About Soul Machines

Co-founded by Academy Award winning 'Avatar' and 'King-Kong' animator, Dr Mark Sagar, Soul Machines is a groundbreaking AI company based in Auckland. Building a HumanOS for Artificial Intelligence, Soul Machines' technology allows us to communicate, connect and relate to AI in ways that make it accessible, contextual and trusted.

By creating a new type of Artificial Intelligence called Experiential Learning - and the world’s first Digital Brain - technology is radically humanised, delivering personalised human-like experience and connections at scale and operating independently. Soul Machines' breakthroughs in Experiential Learning add human intelligence to AI, taking interactions beyond algorithms and enabling digital beings to accumulate experiences, learn, and respond emotionally.

Their Digital DNA Studio creates incredibly lifelike, emotionally responsive digital humans which are then autonomously animated with a cloud-based, AI-powered Digital DNA Engine. No actors, no motion capture cameras - just incredibly life-like interactions between your brand and your customers. Experience AI like never before.
