At Cinnamon we are working to make a world
where human creativity can flourish
by using our AI technology to replace all the repetitive,
mind-numbing tasks that take place today.
Cinnamon provides AI product and consulting services.
Cinnamon provides Products and Consulting Development services for Artificial Intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a computer system that can learn, infer, recognize, and judge like humans do. A simple computer can perform by following the given programs, but an AI computer can respond to audience and situations flexibly.
AI still cannot perform like human brains but is already competing or surpassing humans for the limited areas and objectives.
Cinnamon aims to extend human potential for more productive and creative work by utilizing the power of Artificial Intelligence.
