Phantom Technology Brings CASSI Spatial AI Assistant to DigiLens ARGO™.
Phantom Technology and DigiLens Inc. join forces to elevate enterprise users’ capabilities with AI-powered smartglasses.
CAMBRIDGE, UK – October 24, 2023
Phantom Technology Ltd today announced it has partnered with DigiLens Inc. to bring CASSI to the DigiLens ARGO™ Augmented Reality (AR) platform. CASSI is a one-of-a-kind Spatial AI assistant for wearable devices, designed to enhance user productivity and awareness in enterprise settings.
CASSI combines computer vision algorithms with a Large Language Model (LLM) to generate practical solutions in AR with spatial awareness. The power of generative AI helps CASSI gain a deeper understanding of real-world context, which it then uses to provide users with step-by-step assistance for a wide range of tasks.
This partnership will give ARGO customers an AI upgrade and helps accelerate Phantom's mission to elevate human capabilities with AI-powered wearables, which the company describes as "real-world superpowers in the making".
ARGO users will be able to access the following CASSI features using their voice:
Spatial Search: Locate any physical object or destination in the real world with 3D precision.
Contextual Assistant: Generate step-by-step instructions to help perform physical tasks.
Task Management: Use AR to create, edit, and track tasks seamlessly while performing them in the real-world.
ARGO is one of the first purpose-built, all-in-one XR smartglasses for the enterprise and lite-industrial market. The glasses feature DigiLens’ best-in-class Crystal30 waveguides and EnLiten30 projector. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon® XR2 Platform, ARGO also features inside-out tracking capabilities, which enable developers to bring their ideas to life and revolutionize the possibilities of headworn AR.
“DigiLens ARGO is the perfect platform for combining vision AI with modern LLMs, which takes AR to a whole new level. We have seen the impact of generative AI with chatbots and images, but we’ve yet to see this applied to real-time AR,” commented Farbod Shakouri, Co-Founder & CEO, Phantom Technology. “The most exciting opportunity with this partnership is versatility. For traditionally costly enterprise projects, AI can now provide extensible, scalable, and versatile solutions at a fraction of the cost.”
“ARGO integrated with a spatial AI assistant platform like CASSI will change the future of mobile computing as we know it – for the better,” said Brian Hamilton, VP of Sales and Marketing at DigiLens. “DigiLens is excited to partner with Phantom Tech to deliver this AI-enabled technology for our customers to help optimize their workflows significantly.”
