Igigi is a blue-eyed virtual assistant who works on the principle of artificial intelligence. It helps all actors in retail – buyers, traders, and producers of goods. When you go shopping, stop by the Aroma markets – because there will be an irresistible assistant waiting for you who will make your shopping more beautiful. He also cooperates with Coca-Cola, and in the first half of June 2021 he was at the coffee fair in Vračar. His expressions are identical to human emotions: he will laugh, be sad, ask, be ashamed, take a nap, etc.
PygmyTITAN startup introduced this marketing platform in 2018 for the first time. The founders of this startup are Nikola Nenadić and Vita Latinović. Their goal is to raise physical shopping to a higher level and digitize it in its way. Igigi is your loyal assistant who will try to brighten your day and justify your trust.
It got its name after Sumerian mythology, and team members considered about 30 names. “Igigi are the first demigods, which our creators created on earth to dig for their gold.” – Nikola emphasized during his guest appearance in the podcast “5 questions for”. In the Sumerian ancient deity, Igigi means one who pierces the gaze.
Igigi is still in the prototype phase, and the team is aware that it will take them a little less than ten years – for the full development of the business. The next step is to enter the world market. Igigi can communicate in all languages.
The initial idea was to speak, but that was abandoned. There are two reasons for that – noise in the markets and privacy.
Igigi will soon work by showing him the product, and he will give you all the information you need.
