The Team


The team at Algorithmic Intuition has worked together for over a decade with a common goal: advancing the ability to detect human context and activity.  Through the years, we have acquired deep expertise in sensor algorithms, machine learning, consumer products., and the business models needed to make these products successful.  

Our most recent company, Sensor Platforms Inc (SPI), was acquired by Audience Inc in 2014.  At SPI, our team worked to develop advanced sensor fusion and powerful, embedded, machine-learning algorithms for the mobile industry.  

Now, we have a new mission, we are striving to extend the state-of-the-art in eldercare.  Our vision is to make elder-care monitoring as respectful, unobtrusive, useful, and secure as possible.
