A.I. innovation finds a home on mobile devices

SAN FRANCISCO — Innovative mobile apps married to increasingly powerful artificial intelligence (A.I.) are rapidly getting smarter — making them even more helpful for users.

These kinds of apps, showcased at VentureBeat’s two-day MobileBeat conference here this week, are designed to anticipate user needs. Who knew, for example, that you can use your smartphone to simplify the process of getting a green card to enter the United States or to streamline corporate travel?

During a “Startup Showcase” session, Visabot showcased its appropriately-named Green Card app. The program is based on a bot that walks users through a series of simple questions that, when answered, generates a package of documents you can file with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to complete the application process.

“When I came to this country, I needed a visa urgently, but it took a month,” said Visibot’s co-founder and chief operating officer, Andrey Ziniviev. “We built this bot to help folks like us come here quickly and legally and not have to pay lawyers thousands of dollars.” Green Card costs $149 and Ziniviev said it’s already been used by 70,000 people to help get their paperwork in order.
