cortical.io

cortical.io's technology is inspired by the latest findings on the way the human cortex works. It breaks with traditional methods based on pure word count statistics or linguistic rule engines. The central component, cortical.io's Retina, encodes words in the same way as sensorial information is fed into the brain, using a SDR (sparse-distributed representation). While traditional systems are based on counting words, cortical.io's Retina uses a substantially finer-grained representation for every word: 16,000 semantic features are captured for every term. The Retina then generates semantic fingerprints of language elements like words, sentences, or whole documents. These semantic fingerprints help to identify the meaning behind natural language and allow direct computational comparison between any pieces of text.
