In an English-based AI assistants-dominated market, Luzia addresses a significant gap by catering to Spanish and Portuguese-speaking users. The company also tries to enhance AI accessibility by integrating its chatbot into popular messaging platforms, WhatsApp and Telegram. This move targets individuals who may be unfamiliar with AI apps or have reservations about external chatbots.

LuziaLuzia employs a combination of AI models, including GPT-3.5/4, Llama, and Kandinsky, to facilitate interactions, translations, and real-time image processing. It uses the user’s phone number to determine the country they are in and adapts its language to either Spanish, Portuguese, or English accordingly.

Within only six months, Luzia has gained 17 million users. This successful fundraising will help the company introduce new features, hire talent, and expand globally.
