K·Yield v. - Yield Management of Knowledge

Distributed AI system with governance, prevention, security, and productivity tailored to each entity.

KYield offers artificial intelligence systems and services. Our flagship product is the KOS, which is a distributed AI OS that includes enterprise-wide data governance, embedded security, prevention and enhanced productivity. 

Data is tailored to each entity automatically with semi-automated administration through a simple natural language interface (AI systems patent, M. Montgomery. “Modular system for optimizing knowledge yield in the digital workplace”. USPTO #8,005,778, 23 August 2011). The data management system within the KOS is optimized with data physics for machine learning and security.

Our most recent system is The Synthetic Genius Machine (SGM): The SGM is a patent-pending AI system that combined several technologies in our R&D for over a decade (M. Montgomery “synthetic genius machine and knowledge creation system”, USPTO application 16/547,271, 21 August 2019).
