Is Avata Intelligence for you?

In 2007, James Pita and Manish Jain first met in the TeamCore research lab at the University of Southern California.  Under the tutelage of Dr. Milind Tambe, Dr. Pita and Dr. Jain would be inspired to transform their mutual love of mathematics and passion for solving complex problems into a world-changing approach to artificial intelligence (AI).  Most doctoral research simply gets filed away into obscurity amongst volumes of other thesis work. However, Zare’ Baghdasarian, a serial entrepreneur, saw something much bigger than simple theory and Ripple Goyal, an artist with programming talent, knew she could convert these obscure mathematical models into comprehensible visualizations. Thus Avata Intelligence was born.  And with it, Ava – an AI-as-a-Service for the masses incorporating the best of AI under a single umbrella, representing the vanguard of where AI is headed over the next decade.

Originally developed through funding from the Dept. of Homeland Security, Dept. of Defense, and Army Research Labs, Avata Intelligence’s Ava provides all the AI capabilities needed to make better decisions, find new opportunities, and gain insights.

Machine Learning. Behavior Modeling.  Natural Language Processing. Game Theory.  Yeah, Ava isn’t your mom and dad’s approach to AI.

At Avata Intelligence, we’re changing the way the world will use AI.  Ava was designed to help organizations of all sizes, from tech-savvy number-crunchers to AI newbies.

Don’t just be a spectator – get in the game!
