Decoding Human Thoughts

Typewise is on a mission to make daily lives easier by decoding human thoughts. We create text prediction software that boosts enterprise productivity.

Our story

The average person spends approximately half of a typical work week on written communication. The problem is that our brain processes information about 10X faster than we’re able to type on our keyboards (400 words per minute vs. 40 words per minute on average), leading to a 90% productivity loss.

Janis and David founded Typewise in 2019 to address this problem through text prediction technology. We initially developed an award-winning keyboard app that has been downloaded 2 million times, and have since transitioned towards serving enterprise customers.

Typewise is backed by Y Combinator and continues improving the AI technology in partnership with ETH Zurich.
