Recently, we unveiled our hyper-personalized, artificial intelligence (AI)-powered workplace training solution to a small but growing list of private beta testers (if you haven’t registered yet, you can still sign up here).
This marked a significant milestone in Soffos’ exciting, yet relatively short, history. It also got us thinking – how much do the newest members of our community know about the origins of Soffos, and the mission we have set out on?

Traditional education hinders lifelong learning
As humans, we’re all lifetime learners – whether we realize it or not.
While most will reminisce about the days of formal education when reflecting on their own learning journey, much of our personal development takes place outside the confines of educational institutions such as schools or universities.
This means that the same challenges we have faced historically, when trying to improve our understanding of a subject or absorb new knowledge, follow us through life as we progress into new professional roles and develop more skills.
Specifically, there are three key obstacles that hinder efficient teaching within a contemporary context:
Here at Soffos, we knew things had to change – and fast. That’s why we harnessed the novel capabilities of emerging technologies to truly improve the way people learn.
Soffos was born due to simple necessity; a frustration with the status quo within education – workplace training, where the task of developing employees continues to pose a challenge.
There are several reasons why Soffos is in a league of its own. Our sophisticated learning management system (LMS) employs the ‘Socratic Method’ of conversational learning to interrogate users’ current levels of knowledge and understanding. Unlike run-of-the-mill eLearning platforms, our AI solution also creates personalized learning paths for each user and ensures that they are continuously engaged in active knowledge acquisition.
A new trainee at a law firm, for example, will therefore receive a different package of support than an established lawyer who simply wants to brush up on a new set of regulations. The former would likely benefit from more in-depth Q&A sessions and links to helpful company resources to help them settle in, while the latter might only need a high level overview of relevant changes. All the while, Soffos will cater to individual learning preferences and identify gaps in understanding to ensure that each user can progress at their own pace.
Staff members will no longer have to spend hours trawling through documents to find the information they need. Managers can consistently upload new documents to build an extensive knowledge repository for their company, with Soffos able to quickly synthesize the data and revert accurate answers to vocational questions when called upon.
Soffos was created to support lifelong learning and help users achieve their goals. We look forward to seeing how our novel solution will reinvent workplace training as more and more businesses sign up to trial our corporate KnowledgeBot.
