Rob Macrae

Founder of Summer AI

Hi, I'm Rob. I've been working in voice AI for over a decade at SoundHound and at Apple. Just over a year ago, I left my day job to work on an idea I felt was acutely needed; an app that would help you discover a bit about the things around you. GPS tour guide apps work in less than 0.1% of the world. The information we want is out there on the internet but finding it and relating it to the things you are looking at is not easy when out and about. To that end I've built Summer. Summer is an AI Guide who, along with some friends, summarizes the points of interest and events that are happening nearby.

I've had some help along the way, with significant contributions from Iain Baird, Sean Kelly, and of course, ChatGPT.
