We are building awesome mobile games. We like to think they don’t suck because we put a lot of attention into each game; details, design, and all that jazz. Each and every game will improve upon the first, ascending in quality to an ultimate point in gaming where we, at Inkhorn, can gladly rest our laurels on. This is Inkhorn and we create games. At Inkhorn I'm responsible for spearheading the development of Lockstep.IO a proprietary open source networking API designed specifically for massively multiplayer online games.
Still using email and Excel to manage your retreats? Retreat Booking Guru is a retreat management platform to save your sanity. Robust Registration, Direct Payouts and Room Booking Bliss. My role at Retreat Guru is directly concerned with the hands on research and development of a novel adaptive pipeline powered by Natural Language Processing, Auto-Classification and Auto-Extraction. The flagship project code-named "Vaccuum" is intended to be used as an extended search engine experience for finding every spiritual retreat in the world, and then automatically generating as much useful information about those retreats as possible for the direct integration into the Retreat Guru website.
Nu Messenger is a cross-platform integrated chat system featuring fully rendered markdown, multi-language syntax highlighting, million user private conversation support and QR-scan based conversations for attaching "Nu Messages" to physical objects and/or locations (ie. a shipping crate or a coffee shop). Nu Messenger has been called "the Slack/HipChat of the internet of things". I was fully responsible for all research and technical development on Nu Messenger, including the successful completion of two large research projects in the Natural Language Processing and Natural Language Compression and Storage fields.
A Not-For-Profit machine learning and adaptive systems research and development organization offering it's services for zero cost to other Not-For-Profits and Charities in good standing. Honey, a laterally scalable machine learning package for .NET, is currently the R&D focus of the organization; but efforts also extend to adaptive systems evangelism and awareness in the form of group lectures, workshops and scientific community reach-out events.
A Not-For-Profit organization pitched and launched at Startup Weekend Ottawa 5 (#SW05). Users 'Opt In' to automatically send their Instagram, Facebook or Twitter photos to be scanned by facial recognition against a missing children database. These photos contain valuable embedded GPS and timestamp information that can be delivered to authorities when a child is flagged in a photo - and be used as actionable intelligence to help recover a missing child who would otherwise not make it home. OPTIN is currently partnered with Helping Faceless a similar organization in India using volunteers with camera phones to recover missing children with the help of facial recognition networks provided by OPTIN.
Because all true interactions are conversational in nature. A new iOS centric conversation platform designed to replace comment boxes at the end of blog posts, news articles and YouTube videos with Hive Conversations; Whenever someone replies to a conversation, you receive a push notification on your iOS device and can reply just like it were an iMessage, but with extended rich media support, and intelligent content awareness (Tweets appear as Tweets, animated GIFs appear as animated GIFs, etc).
Dashbook lets you create your personal view of the internet by curating the information you care about, when you need it. A new iOS centric live adaptive data platform reaching for the next level of human-device ergonomics. Dashbook gets to know you, and provides you with relevant contextual information when you need it; similar to how Google will notify you well before you leave that your trip to work today will take an extra 20 minutes because of traffic - but for everything.
YarnLang.com (No Longer Available)
Gracefully unifying the web with tiny strings. The more you know - the less you need. A foundation agnostic namespace oriented language for collecting data using a wide range of communications protocols (WebSockets, SocketIO, TCP, UDP, WebEvents, WebHooks, Long Polling, 3-Legged oAuth, etc), massaging that collected data, and then forming deep recursive queries about it; I.e. getting a Twitter timeline and the Google Analytics data associated with it, and merging the two into a useful graph. YarnLang was created as the domain specific language for processing all of the data for Dashbook users - but is fully open source to allow community extension, and to further develop an open language specifically for data handling.

Specializing in high-confidentiality clients, the Gato provides algorithms concerning adaptive systems to companies for white label use or resale. Although a great deal of cases involve traditional machine learning to some extent, most solutions require us to reach out to specialist consultants in a number of scientific domains; The ability to problem solve across massive knowledge ranges is what makes the Gato so uniquely successful.
MerrowAnalytics.com (No Longer Available)
A report running and deep analysis tool for social marketing outreach programs, providing social marketing specialists with an effective low cost system for generating tractable ROI metrics as a result of social outreach.
