Neuron soundware builds and trains software, which understands audio

Neuron soundware uses artificial intelligence methods to gain understanding of audio signals. The unique pre-processing of the input data via complex physical sensor model allows neural network to learn and identify the important features quickly with high confidence.

Pavel Konecny photo

Pavel Konecny studied cybernetics and biomedical science. He started working for IT consulting company using the best-class technologies. He completed more than 35 technology and strategy projects for 25 clients in 3 different continents during his 11 years long career at Accenture. For example, He had designed a high-performance algorithm to calculate the best offer using the consumption data from the electricity smart-meters. The algorithm, running in memory MySQL DB, optimally computes up-to 500 billion individual math operations in a few seconds using off the shelf workstation. It is successfully deployed in Australian web site Switch-on operated by Government of Victoria.

He is known as one of the most innovative person in the team. He is bringing new ideas every day. His colleagues were frequently asking, why didn’t you start your own business? The last ten years, he was giving the same answer: “I am waiting for computers to be powerful. So the artificial intelligence development can be done effectively.” So that time is finally here. He believes that in less than 30 years, we would have a choice to make. Either die or move our minds to computers and live for ever.

Pavel Klinger got his first computer, when he was 11 years old. Unfortunately, the only tape with games got damaged. So he had to start programming them by himself. When he was 15 years old, he built his first neural network. He wanted software, which would write down his home works. It didn’t fully work, but he could type them faster. The neural network was predicting which word he was going to type next based on the first two letters.

He has now decided to fulfill his 20 years later dream. The project allows him to combine the best my knowledge – computer science and my art hobbies (music, movies). He can use his an exceptional mathematical and programming talent. His creativity is also expressed via his hobby in music – front man of folk music group.  He believes that we are close to explore the source of human brain creativity. And he wants to be part of it.

 

Filip Sedlak studied chemical informatics in order to use computational power to help researchers figure out the world around us. He is a developer, who loves coding. Working for a pharmacy giants, he developed several intelligent tool for managing chemistry data and for precise human and animal genome editing. His specialization is to convert the ideas and algorithms into the piece of functional software well designed for the end-users. 

He speaks more than 8 different programming languages and still hungry to learn new technologies. He is constantly moving on to design more and more complex systems and sophisticated algorithms. His interest lies in bridging the knowledge gap between the different fields. He believes there is a great value in understanding at least two fields. Finally he got the last challenge – discovery of our own human mind.

 

Dusan Fedorcak is fascinated by artificial intelligence since his childhood. He falls in love with a vision of robots as presented in the science fiction books written by Isaac Asimov and William Gibson. Hence he dedicated his live to the computer science and research of artificial intelligence. During his PhD studies, he worked with several research groups where he gained experience in computational mathematics, scientific visualization, multi agent systems and his favorite topic – the self-organizing neural networks.

After completing his studies, he worked as a software developer and used his AI experience in building several smart application. The last couple of years, he worked as chief architect of a rapid prototyping and visualization platform for machine learning. Now, he wants to contribute to the technological and algorithmic advances to fulfill his dream of building an autonomous intelligent being, who can be your friend.
