Founder of 55B
Specializing in applied artificial intelligence from a product perspective — specifically in experimental data-driven psychometrics using spatial-temporal data, this effectively mixes machine learning and AI from a theoretical and practical perspective and using the power of both of those tools to understand people’s behavior in relation to digital media at scale — with a specific focus on semantic analysis based feature space reduction. Micah & Michael met at an MIT Hackathon in 2017 where they shared their journeys with each other.
Micah sharing his life in London and Michael sharing the fact that growing up in a small town in upstate New York would change when he moved to San Francisco.
“Growing up in a small town I almost felt like it was a handicap because I would think that people believed because I was from a small town that I had a small mind.” -Michael
Over the course of months Michael set out to have a life in SF and Micah stayed in NYC while working with their startups. They always kept in touch but never knew if one day that their work/personal life would cross.
“ I knew that we shared a similar mindset but practical reality about the way we saw the world. We had a clear and concise way of what we wanted to give this place.”
55B & Centiment will be joining forces on a few different levels. We will only speak about a couple in this article but we will soon be able to share even bigger news.
“He who said he can, and he who said he can not are both usually correct” Confucius.
In technology there has been a few people that have truly wanted to make a splash in certain sectors. Some people feel that media is a great way to get in the technology industry or even trying to build the next BIG app. There are so many distractions that are out there now from small to LARGE things. We are so focused on WHO can scream the loudest that we forget about products that actually make sense. Product, Brand, Lifestyle is something that Founder Michael says a lot. When you want to build a company you want to focus on a few things. Product, sales, direction and execution.
What Micah and Michael are trying to discover is truly different because they are both obsessed with the brain. So Michael considers himself a practicing neuroscientist & Micah has done his long study of the brain with his company. It is fun to watch two people try to figure out the most complex organism known to man.
“I see the the study of the brain as a lifetime mission. I want to not only understand the brain on a larger scale. I want to create access to people of color or underrepresented classes of people to close the gap on neural knowledge.” -Michael
Two Founders that want to change the scope of Artificial Intelligene and start to bring to light their ideas of how AI could be applied, deployed and built is important to them and their clients.
Micah truly understands people and branding when it comes to an AI perspective and he wants to combine that knowledge of people and data science as a form of communication. It would only make sense that he would join the 55B team as an Advisory/Mentor.
“You want to surround yourself with not just people who share the same mindset as you but people that are willing to understand the position you want to create and run with you there.”
55B wants to democratize AI and use it as a tool to solve human complex problems.
Codey is our first product:
Our First product we wanted to make a point about some of the small data that we collected over months and months of understanding human thoughts. As that hostility in the workplace is a known fact! We wanted to show people that you can say things at work that could be taken in a lot of different ways. So we created a way to do that in real time. In that journey of doing it we discovered that with Codey (AI) that we were able to do so much more and at Scale.
If you click above and watch as we are tying. After the immediate input of sentiment data. Codey was able to understand how that person was feeling just based off of words. We share a dream in which a lot of other developers and doers want. We want to be able to speak, translate, understand human emotion and translate that into behavior and action.
What are some ways you are teaching your workforce about NLP(Natural Language Processing)?
What are some ways you are teaching your Executive team about Artificial general Intelligence?
There is a huge learning curve when it comes to Artificial Intelligence. Why do we need it? What is it going to do for our business? & How will it effect our work life in the next 10 years? These are some of the questions that we get from users/executives.
We want people to understand that you already use AI in your everyday life. If you have a smart phone you have been using it for years. We have all created our own neural network that understands our habits, goals(both physical and mental), and emotions. The only problem is that it is scattered all over the place.
People believe that AI isn’t sexy and that it needs more of an image and that is what 55B is looking to do for the enterprise space. We want to be reliable and efficient.
