Virtual Meeting and Learning Platform

Created the ultimate virtual meeting tool, where meeting attendees go from passive listeners to active participants. The system's multi-pane approach and icon driven action allows individual customization with collaborative tools that provide real time results. The dual video option brings the personal touch back to your meetings and strengthens the communication bond. Creating the system required a very complex technology stack and extensive performance testing and tuning for effective operation at scale anywhere in the world. The platform is especially well-suited for online, interactive learning and training.  The system was recently recognized as one of CIO Review's 20 Most Promising Education Tech Service Providers (2014).

Teaching the Big Ideas of Science through Art (National Science Foundation)

As part of a team that included Morehouse College and Georgia Tech, we provided consulting services in support of integrating our natural language understanding platform, coupled with speech recognition and text-to-speech output into National Science Foundation Award No. HRD-0625731 titled Education Research Grant: Encouraging Students to Pursue Undergraduate Degrees in STEM Fields by Exposing Them to Fundamental STEM Paradigms via Interactive Visual Arts Modules. This was actually a very early augmented reality project, and our particular part was in researching the usefulness of adding a voice-driven help system to this unique learning environment.

Personnel Management Information System (Bulgarian Ministry of Defense)

We performed as the main subcontractor on a Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) contract, Bulgarian Personnel Management Information System Phase 2 (DISA Multiple Award Contract PL512, Solicitation #E50005, awarded December, 2008, ENCORE II). We actually executed all tasks except for contract management, which was handled by our prime partner. We created four major complex software modules integrated into an existing system and used by all branches of the military, supporting over 50,000 personnel in uniform. We also created a unique and effective English Language Training module that has attracted the attention of other major military agencies Eastern Europe. This major technology upgrade was part of countrywide plan to help improve NATO readiness and inject creativity and innovation into the IT procurement process, all the while maintaining the highest levels of security. The project had the attention of both the US Ambassador and the Bulgarian Prime Minister. The US Army contracting officers thought our proposal to be unusually innovative, detailed and well-thought-out, and were actually excited to see it, viewing it as a model proposal for other similar work being done in that part of the world. We were awarded the project over the incumbent contractor's proposal, which is extremely rare.
