Traditionally, the unstructured environment of our human world has been very hard for computers to understand — it lacks repetition, order and automation.
This presents a problem for our everyday devices, which we expect to operate effectively in our highly complex, nuanced environment: each machine would require a huge amount of on-board processing power necessary to compute the different variables within every situation it encounters. Compounding this problem, any knowledge that has been accumulated by each device is not easy to exchange with other devices, so any learnt knowledge is siloed and not useful for other users and devices.
To solve this problem, Neurence was founded by a group of world-class mathematicians and software engineers in Cambridge, England. Representing one of Europe's premier technical groups, the team at Neurence has built a highly intelligent, cloud-based central repository of information, Sense. Sense acts like a "brain", with an ability to actually see, hear and understand the world around it.
By using new mathematical and computational algorithms that power our cloud architecture, devices can be connected into and powered by Neurence’s core technology, Sense. This allows devices to 'outsource' the processing of information from on-board the device into Sense’s intelligent cloud environment. By communicating all video and audio data to the Sense platform, devices can access a much wider pool of knowledge in order to react to situations in the most effective and efficient way yet.
This cloud-based machine learning means that each device does not need on-board processing power, allowing devices to be lighter, faster and less expensive to manufacture.
Most importantly, each device can learn from the experience of others — enabling computers to move away from a rules-based, pre-programmed approach, evolving to understand the complexities of humans and their environments, and react accordingly.
Neurence was founded by a group of world-class mathematicians and software engineers in Cambridge, England. Representing one of Europe's premier technical groups, the team at Neurence has built a highly intelligent, cloud-based central repository of information, Sense.
Neurence’s core technology, Sense, is hosted in a shared cloud storage architecture, meaning devices and applications can consult Sense’s ‘brain’ when they come across a new situation.
Within Sense, Neurence’s development team has created a technology that learns from the experience of all connected devices. From this, Sense will automatically instruct the device on what to do based on the optimal outcome of other devices' history.
These learnt repositories of information can be updated and refined in light of new information received by each device and application, sending this optimized information back to all devices.
Neurence’s technology self-learns, therefore the more devices that are connected to the cloud, the more intelligent the Sense cloud becomes. The Sense platform can be used to power any number of devices, such as phones, smart glasses and home appliances. Connected devices will instantly be able to access an almost infinite library of information, stored in our cloud.
Any device with audio and visual sensory output can be connected into Neurence’s core cloud platform, Sense, to take advantage of the recognition algorithms.
By constantly communicating the camera and audio feed to Neurence's cloud-based brain, devices accessing the Sense cloud software can actually understand what they are looking at and the sounds they are hearing. Users no longer have to type in URLs or type keywords into search engines to find out more about the world around them – automatic recognition means we can truly enter a world of visual search.
With devices accessing Sense’s cloud technology, Neurence allows:
Instantaneous recognition of images and sound — all content is stored server-side, rather than on the device
Scalable recognition of millions of objects — it is only Sense that needs to encounter the object before, not each device
Immediate user-generated content — users can add their own content and then send this up to the cloud, making this information instantly available to all other users connected into our platform
