Brainlike, Inc. delivers computing solutions that reduce streams of sensor data to nuggets of valuable information—automatically and quickly. Applications include generating effective alerts from environmental sensor data under changing conditions and reducing massive amounts of image data to important highlights. We recently delivered a product that automatically highlights marine mammals in high-resolution camera images taken from aircraft, immediately after a flight. Our customer has since independently verified that the product reduced the time it took their marine biologists to analyze the images by 98%. We are currently refining the product for real-time, in flight use. When deployed in this way, the product will enable transmitting marine mammal detections in full resolution over low bandwidth channels, in real time. As a result, operations that are potentially harmful to marine mammals will be barred immediately after the animals have been detected. Our field- programmable products can run on drones, cell phones, smart radios, specialized processors, and cloud servers. Our analysts can help you find sound solutions to meet your monitoring needs.http://brainlike.com/
