This is such an interesting pivot! From restaurant recommendations from an AI to a general purpose "platform of bots"...! I've met Luka's CEO, @ekuyda, and she's super smart. This is a great expansion of the original effort and rather than just providing a platform for other people's bots, Luka now has an army of assistants that can evolve independently, unlocking parallel bot-evolution, and targeted question-response by users. Now you can invite the right bot in a given category to a conversation you're having, instead of relying one universal bot that wouldn't be domain-specific, and therefore potentially prone to confusion. Congrats to the team — this is an existing launch, with new funding to help them build this out!
