Our new ecosystem platform

The technology for our new ecosystem platform features a collaborative, open-source knowledge repository. Natural language artificial Intelligence search algorithms identify, organize, and feature highly relevant content while also and rating and ranking the participating experts. Enterprise search tools powered by machine learning and conversational intelligence, gather unstructured data from across the web pulling out the relevant facts for the best business decisions.  Meanwhile, consensus mechanisms rate and reward the best contributing experts.  

Next Steps:  

Identify a ‘brain trust” of like- minded individuals to hone the strategic vision and outline the initial process workflow of the platform. To accelerate our initial efforts, we are now recruiting a co-founding board of directors. In addition, we are seeking growth capital partners to further develop our technology platform, hire professional management, and create inbound marketing, publishing, and other organizational support services.
