Humans are social creatures. Loneliness and social isolation affects us deeply – both physically and mentally. 

And it’s incredibly widespread. More than one-third of adults suffer from loneliness, rising to almost half of those aged 65+. Because many people will be hiding their symptoms from undue embarrassment, you can imagine these figures are almost certainly on the conservative side.

Already overburdened healthcare staff are tasked with seeing patients who are simply lonely or socially isolated, while an AARP study estimates that these two issues alone cost Medicare $6.7 billion annually. For all these reasons and more, it’s time to face the issue head on.

What are UneeQ Companions?

UneeQ Companions use the most time-tested and universal interface that’s ever existed – the human face and voice. We combine that with expressiveness, warmth, empathy, friendliness and everything else that makes real human interactions special.

Your UneeQ Companion provides people with dynamic, diverse, engaging, open-ended and interactive conversations whenever they’re needed. 

These digital humans can give expertly curated help, including tips on coping with loneliness or social isolation. And they can provide indirect support, by simply being a friendly face to speak to, 24/7.

UneeQ Companions aren’t designed to completely solve the problems of loneliness and social isolation. But, by using experiences designed around real human needs, they’re an effort to turn the tide on some of these urgent challenges beyond what is possible by other digital channels.

A digital human is always around, night or day, 365 days a year.

Humanlike conversation, which includes tone of voice, facial expressions, body language and other non-verbal cues.

Real-time, deep conversations about virtually any topic.

High accessibility, using multimodal content – speech, text and visuals – and speaking 70+ languages.

Dynamic interactions like daily quizzes, dietary recommendations or even guidance on how to use prescribed medicines.
