Swiss deep tech company Typewise has announced a new collaboration with Professor Ryan Cotterell of ETH Zurich.  

The partnership sees Typewise joining forces with Professor Cotterell of ETH Zurich’s Department of Computer Science.

The partnership will revolve around AI text prediction technology with particular research going into advanced sentence prediction, enterprise customization, grammar assistance and voice support. The work is funded by the Swiss Innovation Agency, Innosuisse, and is part of the ‘Future of Mobile Interaction’ project.

Janis Berneker, Typewise CTO and Co-founder comments: “Our collaboration allows us to work with one of the world’s most advanced centres for this type of AI which is helping us build a world class product. We are very excited about this new partnership especially as our previous work with ETH led to us creating text prediction AI which outperforms that of Google’s and Apple’s, which we filed a patent for in January 2022. We believe this latest partnership will generate further significant advancements in this area.”  

Previously, Typewise collaborated with the ETH professorship for computer science of Thomas Hofmann, whose research expertise includes machine learning, deep learning, and natural language understanding. The work assisted the development of Typewise’s AI text prediction engine which now powers Typewise’s AI Writing Assistant, their API, and their keyboard app which has been downloaded 2 million times and won a CES Innovation Award two years running. The partnership led to two ETH AI researchers – George Roberts PhD, and Luca Campanella – joining Typewise as full-time employees to lead the company’s AI team.
