Your personal voice AI

Martin is a better Siri with an LLM brain. Through voice conversations, Martin builds a personal relationship with you and helps out with tasks that matter. As your knowledgeable confidant, Martin can chat with you about your week, help you learn about a topic, manage your calendar, and eventually manage everything from your emails to your grocery shopping.

TLDR: Martin is like Jarvis in an app. Through voice conversations, Martin builds a personal relationship with you. He can find information, brainstorm ideas, or just chat with you about your week! You can also ask Martin to send you notes or set reminders in any conversation.

Dawson, Harsh, and Arjun studied Computer Science at Yale, MIT, and CMU respectively for 1 year before dropping out to build Martin.

The three of us have been hacking together since 6th grade. We’ve built countless apps, websites, and robots together. And, we all share a childhood dream of having our own Jarvis!
