Our premise l.jpg
OUR PREMISE….

New intelligent software and sensor technologies will change everything about how products and services are defined and delivered

and

how companies interact with their customers and suppliers.


What is intelligent logistics l.jpg
WHAT IS INTELLIGENT LOGISTICS?

Example

…A truck moving equipment from a logistics hub to a sports venue is caught in a traffic jam.

…The truck’s position and contents are known, as well as a snap shot of local traffic densities. …An “intelligent” decision can be made in real-time regarding re-routing or substituting equipment from an other venue.

Intelligent logistics can be defined as the application of intelligent technologies, including RFID/sensors and intelligent software agents to manage increasingly complex logistics processes so they are real-time, event-driven, responsive and adaptive.


The future l.jpg
THE FUTURE……

Smart products/systems linked by smart processes to intelligent, closed-loop logistics networks that produce, maintain (and enhance) the utility of the product/system

… until ultimate disposal.

Saffron technology associative memory for adaptive learning l.jpg
SAFFRON TECHNOLOGYAssociative Memory For Adaptive Learning

  • BIOLOGICALLY INSPIRED LEARNING!

  • Builds an associative memory like the Human Brain does.

  • Has the ability to recognize patterns and correlations across large and complex datasets (more than 1M attributes).

  • Ability to scaleto extremely large problems and datasets using patented compression technology.

Think of Saffron as providing “the brain” of the Intelligent Agent.

Associative Memory, developed by Saffron Technology, offers the ability to learn “on-the-fly” without rules!
