Who (the Heck) is Brian?
Brian is a digital assistant designed to help professionals with time-consuming and annoying tasks. This is done by integrating several (AI-powered) online services, hand-picked data sources, and specific domain knowledge. You ask Brian for help via email (e.g., “Hi, translate the slides from English to German!”) and he delivers within 3 minutes, 24/7.
Who is Brian Designed for?
Hugh Hefner said he has built his magazine for himself and hoped that there would be more people like him willing to read such a paper. Even though the AskBrian founder is not really a Hefner kind of guy, the basic idea was the same; his thinking was: “As a management consultant, I would love to have someone like Brian doing all the tedious work, so I could dedicate more time to the exciting stuff: talk to people, do the analytical work and be creative in finding answers for the really tricky questions. If Brian can help me, maybe he can help my peers too.”
