The unique humanoid or unisex characters feature VOICE or speech recognition (ASR) & speak over 130 languages on any device.
AI BaaS has invested over a decade of R&D in its own proprietary algorithm for customisable botification; it's called VAIP [Virtual Artificially Intelligent Patois].

Tania was born in 1970 in Cairns, tropical Far North Queensland. She first learnt to sail in Australia - on catamarans like the Hobie boats you see behind her in this 2019 selfie.
In fact it was at this beach where she first sailed before yacht racing on Sydney Harbour and Port Melbourne, the now famous tourist destination of "Palm Cove" north of Cairns. During her first 18 years in the tropics, she was also a qualified beach life guard at the Palm Cove Surf Lifesaving Association.
Once married to the well-known Chinese-Australian artist Jun Chen, Tania Peitzker is now married to the English farmer Andrew Lingham, with two sons. They live on the family's mixed arable farm in Kent bordering Greater London with London & Cambridgeshire airports only ca 40 minutes away by train.
Due to Britain's years of "Brexit upheavals", she commutes to her German technology venture AI Bots as a Service in Munich - in Bavaria where her father originally hailed from before emigrating to Australia - while enjoying a Winter Sabbatical each year on the French Riviera.
Tania is a keen yachtswoman and has sailed competitively in regattas in Australia and Germany. Other hobbies with friends & family include creative writing, rambling (walking in nature), cycling, ocean swimming and yoga.
