A Media innovation spec, and cognitive systems

At Tangerine, we’re seeking a software company partner that shares our interest in two things:

  1. A Media Innovation Spec 

At Tangerine, my company since early 2016, I’ve conceptualized and specified a new set of innovations extending the concept of drawing-model fusion. Previously, and built from that concept, I have 3 patents (owned by my former employer) granted in my name (2015, 2016), for work commercialized in 2012. See examples shown here: Media Innovations (2012). The patents are listed here. I mention them because when Tangerine’s new media innovation spec is implemented, the earlier patents will be obsolete, irrelevant.

Tangerine’s media innovation spec develops, in a new way, the expression of the function of drawing (the act and articulation, I like to say, of “taking a closer look”), within models of any kind. I‘d like to share, with any company who wishes to develop it, the functional spec I’ve produced at Tangerine, a next-gen infusion of “drawing” and modeling. I discuss some of the concepts on Tangerine’s blog, here.

  1. Cognitive Computing Research

Tangerine proposes researching the relation between:

  • cognitive systems (like IBM Watson, and other machine intelligence platforms) and
  • new forms of spatial visual media that will follow from today’s hybridized multi-media, extended by Tangerine’s media innovation specification.

We seek a software company partner that shares our interest in this. I describe here why I see potential for unique research: Immersing Cognitive Systems in New Media

Tangerine Media (built on new innovations eclipsing earlier innovation) provides a richer field for human understanding, and, more fertile ground for the application of cognitive systems. Machine intelligence relies on detection of semantic continuity across diverse and otherwise disconnected units of information. Machine (and human) cognitive systems, if there is magic in them (yes there is), find, reveal, produce, generate… connection, correlation, between disparate things and fragments of information. In a highly complex, spatial, visual, data-heavy environment like the real world, and a job site full of people, actions, tasks, checks, and data of myriad types, cross-data type correlations, the fuel for cognitive systems, are not easy to reveal or detect. The evolution of media itself, through continued development of the concept of the fusion of spatial data (models), and the articulate act of “taking a closer look” (“drawing”), is likely to make the detection of correlation (the fuel of cognition) more accessible to cognitive systems (like IBM Watson, and the Google machine intelligence equivalent).

Tangerine’s media innovation spec is logical, clear, simple, and immediately useful to anyone using models or drawings for anything, and in my opinion, inevitable. For those who can envision it, opportunity exists, ultimately, to pioneer a new category of media, which in terms of influence and significance, may turn out to be not unlike the fusion of sound into silent film 100 years ago. The changes are primary, fundamental, transformational.

In addition, these changes in media may contribute in the field of cognitive computing, providing cognitive systems a more fertile (more correlative) field of data to parse. The power of cognitive systems is the power to respond with useful answers to compound, and not-even-well-formed, open-ended questions that have no pre-defined answers. The media fusion that we can put into the hands of designers and builders everywhere as they think, act, and work, can produce a new kind of data environment, one in which the potential power of cognitive computing is more fully realized.

Tangerine will share our media innovation spec, and our ideas for unleashing cognitive systems within new media, with a software company partner that shares our interest in these opportunities. We’re looking for our ideal partner. Contact us!
