Bi-Weekly Updates: Measurable AI Alpha Version Will Be Launched Soon
1. The development of Measurable AI is going smoothly. We already finished developing APIs for account register, activation, and login. In addition, the speed of email processing and data analysis have been further improved. Now our platform can process 150,000 emails per minute. At the same time, the engineering team is also optimizing Measurable AI’s receipt parsing engine, which now can parse in-app purchase receipts with a success rate of 100%. It can also quickly parse the receipts of the ride-sharing apps Uber and Lyft in different formats.
The Alpha version of Measurable AI is expected to go live in early November. In the next following weeks, we will keep our community updated about the details of the Alpha test.
2.A Chinese TV Series Entrepreneurial Age (创业时代) is currently on air. This is the first ever Chinese TV show that reveals cruel battles between tech titans and small startups. Many consider it the Chinese version Silicon Valley. What’s more, it is based on a true experience of MDT team. In 2011 the Chinese tech giant Wechat(Tencent) stole the brilliant idea of voice messaging app from MDT team, which was called Talkbox back then. Wechat basically copied and pasted TalkBox’s key feature, “push to talk”, which played a significant role in the success of Wechat and the failure of TalkBox.
After TalkBox, we came to Silicon Valley in the U.S. and still wanted to create a messaging app that can facilitate online communications and bring people closer around the world. We started to work on an email messenger app called MailTime. After MailTime debuted at TechCrunch Startup Battlefield SF in 2014 and graduated from Silicon Valley startup accelerator Y Combinator in 2016, it has hit over 7 million downloads worldwide so far.
We are currently working on a special version of MailTime called Magical Crystal（魔晶）, which has the same name as the app developed in the TV show. We launched it on October 21th, and it now ranks No.2 among the most popular social networking apps in the Apple Store.
Magic Crystal is an attempt to return to the Chinese market. Later, we will consider adding functions related to MDT in the messaging app, such as MyMDT, which enables more people to know and understand the MDT ecosystem through the app, and opt-in the economy. The bigger market and more users Magic Crystal has, the more potential data contributors MDT can get. It also means Measurable AI can obtain more anonymous big data to produce accurate and valuable consumer insights in the future.
