About HoloAsh (English below)
HoloAshはメンタルヘルスのためのAI Friendの開発をするスタートアップです。
Creating an AI friend for those with potentially ADHD or mental health issues.

In the U.S. alone, 10M adults have ADHD and 44M adults have other mental disorders, and they're feeling overstressed and loneliness.
People seeking out mental health treatment know that it can be a hassle and very expensive.

そこで、AI Friendを提供し、セラピーを24時間低コストでアクセス可能にするプロダクトです。
So our AI friend will make mental health support accessible anytime anywhere without breaking the bank.
If you're in a bad mood and need someone to talk to, our AI friend will help you to make positive decisions.

---How does it work?---

We are creating an NLP brain using Attention / CNN / RNN / LSTM combining with cognitive science.
Our communication engine is based on Motivational Interviewing, a counseling approach that empowers people to find motivation and think in a positive way.

Why we do

  • CEO Yoshua Kishi

-About HoloAsh
We need to create a social environment where people with differences.
The world has no tolerance for people with differences, such as ADHD, Autism, LGBT, depression, anxiety or etc.
Owing to Cartesianism, these differences are isolated. We will solve this problem by creating an AI friend who encourages you to be positive.

HoloAsh was founded by Yoshua who has ADHD since he was a child. When he was a child, he was often called inattentive and messy.
He was always scolded by teachers, friends, and parents. But he had the creativity and he could focus on one thing if it's interesting for him.
He felt huge loneliness and he needed someone who can understand him.

CEO自らがADHDであり、誰にも認められない孤独を感じていました。自分自身を認めてくれる、理解してくれる、現実世界の問題解決を支援してくれるAI Friendを創りたい、ということで始まりました。
