The notion of artificial intelligence is a thing of the past. The reality of artificial intelligence is a thing of today.

The AI

Dr. Scott R. Parfitt, Ph.D believed software could emulate human behavior - so he developed an AI system that could read, write & learn.




Dr. Parfitt, Content Technologies, Inc.’s (CTI) Founder and CEO is a Psychophysicist, technologist, educator and visionary. Dr. Parfitt started the first AI Lab at Notre Dame in the early 80's and his mentor was a graduate student of B.F. Skinner. Today his area of concentration is known as ‘Deep Learning’.

Between 1982 and 1983, Dr. Parfitt was a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame completing work on his Ph.D. in psychology.  He specialized in an area called psychophysics, now referred to more commonly as human factors - working on human/machine interfaces. He was also a self-taught expert programmer in a variety of languages on mainframes to PC’s teaching courses at Indiana University and Notre Dame (before computer science was considered a separate discipline). In addition to a degree in psychology, Dr. Parfitt also earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy where he specialized in logic and reasoning.  These interests led to early prototype artificial intelligence engines for teaching while at Notre Dame where he designed and taught the first AI courses at the university.

As a young graduate student Dr. Parfitt formulated a mathematical model to describe human behavior. This model was further developed at the University of Notre Dame to account for the behavior of various serial murders to illustrate that behavior was (1) rational, (2) predictable, and (3) therefore, controllable; and lastly to do so would require AI systems capable of emulating the behavior. The model was very complex. Where any behavior was a function of the interaction of the individuals' motivational state, emotive state, learning, perception, developmental level, and other psychological functions at a given time t. Each psychological function was composite of a recent history folded into a simple set of premises weighted to yield a value at t where t was constantly evolving. He backed the history of Charles Manson and other serial killers into the set of equations to demonstrate that we could predict reliably his and their behavior. Dr. Parfitt's Ph.D. dissertation dealt with employing a mathematical model of human decision making to measure and thereby remove in real time overt and covert bias from human judgment.

Upon graduating from Notre Dame, Dr. Parfitt was recruited by William C. Brown Company as its first acquisitions editor in educational and software publishing. While at William C. Brown Company (now McGraw Hill), Dr. Parfitt learned the textbook publishing industry and traveled around the United States visiting universities and colleges to determine how software would best fit the publishing industry, academia, and student learning before leaving Brown and founding his own successful company Soft Productions, Inc. After a successful exit to one of the major publishers, Dr. Parfitt and the other principles agreed to a non-compete in educational publishing for 5 years at which point he taught as a Professor at the University of Notre Dame and did consulting work with Emerson Electric and several other Fortune 500 companies developing various successful technology based ventures, mostly in computer based training and learning as well as developing ways to increase profitability and efficiency using technology.

In the early 2000’s the internet and computer technology reached a point in terms of speed and efficiency where Dr. Parfitt could devote one hundred percent of his time to his love of AI. The current AI being researched and developed at CTI is a somewhat more unique, elegant solution dealing with the realm of conventional knowledge, much more discrete and available. The algorithms recreate functions of the mind where the computer becomes smarter over time, creating a distinct reinforced knowledge base capable of evolving and learning on their own.

Mission

At CTI, we're are passionate about giving companies and people an edge on information overload using artificial intelligence.

Discovering insights

We believe that time is your most valuable asset. Information is growing exponentially and only an AI system can keep up with it. AI can save you time and money by accomplishing tasks such as reading thousands of articles from around the world and summarizing them for you.

Generating content

As the barriers for launching businesses and products continue to decrease, companies struggle breaking through the noise. The search engines & social networks that bring customers to your door rely on one thing to push your company to the top of that noise - content. When customers interact with your product, quality content keeps them stimulated, engaged, & ultimately, your customer.

Navigating the new competitive landscape

Today, competition is moving at the speed of technology. The old rules are a thing of the past - companies can choose to adapt or be disrupted. An AI engine can offer valuable insight and clues to help navigate the new global business landscape.

Education

At CTI we believe that education is important to all of us and we are passionately working to transform it. Using our proprietary AI, we can create educational content at a price point that can’t be matched. Our AI systems can create with a staff of 20 what it would take a large publisher with a thousand employees to replicate. We are breaking down the cost barriers and have proven that AI can produce better content in less time at a fraction of the cost. Talk about leveling the playing field! We provide solutions for secondary education, higher education, continuing education and corporate training. Have you own content? No problem, we can repackage and repurpose for you.

Government • Political

At CTI, we believe AI will make or break political elections in the years to come. The political landscape has become far too complex and it will take an AI system to understand and navigate the dynamics of local markets and frame the issues. Employing AI to harness the power of crunching, analyzing and predicting raw data in real time will prove invaluable.

While it's too early to draw many conclusions, AI will no doubt play a significant role in politics and government and provide an edge to help transform and win elections.
