This contextually aware interface for connected devices uses big data and artificial intelligence to find patterns and enable your smartphone to open the right app at the right time.

Snips identifies repeated behavior so that it can come to perform them automatically. Therefore, the interface lets users access the services and information they require without having to search for them first. For example, if you check your weather app immediately after turning off your alarm clock, Snips will see that and start opening it for you.

The objective of the interface for connected devices is to make tech work for its users without the need for intentional interaction. This makes technology less visible and more context-aware. Currently in beta, Snips takes the concept behind ideas like IFTTT to the next level with automation.
