[Excerpt]

We believe the artificial intelligence (AI) winter spanning 30 years or more is finally over, and we're in the AI spring. From autonomous vehicles to cancer diagnosis, developers are building applications to take advantage of machine learning and help humans do things more efficiently than we can unaided. Anywhere there is a critical problem that involves analyzing data at scales beyond that humans can handle using current analytics tools is ripe for being transformed by machine learning. It's rare for a technology to be attractive to the entire technology stack from silicon to applications, but that's how broadly applicable machine learning is.

Nara Logics builds a synaptic network of explicit and inferred connections across data so it can be used by applications.
