The Sky’s The Limit : A new round of funding for Julie Desk

Today is an important day for Julie Desk: We are happy to announce that we have completed our most recent round of funding with 2.5 million euros thanks to Entrepreneur Venture, SaaS Lab and Side Capital. Side Capital has once again invested, renewing its trust in our company.

4 years ago we started the Julie Desk adventure (Formerly Wepopp), and set ourselves the objective to save time. Time to be with your teams, to be present as leaders and connect with clients and time for you, for your family and friends. And in doing so, we wanted to ameliorate your quality of life and work. Because in a fast-moving world, time is essential.

Time, as it is managed today, is lost on repetitive, valueless tasks, such as agenda planning and meeting coordination. In fact, working professionals spend at least one half-day per week on this task! A number of clients have even told me that, even though they have an assistant, this task isn’t one they want to delegate because it is such a thankless job, and would get in the way of assistants’ other assignments.

How to build Empathy in AI?

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend and speak at AI Europe in London.

Lots of interesting and passionate debates on the evolution of AI. I want to get back to a question I was asked and I tried to answer during my keynote speech: How will Virtual Assistants impact the Internet and, on a larger scale, Society as a whole?

First, it’s important to define what we mean when we talk about virtual assistant based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). We are mainly influenced by science-fiction movies, and we all have our own fantasies about what our lives could look like with an assistant like « HER », capable of achieving every task we ask of her, and in the end, become a part of our daily life, and even a close friend!
