AI robot Tengai spins off as separate company

Tengai, the AI interview robot developed by a Swedish recruiter TNG on the Furhat Robotics platform, is to go incorporated as Tengai AB, as the group eyes international expansion of the product.

In May, Recruiter reported Tengai, who is unbiased by design as she doesn’t see age, gender, clothing, backgrounds and looks, and is built with inclusion and diversity software to perform blind interviews, was already being put to work. Upplands-Bro, a municipality in Stockholm County, had signed up to use the robot to recruit a strategic digital co-ordinator.

The move to spin the brand off as its own incorporate company follows on from the first automated product for in-house use by TNG being released to the Swedish market. The group now plans a stand-alone interview robot for the Swedish market followed by an English-speaking robot early next year.

Tengai is built by Furhat Robotics but the diversity software it uses is developed by TNG. To learn more about the robot’s applications and see her in action, click here.
