Viv
Viv is a startup with the goal of creating an artificial intelligence service to compete with the likes of Siri and Cortana. Developers can plug into the global platform to build an intelligent, conversational interface for devices, services, and things.
The assistant is designed to become smarter by learning over time. Unlike Siri, which can only answer questions designed by Apple employees, Viv will have fewer limitations and will be able to answer a broader range of questions. Its creators, one of whom helped create Siri, intend to have Viv learn users' individual preferences and use a broad range of connections to answer (almost) any question thrown at it.
Viv was three years old as of January 2016. It's backed by $30 million in funding.

Some interesting tools
I like the concept of Tribe, I think I'll check it out, many project collaboration tools have email functionality as far as sending items to a list or receiving notifications but it ends there and managing anything strictly via email is clumsy.

 

Wade and Wendy seems like a different way to look at AI and it should be interesting to see how they pan out.  The approach of using multiple AIs to build a single package feels more flexible.
