Intelligence is a Beautiful Thing
Remi is an AI research firm. We take inspiration from neuroscience to design algorithms that emulate mammalian brains and, in our highest ambitions, human intelligence. Intelligence has always been one of the most important commodities, when you consider that everything we have achieved as a species has been catalysed by intelligence. We work to replicate and then commercialise this Intelligence in Artificial Intelligence. Our focus is on developing and employing General AI, that is, algorithms designed to excel at any task, in opposition to Narrow AI which is designed to excel at one task only. We hope to bring the next wave of algorithms to the marketplace allowing solutions to be developed while keeping costs to a minimum.
Within the Remi Group there are three sections: Applied, Products, and Research. We believe there is a distinct advantage in having different objectives for the Group, while allowing movement of the team between them.
APPLIED – The broad objective of our applied solutions is to engineer AI to tackle complex problems. Our team is dedicated to working for the common good, and doing what’s right, in addition to being deeply passionate about building great AI software and a successful company. Our solutions are based on one of two aspects of the brain. The first is the idea of predicting what will come next, in which we’ve applied our platform of algorithms to a whole host of areas, from predicting energy consumption in buildings, to insulin spikes in diabetes patients, to predicting your daily fitness output. The other even more powerful aspect is that of an AI agent, which can not only predict what will come next, but act upon that prediction. We have applied these state-of-the-art algorithms to a variety of real world problems; from financial decisions to unassistated autonomous vehicles.
PRODUCTS – The algorithms developed in the lab are built into software and application products. There are currently 2 in development, an iOS app and web API. The broad objective of our app is fundamentally simple: Build an AI. Build as intelligent an AI as we can. Not just a chatbot or just a Personal Assistant, but a full-blown AI that talks, thinks and most importantly learns. At the beginning it won’t be particularly intelligent – less intelligent than a dog. But as our research knocks off the challenges in front of it, the AI will grow and improve. We believe in an open AI Architecture. An open, extensible or plugin architecture promotes customization by enabling users to add and remove custom modules. Apple iOS is an example of software that features an open architecture. While iOS ships with a number of applications written by Apple developers, independent developers are also able to write applications that run on the iPhone. Open software platforms provide a base upon which developers can easily build new capabilities. Our platforms feature an open plugin architecture that allows organizations to add applications specially suited to their use cases.An open architecture also promotes collaboration among systems. We know that software systems do not operate in a vacuum, and organizations need software that can integrate with their existing investments. An open architecture makes cross-platform interoperability possible. Our software has a proven record of interoperability with legacy systems and third-party software.
THE RESEARCH LAB – The last, most fundamental aspect of the Group. Our company is founded on a long-term research plan, with a vision to improve the world around us through neuroscience inspired artificial intelligence.
