We’ve been making Stockholm a warmer place for more than 100 years – in our impacts as a business and through our community engagement. Now we’re taking our social responsibility one step further in a revolutionary new initiative.
With the help of artificial intelligence, we’re highlighting the extraordinary stories of Stockholm citizens in a series of ground-breaking interviews. Stories that offer valuable insights that should be preserved for future generations. By clicking on the links below, you can listen to unique life experiences of people being interviewed by the world’s first reverse engineered voice assistant programmed to ask interviewees questions.
Meet John who went to sea at the age of 17 and devoted his life to military service. Listen to his open-minded reflections about the essence of life.
Mats has lived virtually his entire life in the same area of Stockholm. Hear about his love for the city and his positive outlook of life – even in the face of tragedy.
Life took Eva from Stockholm to a family in Rome and back to Stockholm again. Today, she is a city guide and shows tourists around the beautiful Swedish capital.
This is 87 year-old Percy, who just happened to help one of the world’s greatest tennis players – Björn Borg – to achieve global success. Hear him talk about his fascinating life, all the way from Hässelby to all four corners of the globe.
Björn is a 78 and has always driven by curiosity, something that has taken him all around the world. He has spent most of his life living abroad or traveling, and now he struggles with adapting to a culture that values independence.
Ingegerd is a spritely 101 who has experienced more than most people could ever dream of. The second world war fundamentally affect her and her choice of profession, as well as her view on life, making her determined to approach life with courage and compassion.
Life is full of ups and downs, relationships, and experiences. Life is about creating memories and stories to share with loved ones. Unfortunately, not everyone has someone to share them with, or someone who takes the time to listen. As daily interaction with society decreases, so unwanted loneliness and isolation increases, and this has become a major societal challenge. Studies suggest that the health impacts of loneliness on many elderly people include depression and accelerated early-stage dementia. Independent research shows that unwanted loneliness is as dangerous as smoking or obesity.
For more than 100 years, Stockholm Exergi has warmed the citizens of Stockholm both through our business and social engagement. With Memory Lane, we’ve decided to take the next step in making Stockholm warmer – and in a way that has never been attempted before.
The technology behind the Memory Lane project was initiated two years ago at Accenture Interactive R&D Center in Sophia Antipolis. After over two years of research, development, and thousands of hours of testing, the team successfully launched the now patent-pending Memory Lane. It’s the world’s first reverse engineered voice assistant that can drive meaningful conversations and ask personal questions to the person it is talking to.
Do you have a story that can inspire others? By taking part in this project, you will have the opportunity to tell your life story in a unique conversation with an artificial intelligence platform. We keep and share your history based on this conversation. Maybe you know someone that deserves to be heard?
