LOS GATOS, Calif., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Gatos, California-based startup Mailfeed Inc released the first version of virtual email assistant called Zero, which has been trained using Hillary Clinton's emails. That might be the only positive outcome from an email scandal everyone is already bored with. One of the challenges of creating machine-learning technology was finding a wide variety of emails that the algorithms can be trained and tested on. Hillary gave us a great opportunity to train our artificial intelligence on her emails, which became publicly available when the scandal came to light.
Another challenge in modern artificial intelligence assistants is that they typically use cloud infrastructure for processing and analyzing data, which means all personal and sensitive information should be sent to some third party servers, and god knows who might get a hand on it. Zero app, however, is developed for maximum privacy and security, and we strongly believe that what is personal should stay private. We think Hillary, especially after the DNC email breach, would agree with that too.
With Zero, we are developing an app that is smart and keeps your personal data private. Zero does not store a user's email data on third party servers, and the app communicates directly with the user's email service provider. Zero's unique machine-learning algorithms run directly on the user's phone and never send user data for processing outside of their device.
Why is releasing Zero so important to today's communication industry?
1. Zero brings all the benefits of artificial intelligence to help increase productivity to people who do not want to expose their personal data.
2. Latest email breaches and spying scandals (Yahoo, DNC and others) bring privacy and security to the forefront. This is what we stand for.
3. Zero is easy to integrate into any system and it works with your existing email server.
At the end of the day, if Mrs. Clinton had used the Zero email app and the correct email server, then she would have had a great email experience, become more productive, stayed on top of important emails, and had one less thing to worry about during her presidential campaign.
