Sunshine Contact uses artificial intelligence to manage contacts

Former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has announced a new app called Sunshine Contacts that can manage contacts on iOS devices based on artificial intelligence.

Sunshine Contacts is Sunshine's first product. Sunshine is a startup formerly known as Lumi Labs that aims to become the world's most advanced and intuitive contact manager.

The application is developed to standardize and simplify contacts. In addition to Gmail, it can be integrated into the iOS Contacts app and it can extract your data from these sources and combine it with general information.

At the same time, the app should help in organizing and cleaning contacts, entering missing information and removing duplicate entries.

The app can sync this information with the Contacts app and keep it updated over time.

Sunshine Contacts also offers detailed contact sharing settings that allow users to share certain personal information with close friends or provide business cards with less information for business contacts.

Sunshine Contacts is launching as a free service and plans to add more postpaid features.

Currently the application can only be run through the invitation system, which allows Sunshine to accurately manage the number of users to be supported.

One of the features is to allow users to change their contact information in the app and present it as an update to others who have the information and are using the Sunshine Contacts app.

While the contact syncing service seems a bit small for the first joint venture (Mayer) after Yahoo, Sunshine isn't just focused on the app.

“Over time, the company hopes to develop a range of smart sharing products, and Sunshine Contacts should be just the beginning,” Meyer said.

The company aims to develop apps that focus on family exchanges, planning, organizing events, and group communication.

Meyer believes that users no longer want high-performance, large-scale applications, but rather more applications for specific purposes.

"The appeal of big apps that can do all things is declining, and we want apps that can deal with specific problems," she said.
