Cobrain today unveiled its free service empowering consumers to make better decisions. It’s based on a new form of artificial intelligence combining the brainpower of millions. Cobrain personalizes the shopping world across more than 300 of the largest merchants with the goal of discovering what its members will love. The free mobile and web products know nearly every product in the USA, helping consumers consider the vast universe of possibilities. There are 18,000 different sweaters sold in America, and Cobrain knows the ones each member will love most.
“I previously helped over 100 million people upgrade their careers by creating Careerbuilder.com. Now my focus is helping millions of people make better decisions. We’re the opposite of the marketers who want to exploit consumers with data. We’re about empowering people in a world of infinite and often confusing choices”.
– Rob McGovern, Cobrain Founder
How it works:
Cobrain’s artificial intelligence is based on harnessing the brainpower of millions to help discover what individuals will love. Members simply ask Cobrain to discover prior purchases and spend a few moments telling it what they like. It then makes billions of calculations to find the products loved by their anonymous cohorts. Member cohorts are people who love the same things, so each new member makes Cobrain smarter. It’s like having a million brains working together to make better decisions. Cobrain discovers Craves and transfers its members directly to merchant sites to explore and make purchases.
Add Friends, and Gift Giving is a Snap!
Cobrain’s collaborative intelligence can easily be shared with friends and family to discover exactly which Craves friends love. Instead of purchasing something blindly, members can now use collaborative intelligence to choose the perfect gift. Members can also get opinions from friends and make them part of the shopping experience.
“It’s impossible to buy my sister a gift for Christmas. With Cobrain we can exchange gift lists based on Cobrain’s shared brainpower. Thankfully, returning gifts is a thing of the past.”
