ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS

AI, as applied today

In the past five years, AI has made some remarkable achievements. Objects can be accurately recognised in images randomly picked from the Internet, and human champions in games of skill and chance such as Go and Texas Hold ‘Em poker have been beaten. Technologies thought impossible only a few years ago, such as automated driving, are now a reality.

Impressive as these accomplishments are, they merely skim the surface of the number of challenges currently in need of solutions. Many real problems facing industry and society today remain to be solved and AI and machine learning can, in many instances, play a vital role. Yet figuring out how to apply them to any of these problems may seem daunting, even to the most dedicated professional.

Neuranext

Neuranext has the potential to assist. We start the AI journey by asking “What do you want to achieve?” This is step one in determining if AI can assist to solve a specific problem. We then advise what may be done, which can include helping clients to frame the problem by assisting them to identify and define key metrics, variables and datasets. From there we commence a journey of research and development, culminating in a deployable system that will enhance outcomes for the specific task. Example industries where our abilities can be deployed are medicine, engineering and security.

Our scope

Neuranext’s Director, Chairman and co-founder, Dr Andrew Kyngdon, has the experience to work with clients on problems that involve making decisions of a high stakes nature. He has several years experience in high stakes situations involving large scale datasets. Neuranext believes that high stakes situations reinforce our underlying philosophy – that we work to assist people to solve problems. After all, the most powerful Neural Network ever devised is the human brain.

If you feel that you have a problem that you think AI or Machine Learning can help solve, please contact us using the facilities below. We are based in Sydney, Australia.

Who we are

Neuranext is led by four skilled professionals with extensive experience in academia, research and commercial operations.

Dr Andrew Kyngdon

Dr Kyngdon earned his PhD in psychometrics and mathematical psychology from Western Sydney University. He was an EAA Post Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of New South Wales before moving to the US to take up the position of Senior Research Scientist at MetaMetrics, Inc., a pioneering edutech company in North Carolina. Upon his return to Australia, he was made an adjunct associate professor of the University of Western Australia. Now based in Sydney, Dr Kyngdon co-founded Neuranext to pursue interests in Artificial Intelligence, particularly in Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. In August 2017, Dr Kyngdon was an invited keynote speaker at the inaugural Jingshi Conference on Educational Data Mining and Applications at Beijing Normal University, China, where he presented on Long-Term Recurrent Convolutional Neural Networks for Automated Essay Scoring using images of scanned essays. He returns to Beijing in 2018 to conduct an introductory workshop in Artificial Intelligence for the doctoral students of Beijing Normal University. Whilst fluent in both the R and Python programming languages, he prefers to use AI libraries including Caffe, Caffe2, PyTorch and TensorFlow for his work. He regularly attends the Sydney Data Science Breakfast Meetup and other events concerning AI and Data Science.

Peter Fadeyev

Peter is a Communications professional who has spent almost 20 years working with some of the world’s most valuable blue-chip brands. These include Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Nissan, Infiniti and AkzoNobel. He has helped build the public profiles of some of the biggest multi-national corporations through targeted public relations and by regularly landing media coverage in many large-scale publications. Peter earned his B.A. (Honours) Psychology from Western Sydney University from his research into prison inmates’ reactions to social and spatial density. His mechanical engineering training and qualifications are from the Chisholm Institute in Australia.

Adrian Tyson

Adrian has extensive experience in business operations and managing growth across multi-state operations in roles including general manager and financial controller. He managed a decade of double-digit growth to ten million dollars annual revenue in extremely lean economic conditions in the Automotive Aftermarket sector. Clients included Macquarie Bank, Toyota Motor Corp., Mercedes Benz, Crown Forklifts, Renault Australia, NSW Health and the Volkswagen Group. Adrian has successfully managed acquisitions and their integration as well as start-ups in light manufacturing, film services and importing businesses. In the creative space as a screenwriter, producer and director Adrian has twice had short films selected for the Cannes Film Festival Court Metrage section (2014 & 2017) as well as being selected in competition at the Academy Award qualifying St Kilda Film Festival (2018). Adrian earned his B.A. Psychology & Master of Teaching from Western Sydney University.

Daniel Kind

Daniel combines twenty years of information technology experience with ten years of focussed electronic and data security consulting. With a practical and efficient Project management approach to enterprise technical challenges, Daniel remains resolutely dedicated to the demystification and creative delivery of secure and valuable human to machine solutions. Daniel has previously successfully delivered people security screening solutions to major infrastructure sites, integrating multiple non-technical and technical stakeholder requirements into efficient deliverables. Daniel is a technologist at heart, asking not how to bend a technology solution to the status quo, rather, educating and assisting creative problem solving by working at a deeply human level with teams.
