Around 1900, Japan started showing motion pictures that produced no sounds. Benshis, or 弁士 in Japanese, are professional narrators who -- using their animated voices -- guided the audience in understanding the silent movies, thereby enriching their experience.
In a similar way, benshi.ai aims to enrich the lives of people. In our case, we guide people in understanding how to make better health decisions. Like the benshis that used their big voices, we use big data instead as the modern tools of our trade.
Our name, too, has a modern twist. benshi.ai is spelt entirely in lowercase. Because this reflects our vision in building a world where, in terms of health, everyone is equal -- and nobody gets to be in front simply because they are Big or Upper.
