Sizzle AI Launches Free Study Habits App to Foster Engagement, Backed by $7.5M Seed Funding

Sizzle AI is a free interactive app that utilizes the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to guide learners step by step through problem-solving, including those tricky word problems.

Unlike other apps that only provide answers, Sizzle AI takes a unique approach.

It offers students a supportive and confidence-building experience by encouraging them to tackle problems themselves.

By providing a judgment-free environment where users can ask questions freely, Sizzle nurtures critical thinking skills and a deep understanding of core concepts, benefiting learners of all levels.

Sizzle’s Mission

Sizzle’s mission is to make learning an incredible and engaging experience for everyone. It harnesses AI technology to interact with learners in a way that fosters excitement and support.

Founded by Jerome Pesenti, a serial entrepreneur with 25 years of experience in AI, natural language processing, and search, Sizzle AI has a mission deeply rooted in using AI for the betterment of society.

Before founding Sizzle, Jerome served as VP of AI at Meta, focusing on enhancing product safety and value through AI.

Now, he continues his mission to leverage AI for the enrichment of lives by creating a brand-new learning platform that encourages interactive learning and problem-solving while providing the high engagement seen in social apps.

Rather than endless scrolling, learners can now use their time to master various subjects in a safe space that offers positive reinforcement.

“Significant advancements in artificial intelligence have created new and useful tools, but few truly benefit us and make our lives better.

Positively harnessing the power of AI can benefit the next generation of students, which is the next generation of thinkers and leaders, by allowing us to bridge systemic learning gaps and remove the fear of failure.

We want to encourage students to ask questions and give everyone the opportunity to be a lifelong learner, no matter what kind of background they come from, school they attend or what they’re learning about.

We’re thrilled to be able to offer Sizzle internationally, for free, so anyone can learn through access to instant guidance.” – Jerome Pesenti, the founder and CEO of Sizzle AI

Research has shown that actively engaged students learn more effectively than passive ones. However, many students hesitate to ask questions due to the fear of judgment.

A recent study revealed that 62% of students avoid asking questions because they worry about others’ judgment.

With Sizzle, this issue becomes a thing of the past. Students now have the freedom to learn on their own terms, with support provided every step of the way.

The Sizzle app is the result of a collaborative effort from a team with extensive experience in both social platforms and AI/ML, hailing from companies such as Google, Meta, Twitter, and Twitch.

The app employs large language models and deep learning algorithms to facilitate engaging, back-and-forth dialogues.

Over time, Sizzle’s AI algorithms will automatically generate personalized practice exercises and study plans.

In its initial version, Sizzle covers a wide range of topics, including sciences and mathematics, making it suitable for middle and high school students, as well as learners of all skill levels.

The app is currently available internationally in English, with plans to expand its language offerings and introduce additional features to enhance the learning experience. Download the Sizzle app in the App Store or Google Store. 

Sizzle AI Funding

Additionally, Sizzle AI has successfully secured $7.5 million in seed funding, led by Owl Ventures and with participation from 8VC.

Emily Bennett of Owl Ventures expressed their excitement, stating, “AI will have a profound effect on the global education system, and Sizzle AI is leading the way with an app that allows all learners to learn more interactively on their own.

We’re excited to support a company that is empowering generations of learners to come.”
