Our response to COVID-19

Hyphen x Humanise.AI Covid-19 Response


Global pandemic has challenged the way we work and is likely to change the world for good. With public services overloaded, helplines congested and rising information chaos, the demand for reliable knowledge is as high as ever. As governments and the private sector are firefighting the pandemic and its immense socio-economic consequences, they must adapt to operating under the conditions of lockdown, social distancing and reduced mobility. 

Hyphen is adapting to this novel situation too—by providing remote expertise in the most seamless way possible, and building tools that help our partners stay ahead of the curve.

Most recently, we have teamed up with Humanise.AI to create an automated conversation platform, that allows businesses and governments to provide a more accurate and reliable user experience. During the current crisis, our solution can be most helpful by providing factual and up-to-date recommendations in a form of a natural conversation embedded in a variety of social media communication channels, and by proactively triaging affected customers to allow deployment of resources where needed.

Looking beyond the crisis, Humanise.AI is a perfect fit for any organisation wishing to rapidly disseminate critical information and gather feedback or assess needs and improve user satisfaction, all while reducing costs and allowing critical stuff to focus on what is key.

Hyphen embraces
emerging technologies

Hyphen is driven by the belief in personal interaction and the trust it creates. At the same time, we are well aware of the transformative power of emerging technologies to connect individuals and unleash human ingenuity. 

The foundation of our services lies in the provision of the highest quality of expertise to the governments and corporations in the most seamless and efficient way possible. To us, digital solutions are means, not ends. This is why in our undertakings we are technology agnostic and focused on solving real world problems—be it helping the governmental agency get its message across through a bespoke crisis communication tool, or supporting a large public hospital triage patients more effectively.

Together with our technology partners we build multidisciplinary teams to rapidly implement novel and scalable solutions that amplify what works best and transform the rest. 

One of such partnerships is already well underway. Hyphen has teamed up with Humanise.AI—the key innovators behind IBM Watson—to build a cutting-edge communication platform that interacts with users in a natural way. By leveraging best-in-class AI technology with the multidisciplinary minds at Hyphen—ranging from linguists, behavioural scientists to industry specialists—the aim is simple: revolutionise the way governments and corporations interact with and service their customers, staff and partners.

Launching Hyphen:
Excellence Exceeds
Limits

These testing times coincide with our relaunch as Hyphen. With Hyphen, we are now expanding our global reach, widening the area of expertise, and growing our team—all to deliver even more value to our clients and partners.

The rationale to launch Hyphen is simple. Having been at the frontlines of decision-making and entrepreneurship, it has become self-evident that the uncertainty and complexity of the XXI century requires new modus operandi: while the nature of work is changing towards becoming more flexible, contemporary problems that governments and businesses struggle with are impossible to be solved just with in-house expertise. At the same time, bringing together the best people may not be enough—knowledge needs to be supported by real life experience and cultural fit. Finally, the best outcomes can be achieved when these qualities are combined with strong project and process management.

In our daily practices, we are driven by the principles of excellence, commitment, independence and resourcefulness. We believe that exceeding expectations is a team effort that goes beyond the individual, dedication has the power to transform expertise into valuable action, absence of conflicts of interests enables us to make right decisions, and that resourcefulness underpinned by diverse relationships leads to success.

Our core offering focuses on three services:

→ Minds
Complementing our clients’ teams with senior advisers, industry specialists and consultants crucial for their success, based on engagement-specific needs.

Systems
Building interdisciplinary teams to deliver even the most complex projects across policy advisory, financial market regulations and crisis management.

→ Inventions
Ideating, developing and incubating rapidly deployable and easily scalable digital solutions in partnership with world-leading technologists.

Just as hyphens join words, our company strives to connect world leaders with resources crucial for success. Building a high-trust environment, we put together excellent individuals into multidisciplinary teams, keeping the focus on what matters: conducting meaningful projects and cultivating strong personal relations, at the same time cutting red tape to the minimum.
