of linguistics, a Sr. computational linguistics programmer, a Director of
strategy with more than 2 decades in cloud/web-based solutions, and three

What We’re Doing:
We’re changing the world for the, more than 400 million, knowledge workers
that generate high-value documents for organizations around the globe. By
using AI classifiers and providing real-time linguistic analytics, we’re
helping them significantly reduce textual ambiguities and craft linguistically
hardened language in their documents.

Our tech stack includes Java, C#, React.js, .Net, and a few other goodies.

What We’ve Done (So Far):
- Received our software/systems patent in June, 2017
- Awarded over $350,000 in infrastructure credits by global technology
provider.
- Top-to-bottom redesign of UI/UX
- EAU launch of a custom interface useful by a channel partner’s 28,000
customer base
