Time is on Your Side: Building Ontologies with the Kyndi Platform

A couple of months ago, we wrote about maximizing the value of data with ontologies. Expressive ontologies enable smarter applications than those built with taxonomies, thesauri, or conceptual models. However, the difficulty of building and maintaining ontologies has prevented their adoption. We have changed that. The traditional ontology-building process for a specific domain is time-consuming […]

Explainable AI™ is the Future

At Kyndi, we believe Explainable AI™ achieves the level of trust that is so important for accelerated growth and acceptance of this revolutionary […]

Creating Knowledge and Maximizing the Value of Data with Ontologies

“What a man doesn’t understand, he does not possess.” This is one of Goethe’s great maxims and it captures well the problems faced by organizations that handle a lot of data.

Kyndi CEO Responds To NY Times Op-Ed On AI’s “Dirty Little Secret”

In a recent New York Times op-ed, Gary Marcus, a professor of psychology and neural science at New York University, commented: “AI is colossally hyped these days, but the dirty little secret is that it still has a long, long way to go.” Though Marcus conceded that “AI is exploding with microdiscoveries,” he remained critical […]

DARPA and The Third Wave of AI

In February, U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) released the video “A DARPA Perspective on Artificial Intelligence,” featuring John Launchbury, the Director of DARPA’s Information Innovation Office. There is so much to love about this video.   First, it was great to see how knowledge-based expert systems are still in use today despite constant […]
