The company Fonetica uses phonetics based natural language processing (NLP) to semantically understand Asian languages written in the Roman script (eg. Roman Urdu and Roman Hindi). As companies want to create more conversational chatbots with their customers, understanding them remains a critical issue as many Asians write their native languages in Roman script. Fonetica means "phonetics" in Italian.

NIKKA: Micro-loans and micro-insurance

The company nikka uses artificial intelligence to assess risk and price micro-insurance for farmers in Asia. It also recommends interventions to lower risk to farmers who receive directions on their mobile phones. The platform relies on hyper-spectral and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image processing as primary data. nikka means "small" in Punjabi.

It was awarded a place in Infocomm Media Development Authority's Pixel Lab in Singapore and featured in Forbes magazine.



MOVERA: Mobility-as-a-Service

The company Movera revolutionises sustainable transportation by developing a multi-modal integrated transportation platform using artificial intelligence. Movera means "move to" in Spanish.
