The Launch of A New Industry-leading AI Keyboard by Typewise

Zurich, Switzerland, 28 April: Pioneering Swiss deep tech startup, Typewise, are launching their next-generation AI keyboard app for smartphones today.

With all-new autocorrection technology, patent pending, Typewise 3.0 has been developed to further speed up smartphone typing, with the support of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, enhancing its exacting autocorrect abilities, language detection, and full data privacy.  

Typewise’s successful concept is powered by a patented ‘honeycomb’ style keyboard layout designed specifically for smartphones to increase efficiency as user experience, conventional keyboards result in around 1 in 5 words having a typo. Typewise reduces those typos by 4X and results in 33% faster typing speeds.

In addition to helping users type faster with fewer errors, Typewise can automatically detect the language of which the user is currently typing and switch to that language, preventing any incorrect words from entering the user’s work, without having to change the language in the settings. This recognition software is so acutely sensitive, it even recognizes and assists users when they type in a dialect or use colloquialisms; this ground-breaking feature is currently available in 40+ languages, with more on the way. 

This new system provides a higher percentage of accurately corrected words than other leading keyboard players such as Gboard and SwiftKey. This ground-breaking autocorrection technology was jointly developed with top AI engineers from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), one of the world’s leading institutes for technology and engineering.  

This complex technology has all been developed with AI algorithms that are capable of running on-device, which safeguards user privacy. Most importantly, neither the Typewise app, nor third party apps, can access any typing data; a complete break from the existing market. 

The development of this game-changing technology follows an informative study conducted by Cambridge University and ETH Zürich. The study looked at data from 37,000 people’s typing habits and analyzed the difference from participants who used autocorrect technology and those that did not; the findings of the study concluded that choosing word predictions manually does not speed up typing, but true contextual autocorrect technologies do speed up typing – and that’s where Typewise comes in.

To date, Typewise has about 1,000,000 downloads with 250,000 active users, impressing the elite panel of industry expert judges at the CES Innovation Awards, a program owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, which annually honors outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology.

Typewise co-founder and CEO, David Eberle, comments: ‘We are thrilled to be releasing Typewise V3.0. The team have worked hard to build ever-more powerful features into our award-winning autocorrection technology, resulting in a new version of Typewise that is a great feat in design, efficiency and accuracy. We are proud to have worked closely with our user community on our new release, to get a good understanding of what’s needed by different language users across the world.

‘Typewise began as a solution to make daily life easier, to put a stop to annoying typos and cumbersome typing and our mission is to change the way we input information into our devices and our latest offering brings us ever closer to realizing our goal.’

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
