1. Why we developed “Twipet”
Pets are considered members of the family. In daily life with pets, they show us unique and funny behaviors everyday. They can be sweet, calm, selfish, and so on. Twipet was created to help pet’s owners enjoy these cute and delightful moments even more.
Generative AI technology recognizes the scene where a pet is and generates phrases that a pet is likely to be saying in real time. This application provides a novel communication experience with your pet.
