Custom Big Data and AI Applications

Artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data analytics are the heart and soul of all our solutions.  We innovate on developing robust and efficient methods to empower systems that make our society a better place.

Our areas of innovation are in deep learning for Natural Language Processing, multi-modal deep learning to combine fundamentally different types of data together, engaging both reinforcement learning and transfer learning.  

We apply these principles and tools to a variety of social issues and concerns. Some of our work in this area indluceks:
