About Hume AI

Hume AI is an expressive communication research lab and technology company building the missing ingredients needed to understand the 50% of communication that language models currently overlook—speech prosody, vocal bursts, facial expression, and emotional tone of language.  Our goal is to enable a future where technology draws on the science of human expression to better serve human goals and emotional well-being. We provide our APIs and SDKs to developers building better digital assistants, digital health apps, communication tools, and more. 

As part of our mission, we conduct groundbreaking scientific research, publish in leading scientific journals like Nature, and support a non-profit, The Hume Initiative, that has released the first concrete ethical guidelines for empathic AI ( You can learn more about us on our website ( and read about us in The Washington Post
