Aiqudo - Our Name

(noun | i · Q · doe | \ī-kyü-dō\)

Aiqudo is a play on Aikido (Japanese: 合気道), the Japanese martial art. Our Voice to Actions platform is called Q.

The word Aikido is formed of three kanji :

合 – ai – joining, unifying
気 – ki – spirit, energy
道 – dō – way, path

Aikido: The right path to harness energy

Aiqudo : The right path to harness action

It stands to reason, then, that our Japanese name is 合 Q 道

The name represents us perfectly since we use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning for command matching, Q is our Voice to Action platform, and we are all about Action (DO)!

Our Mission

Help people do more. Quickly.

Faster. Easier. Better.

Everybody needs more time! Current digital assistants don’t DO enough today. They create walled gardens where many popular services are just not available. The result is that users continue to use their mobile apps to get things done.

Aiqudo’s Q Actions Platform bridges this gap between virtual assistants and mobile apps. makes it natural and easy for you to use voice to instantly execute actions in your favorite apps.

Especially when you are on-the-go!! Remember that your mobile device is ubiquitous and your apps are always with you – in your pocket, bag or purse…

No need for you to learn new skills! No need to register services again with your assistant!
