The first wearable device and software platform with embedded mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) connectivity built to deliver personal artificial intelligence (AI) services leverages Optiva BSS, marking the beginning of a new chapter in personal technology

TORONTO, Dec. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Humane, an innovative experience company that recently launched Ai Pin, has chosen Optiva's (TSX: OPT) full-stack BSS solution to help power the billing, network integration and value-added services for its users. Ai Pin's seamless integration into daily routines will enable users to take the full power of AI everywhere, elevating your interactions with the world through its growing list of capabilities.

With Ai Pin, Humane is defining a new class of devices to bring AI to a personal level. Optiva BSS Platform, available as cloud-native SaaS solution, will support personalized experiences for Ai Pin customers through its modular and unified end-to-end suite of integrations and services deployed on the public cloud. Optiva’s software and its years of global telecom industry expertise will empower Humane to focus on its vision and deliver a simplified, intuitive customer experience.

"The Ai Pin is our first step in building for a future where AI is embedded in our daily lives in ways which are screenless, seamless and sensing. We’re proud to work with Optiva to make this a reality, harnessing their BSS platform, telecom industry expertise and our shared passion for intelligent innovation," said Bethany Bongiorno, CEO and Co-founder of Humane.

Humane’s new Ai Pin is powered by Cosmos, a new operating system tailored for the AI era, with a software framework that eliminates the need for traditional app downloads. The Ai Pin delivers a conversational experience without the need for a screen or wake words and does not require being paired with a smartphone or other companion device. To provide wireless service for Ai Pin, Humane is launching its own MVNO.

"From our first meeting with Humane, we were inspired to work together to bring Ai Pin to life. Optiva is proud to partner with Humane to integrate AI into daily experiences, leveraging our ability to integrate with multiple network providers globally at the scale needed for this groundbreaking innovation," said Robert Stabile, CEO of Optiva.
