Stochastic Strategies offers a modern approach to technology that companies need to thrive in a new era of rapid business innovation. By focusing on a statistical approach to uncertainty, we are able to provide robust solutions that create value for users in a broad array of technologies.
The size and sources of data are increasing at an exponential rate. When properly processed, this data can yield useful information and insights, which in turn generates useful services and products. We specialize in a statistical framework that ties many seemingly disparate problems together and allows us to approach any new problem with confidence and experience.
Our stochastic framework allows us to rapidly develop robust and adaptive algorithms. These algorithms are inherently designed to operate with realistic noise (especially in “big data” sources) and uncertainty. This framework minimizes the development, tuning and maintenance of specialized heuristics.
We strive to minimize the costs of multi-platform deployment and idiosyncratic coding. A common stochastic algorithmic framework allows for the reusability of robust, tested and modular code avoiding both excessive specialization and generalization. We are able to minimize development and maintenance costs by avoiding fragile, heuristic algorithms. Additionally, we focus on reusable APIs and web-based services.
Precise (consent-based and secure) localization of people and objects (especially indoors where GPS is unreliable) allows us to realize the potential of “location-based services” beyond simple navigation (such as contextually- and personally-relevant advertising, in-store navigation, and environment mapping). Our solutions, backed by more than a decade of direct experience, support a variety of signals scenarios (electromagnetic, optical and acoustic).
The recent explosion in the ubiquitous and continuously-collected sensor data (location, inertial, acoustic, optical and electromagnetic) from smartphones and mobile devices creates practical opportunities for truly revolutionary technology. We realize this potential by using devices as multi-sensor platforms rather than merely portable computers running software.
Commonly known simply as "sound." Acoustic signals are used extensively by military submarines, bats and the seeing-impaired to map and navigate the surrounding world. These same signals may be used for a wide range of consumer applications including indoor navigation, 3D modeling and sports tracking. With sophisticated signal processing algorithms, this rich source of information can be decoded and put to use with inexpensive hardware (hardware available in practically all smartphones).
