Gatfol Tracker is in Oil…

 

 

You have special energy related interests with team presence in Russia, Libya and Iraq.
You need to stay on top of security situations in these countries across many regions – in real time.
Using any of the large search engines like Google to get your information poses the following major problem:

What search words do you use?

Security situation Chechnya?
– but what if an online report exists that covers “Security situation Grozny?
The capital region of Chechnya is relevant to you,
– but your search words will not make the necessary keyword “hits”.
Do you enter another search to cover the keyword “Grozny“?
– and what if the report title does not include Security situation but rather “Military- and other threats?
– once again your search words will not hit.
The amount of possible search word permutations can run into millions…
…making it impossible to cover them all manually…

Gatfol Tracker not only searches across the web,
but given the input of “Security situation Chechnya“,
automatically expands the possible search word sets from this input
to hundreds or even thousands to produce the keyword hits that you need.

Let Gatfol Tracker be your search security across the world…

Gatfol Salt…and Pepper

 

“People describe others as being robots because they have no emotions, no heart. For the first time in human history, we’re giving a robot a heart, capable of learning and expressing emotions.”
(Softbank CEO, Masayoshi Son)


Softbank’s PEPPER is a unique personal humanoid that…

…stands 4 feet tall with arms that move, but without legs, weighing 60 pounds…
…has a high-pitched boyish voice and speaks about 20 different languages…
…uses special sensors to detect people’s moods and how they behave…
…uses facial recognition technology to read and interpret emotions…
…interacts with the cloud to develop its own emotional capabilities…
…communicates using a tablet-like display mounted on its chest…
…provides friendly companionship for the lonely, sick or elderly…

Pepper is cutting edge technology – emotions are very hard to machine-capture…but there is something that Pepper technology will not be able to do…Pepper will not be able to semantically handle all the possible natural language permutations of the input instructions given to it by humans.

There are many ways of asking :  “make me a cup of tea” using different word combinations whilst ensuring overall consistent meaning with grammatically correct word combinations : “brew me a cup of  tea”… “I need a cuppa char” …”stew me some Red Bush”  …“make me a mug of tea”…

Current robot language processing abilities are linked to arbitrary parsing of elementary keywords from full human language grammar and syntax. Making sense of all individual words in conversational phrases to create a desired response is difficult. Robotic brains need to understand the meaning and context of sentences in relation to larger conversation chunks to be able to meaningfully react to given instructions. Gatfol parses small groups of words in larger word sets to create natural language semantic paths that enable robots to more effectively integrate keyword sets into the full semantic whole.

 Gatfol is the Salt to Pepper and all its future friends….
