AskThee is an AI-powered conversational platform that allows users to ask questions to historical figures and renowned thinkers. Its main purpose is to provide access to the knowledge and insights of some of history’s greatest minds. And the best part? AskThee is currently free to use. Users are not required to sign up for the platform.
However, also keep in mind that you only get to ask 3 questions every day. So, you have to make them count. Users can have conversations with historical figures like Einstein, Seneca, Frida Kahlo, Rumi, etc. That means the whole list includes scientists, artists, and philosophers from different cultures.
I took the opportunity and asked Rumi “What is Love?”. You can see the response in the image below.
- Learning about historical figures for students and curious individuals.
