Introduction and sustainability
In 2017, after many conversations with pedagogical people, Maryia Hurkova and Steffen Luypaert came up with the idea of the practical language task game "Language Hero" in which a student literally talks to a virtual character and gradually receives feedback on the use of the language he or she learns. That was the kickoff of the development of a unique chatbot platform and unique speech technology, which form the basis of the company. The company does it’s own research and strongly believe in collaboration with universities. They want to use the knowledge that is available as much as possible to make better applications.
Linguineo offers an unique chatbot platform that goes very far in modeling personalities and open conversations. Unique speech technology that recognizes speech 3 to 4 times better than Google for trained contexts. The apps should be fun. In cooperation with their partner Curious Cats they try to add the game element to all the applications.
Linguineo is an online supporting platform for language learning. As consumers now place greater value on sustainable online shops and products, then it was advisable to make their own webshop a shade greener as well. After all, such measures not only protect the environment, but also provide for additional revenue and higher profits.
Values and standards
As a tech and data driven company, Linguineo has underlying powerful chatbot and speech technology using the latest innovations in artificial intelligence. Their chatbot engine is better at open conversations than other chatbot engines and their contextualized speech recognition recognizes speech with much higher accuracy than generally
available speech recognition for trained contexts.
Scalability and resilience
Linguineo is a promising B2B startup specialized in helping non-native speakers acquire fluency. They especially want to help people in bottleneck professions such as nurses and construction workers through task-based learning. As a founder Steffen Luypaert has assembled a diverse and passionate team with which they will bring a new way of learning languages to the market. They differentiate themselves in 3 ways: fluency over perfection, scientifically backed effectiveness and a fun and interactive experience.
