Reinventing marketplaces and meetings.
Exformation, a term coined by Tør Norretranders in Maerk Verden (The User Ilusion, 1991, 1998) refers to useful and relevant information, not simply data. It is everything we do not actually say but have in our heads when, or before, we say or do anything at all. As such, it can be parsed and actioned swiftly without losing sight of the bigger picture.
From Chaos to Orders.
A usable decision management platform that accesses and processes huge amounts of data should be based on simplicity in design as practised by Dieter Rams and Jony Ive. It is not the absence of chaos, noise, or visual clutter inherent in life-size applications, but digging through the depth of the complexity of the surrounding world when developing reliable, easy-to-use and groundbreaking products and architectures that can help users make prompt and effective decisions.
We takehe inherent diversity of statements, actions, perceptions and data, present in the real world as one of the distinctive signs of our marketplace-based approach. Agent-based mechanisms inspired by those present in a complex environment leverage relevant knowledge and present it in a way that is transparent to the end user, encapsulated in open source software running on clusters of off-the-shelf hardware.
Algos meeting Apps.
We use a software engineering approach to assistive technologies for effective communications in group meetings that leverage improved mathematical and statistical techniques for automatic speech recognition and natural language processing whose real-world applications are starting to be used by millions of active users on mobile devices, be they in academia, industry or all walks of everyday life.
