Quantilus designed and developed Mike, an app that students and professionals can use to practice and improve public speaking and communication skills. Mike’s sequential approach utilizes the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which has proven to be a highly effective method of overcoming anxiety and achieving mastery. CBT works in part by breaking up anxiety-provoking activities into more manageable, sequential steps.
The core principle behind the app is that with consistent practice and feedback, users can improve their speaking skills in a virtual environment. The app can measure and score the user’s speaking performance via AI, natural language processing, and sentiment analysis methods. The sentiment analysis technology converts the user’s spoken words into text.

Moreover, users can record their speeches in video format, allowing them to watch the playback in conjunction with the speech analysis.
The Mike app’s use case is significant for several reasons:
