I'm the founder of a local startup called Kimera Systems where we've developed the most advanced artificial intelligence technology to date (yes, I am very biased :). The AI is capable of comprehending what is going on in the real world and predict how things will and should evolve. It then issues intelligence briefings (fancy recommendations) to devices and web apps so that technology starts aligning itself with what the user is doing.
We're launching our SDK on December 2nd with a small launch event downtown Portland (Vadio offices) from 5.30pm to 7.30pm and I'd like to invite anyone in this group to join. We will serve pizza, beer, wine and soda :)
