core mission.
In 2020, CEO, Sean Austin, said, “We are having a massive impact on the quantitative investment world and really changing how markets work. This is how we get started but we will incrementally advance the domain of tonal sentiment and tonal analytics. We’re just getting started.”
The Helios group took what they had gained in understanding and took it one step further with this second product, Mercury: a completely different channel for continuous audio handling, virtual scanning, and alpha gen. Mercury brings the ability to analyze your own audio at scale and leverage all the unique next-generation research that Helios’ owns.
Whether or not you are ready to jump into tonal analytics, the visionaries of the world are already taking note. The time is now to unlock the power of voice.
