Is it the case that Intelligent Machines are much closer than we thought? Well at Digital Intermediary we know this to be the case. We have been working in the field of designing intelligent applications for some time.

Dr Gus Gusius and Paul Teague are the inventors of a new paradigm for an old problem. Departing from conventional though that is still stuck in the 1950’s; in the view of those who have developed the new thinking Machine. The patent work can be viewed at, PCT: [].

For those who want to know more about our work we encourage thinking people to respond and ask questions, we are also available to discuss aspects the work with potential licensees
The inventors believe that the HAL from 2001 is in fact here, despite many pop culture scientists and serious scientists believing this level of AI is 50 years or more away.

CLOE the thinking machine is expected to be in the market place by late 2011 as Apps for PC;s iPhones and Androids.
