The Hypotenuse humor: An AI-driven tale of content and comedy:
Picture this: An AI platform that not only optimizes your business processes but also adds a dash of humor to your content creation. Meet Hypotenuse AI, where innovation meets wit, and every line of code seems to have a punchline.
Hypotenuse's comic genius and content mastery:
So, who's the mastermind behind this tech comedy show? Let's introduce you to the dynamic duo: Joshua Wong, the former applied research scientist at Amazon's AI team, and a team of around a dozen tech-savvy comedians—I mean, engineers.
In a chat with Co-founder Low Lin-Hui, she spills the beans on Hypotenuse's origin story. It all began with a simple chat function designed to help customers navigate e-commerce websites. Fast forward, and Hypotenuse has transformed into a content powerhouse, offering tools like Content Detective, Hypo Art, and even a blog article wizard. We're left wondering, can Hypotenuse write stand-up comedy too?
Hypotenuse's toolbox: Comedy and content, all in one:
- Content Detective: Think of it as Sherlock Holmes, but for content. Research up-to-date, factual content from the web without breaking a sweat.
- Hypo Art: Turning mundane into masterpieces, this tool creates images and artwork that Picasso would envy.
- Blog Article Wizard: Need a 1,500-word article in the time it takes to make a cup of coffee? Hypotenuse has your back.
The Co-founder's take: No replacement for human creativity:
Low Lin-Hui puts it humorously, "We're not aiming to replace humans. I don’t think anything will ever replace that level of creativity, direction, and strategy that you need from a human to drive a content process... But, it’s more of a tool to get the grease into the cogs so that things move a bit smoother."
Let's look at their cost and get a brief idea of their output with our input:
