We have made Stockholm warmer for over a hundred years, from our business as well as from our social engagement. Now we take that one step further with a revolutionary technique. With the help of artificiell intelligence we shine a light on the amazing stories the citizens of Stockholm have, so that they can teach us valuable insights and not be forgotten. Here you can read and listen to unique conversations between the interesting histories of human beeings and the world first reversed voice assistant who asks personal questions.
Björn is a 78-year old man that was always driven by curiosity, something that has brought him all around the world. He has spent most of his life living abroad or traveling but since moving back to Sweden he struggles with adapting to a culture that values independency. In conversation with our AI- assistant we hear Björn talk openly about the grief of leaving people that matter behind, about life as a LGBT- person and the realisation that life is not always easy.
Ingegerd is a lively woman of 101 that has experienced more than most people could ever dream about. World War II came to affect her and her choice of profession, as well as her view on life; it has made her approach life with courage and compassion. She is a true ”southerner”, heart and soul, and has lived on Stockholms Södermalm for the past 70 years. In her conversation with our AI-assistant we hear about what growing up in the 1920`s was like, the power of compassion and humanity in difficult times and how to make love last all through life.

Unfortunately not everyone has someone to share them with, or someone who takes the time to listen. Unwanted loneliness and isolation is a big societal issue when the daily interaction with society slowly increases. As a direct consequence, studies show impact on the health of many elderly citizens, such as depression and accelerated early stage dementia. Independent studies confirm that unwanted loneliness is as dangerous as smoking and obesity.
For more than 100 years, Stockholm Exergi has warmed the citizens of Stockholm both through our business and social engagement. We decided to take the next step in making Stockholm warmer – in a way that had never been done before.
The technology behind 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, they finally successfully launched the now patent-pending Memory Lane. It’s the world’s first reversed engineered voice assistant that can drive meaningful conversations and ask personal questions to the person it is talking to.
