Sherpa – predictive AI for your iPhone

1_iphone-late@2xSherpa is a new, predictive artificial intelligence that will soon be available for iPhones (if you want to sign up, follow this link).  It’s raised a bit over $1M seed funding so far, and promises big potential by making location a key part of its services.  For example, based on your calendar and current traffic, it would know that you’ll be late for an appointment and offer options for notifying the meeting organizer, and even alternate routes to take.  Ideally you’d be able to avoid that situation, as it would notify you when you need to leave to make it to your meeting on time.  Weather forecasts will be based not only on your current location, but where it knows you’re going.  It’s a background app, pushing information to you as needed…pretty cool stuff if they can pull it off.
