We are an Augmented Intelligence and Big Data company creating and developing business intelligence solutions relying on unstructured data analytics, founded by a team of experts in the fields of artificial intelligence, optimization and advanced statistics coming from academia and the private sector. Our core technology is the result of 10 years of theoretical and algorithmic research in these domains, completed by our core team members. We are currently focusing on building a product offering for the financial industry where we see tremendous opportunities driven by significant pain points on the user side that are not satisfactorily addressed by existing technologies. We have already validated the scalability and relevance of our technology through opportunistic projects with the financial, law, national security, utilities and retail sectors and we will expand into these other industry sectors when the timing is right.
