How Pythia Works
With 5G devices and networks, user requests and commands round trip in 1 second or less.
Make Database Records
Standard Operating Procedures, like recipes, medical protocols, assembly instructions, and other procedures are entered into a cloud database as records; one text field per instruction or step.
Use regular Bluetooth or Adyton's exclusive WiFi earphones and headphones to connect to the Pythia Cloud and access work instructions on demand, hands-free, globally, in over 100 different languages and dialects.
Like Alexa, Siri, or Google Assist, Pythia uses a conversational interface to operate the system, hands-free. Say the wake word, "Hey Coach", plus a process title to start a process. Say the commands, "Hey Coach, Next" to hear the next instructional step. Say, "Hey Coach, Quit" to end a process. Say, "Hey Coach, Repeat" to repeat a step. Say, "Hey Coach Previous" to hear the previous step. Say, "Hey Coach Help" to immediately send an alert to a designated supervisor.
Bluetooth or WiFi
Pythia operates with iOS and Android smart devices and off-the-shelf Bluetooth headphones/earphones or via proprietary earphones and WiFi networks.
For added security, the Bluetooth system can be used anywhere a smart phone operates or limited to up to 2 geo-locations. The WiFi only system only operates within range of up to 2 pre-configured WiFi channels.
Secure Cloud Database
Processes/procedures, user profiles, and performance data are all kept in our cloud database. For complete security, no process, step, or performance data is ever saved outside the cloud; everything operates on-the-fly. No data connections are made to client architecture.
The Pythia database is built on Google Cloud for world class service and security. Pythia's code is routinely penetration-tested by a former NSA and CIA information security expert.
Pythia uses speech-to-text and text-to-speech technology to convert database text fields to speech on-the-fly.
After the system finds a requested process to run, Pythia converts the record's first text field to speech and plays it on-the-fly to the earphone.
After hearing a step, a timer begins. The timer immediately stops after the user completes the step and says, "Hey Coach, Next." The elapsed time is saved to a performance file for reporting and analysis.
After completing a step, the user says, "Hey Coach, Next", the system instantly stops the timer, calculates the performance duration, uploads the data to the cloud, converts the next step's text to speech, and plays it on-the-fly to the earphone.
After completing all the steps of a process, Pythia asks users to provide their (optional) continuous improvement feedback. Their suggestions are converted to text and managers review these via the Feedback Report for improvement consideration. This provides our clients a real time “Ideas” program which improves communication, empowers employees, and improves performance.
Recycle to Beginning
After the feedback phase, Pythia recycles to the beginning and asks the user to request a process.
Performance interval data is immediately available and can be sorted down to individual performer, date range, and specific process STEP. Our Mean Performance Report automatically calculates a mean performance interval for sorted data, then color codes all data in the found set relative to the mean; Green is for events closest to mean, Red is farthest from the mean, and Gold includes best practices and easiest performance to improve.
Global SOP Updates
Companies using Pythia can update any process and make it available globally, instantly, with no residual documentation to replace, simply by editing database text fields.
Our future auto-translation capability will enable clients to write their SOPs in one language, then deliver them in over 40 other languages, in real time.
Pythia users say, "Hey Coach Help" to immediately send an alert to a designated supervisor via email.
An email alert is also sent when users don't spend the minimum expected amount of time on "Critical Process Steps".
Like Siri and Alexa, Pythia operates by voice, which enables it to work completely hands-free. This is important when safety, cleanliness, efficiency, and accuracy are important, which also avoids re-work.
Phones or NO Phones; It's Your Choice!
For more than a decade, technologies have converged with dependency on phones and tablets. The next decade will begin the divergence from phones. Pythia's patented technologies work with phones and Bluetooth devices or via WiFi devices connected directly to pre-designated WiFi channels.
