Military Grade Technology Now Available to Commercial Developers.

Cognitive Code, a technology company specializing in conversational Artificial Intelligence, is making plans to unveil its patented artificial intelligence (AI) technology to commercial developers, according to John Albert, COO of Cognitive Code.

Profiled in Forbes as a technology that could “take on a major role in the way we search and organize our lives,” SILVIA, the name of Cognitive Code’s flagship AI technology, stands for Symbolically Isolated Linguistically Variable Intelligence Algorithms, said Albert.

The company has been in stealth mode since first launching SILVIA in 2008 according to Albert. “We permitted licensing and testing to only a select group of early adopters, which has included the likes of Northrop Grumman, the global security defense contractor responsible for providing innovative technologies and solutions to the U.S. Military.”

“Cognitive Code is preparing to open up the SILVIA platform to commercial developers with the unmasking of SILVIA and its capabilities via a demo video, first released to a select industry group, and now on the company’s website at, " he noted.

Developers will discover the state-of-the-art system for building smart, conversational apps is incredibly lightweight for creating natural language applications, said Albert. He added that it’s also been optimized for rapid deployment in multiple languages. “SILVIA runs natively on your devices, so there are no concerns about privacy. This also means you don’t need an internet connection.” But, Albert notes, Cognitive Code also provides a server solution for developers who require online interaction. Said Albert, “the potential is incredible.”

Albert also anticipates commercial adoption could be quick as SILVIA can run on virtually any platform including Windows, Android and iOS without the need for expensive infrastructure and with a tiny footprint (5MB or less). “There are unlimited uses for SILVIA in many different applications from car telematics, games, mobile, and education and it’s as vast as your imagination,” he said.

“Remember that SIRI can only be found on Apple products,” he added, “but where can other companies find a conversational AI for their products?” Albert feels SILVIA is the most advanced, flexible, fully conversational, natural language processing tech of its kind. “SILVIA can multi-task, engage in real conversation. She can be serious, playful or snarky, and can think for herself as well as actually taking proactive steps to make life better for users whether it is automatically ordering coffee or sending a spouse a text message to apologize for being late.”

As a developer’s tool, Albert adds, “The potential applications of SILVIA are virtually endless. This is certainly an exciting time for our company.”

Said Albert, “Google I/O 2013 was jam-packed with new features and tools for developers and marketers. We’re looking forward to joining the fray of being a game changer. Google Glasses may certainly be a unique and trendy development in the tech world, but in comparison SILVIA has the potential to be one of the most evolutionary technologies to impact our everyday lives. “

Similar technologies in the field include IBM’s ‘Watson’ and Apple’s Siri, but Albert feels they don’t compare. “SILVIA goes beyond SIRI and Watson, she is nimble and sophisticated in comparison and I think developers will be pleased when they start exploring all her capabilities,” said Albert.

Danny O’Shea, CEO of venture capital firm Channel Mark Ventures, an investor in Cognitive Code, noted that SILVIA was “one of the most positive disruptive technologies we’ve ever seen. Its potential to impact business and consumer technologies is absolutely mind blowing and an absolute game changer.”
